Robert L. Pryor, Long Island Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Trustee

Robert L. Pryor, Long Island Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Trustee [1]Written by Craig D. Robins, Esq.
    
This post is part of a series of biographies and profiles of Long Island bankruptcy trustees and judges [2].

Long Island Chapter 7 Trustee Robert L. Pryor enjoys a great deal of respect from the bankruptcy bar who recognize him as a bankruptcy attorney who is not only savvy with issues in large-scale corporate restructuring Chapter 11 cases, but also familiar with the finer legal issues surrounding consumer cases.  Bob has been involved in several high-profile cases in the past.
 
Bob has been a panel trustee in the Eastern District of New York since 1984, where he is assigned cases filed in the Central Islip Bankruptcy Court.
 
Bob is the managing partner and co-founder of the Westbury bankruptcy law firm,  Pryor & Mandelup LLP,.  He and partner, Scott Mandelup, began that firm in 1987.  Prior to that time, Bob had his own firm in Hempstead.
 
Bob obtained his bachelor of arts degree, Phi Beta Kappa, from Hobart and William Smith Colleges in 1974, and his law degree from Hofstra University Law School in 1981.  He was admitted to practice law in New York in 1982.
 
He is very active in the bankruptcy bar and frequently lectures on a variety of issues.  I have often quoted and written about the commentary Bob has provided at continuing legal education programs.  Bob has been a featured speaker at county and state bar association seminars, as well as tax symposiums.
 
In February of this year, Bob and I were on a panel of speakers, together with Judge Eisenberg and Trustee Andrew Thaler [3], in which we gave a bankruptcy presentation to attorneys and judges in a program of the Theodore Roosevelt American Inns of Court .
 
Bob has a reputation of being a highly knowledgeable Chapter 7 trustee who tends to be fair and realistic, and who is usually guided by sound business judgment. 
 
He is one of only two trustees in the Central Islip Bankruptcy Court who requires debtors appearing before him to provide a laundry list of documents before the meeting of creditors.  This is a relatively new requirement that he implemented this year.
 
Bob lives on the North Shore of Long Island.  Outside of practicing law, one of his passions is tennis.
 
Although it looks like he is testifying at some Congressional committee, I took the photo of Bob at a recent bankruptcy seminar in which he was a panelist.
