MaryBeth Schroeder

Ms. Schroeder’s Ocean County roots go deep. She was born at the old Point Pleasant Hospital, which no longer exists. She attended Point Pleasant Beach High School and graduated cum laude from Boston University. She graduated from the Rutger’s University School of Law-Camden. While there, in her third year, she had the honor of being the student of the Honorable William H. Gindin. At the time he was a sitting Bankruptcy Judge for the District of New Jersey, in Trenton and went on to be the Chief Judge of the Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Jersey. It was he who instilled in Ms. Schroeder her love for the Bankruptcy Code.

After her law clerkship in Monmouth County, working for the Honorable Theodore Lebrecque, Jr., she was lucky enough to go to work for Bunce D. Atkinson, who has a bankruptcy law practice and sits as a Chapter 7 Trustee in the Trenton vicinage of the Court. It was he who taught her the role of the importance of the Chapter 7 in helping people to rebuild their lives after financial difficulty.

Then, for the next twenty years, Ms. Schroeder worked in a small bankruptcy practice in Toms River, where she honed her lawyering skills, continued to learn and teach her clients about bankruptcy, and learned and practiced compassion in her law practice.

Opportunity coupled with preparedness in May 2013, when Ms. Schroeder opened her own practice devoted primarily to representing consumers in the Bankruptcy Court. She continues to provide her clients with individual attention in all cases and the best quality legal advise, tailored to each clients’ specific needs.
