We can't solve every problem, but we have helped many people to improve their credit scores and get out from under crushing debt.

Bankruptcy is a Possible Solution to Many Common Debt Problems:

  • Harassment by Creditors – Are you getting collection calls and letters for bills you can't pay?
  • Robbing Peter to Pay Paul – Are you taking cash advances from one credit card to pay another?
  • Payday Loans – Are you caught in an unending cycle of short-term high interest loans?
  • Foreclosure – Are you in danger of losing your home? If you have a second mortgage, there is a good chance you will be sued after you lose the house to foreclosure. A Chapter 13 bankruptcy might be the best way to save it.
  • Repossession – Have you missed one or more car payments? A Chapter 13 bankruptcy might be the best way to catch up. If your car is repossessed and you are unable to deal with the lender, the car will be sold at a wholesale auction, usually at a heavy loss, and you will probably be sued for a surprisingly large amount of money. You will then have a judgment against you and no car.
  • Lawsuits & Judgments – Have you been sued or threatened with a lawsuit? If a creditor wins a lawsuit against you (which often happens by default) a judgment will be entered against you and the creditor will look for ways to collect, including wage garnishments and bank levies.
  • Garnishments and Levies – If a creditor garnishes your paycheck, you could lose a quarter of your take home pay. If you have a bank account, a creditor might drain it to pay its judgment.
  • Low Credit Score – A low credit score can be devastating. You either won't be able to get a loan at all, or will be forced to pay high interest rates, which may make the payments too high to afford. Even worse, a low credit score may make it hard to rent an apartment or get a good job. Call us to talk about improving your credit.
  • Driver's License Suspended After an Accident without Car Insurance – If you can't afford to pay the damages, bankruptcy may be the only feasible way to get your license back.

About Blaine, MN

There were three rivers that made the Blaine region unique, in addition to the wetlands between them. These rivers were the St. Croix, the Rum, and the Mississippi and they became the hunting grounds for the Ojibwa and Sioux Indian tribes because they attracted wild game such as deer, elk, moose, and bison. In 1679, this was before three explorers named Picard Du Gay, Michael, and Father Louis Hennepin became captives of the Sioux and were taken into the region.

In 1849, the eight counties of Anoka, Pembina, Mankato, Wauneta, Wabasha, Washington, Benton, and Ramsey were established. Originally, Anoka was part of Ramsey County. Later, the eight Anoka County townships that make up modern-day Anoka County were established. These townships include: Centerville, Oak Grove, St. Francis, Columbus, Bethel, Round Lake, Anoka, and Watertown, later changed to Dover and then to Ramsey. Part of Anoka Township was the region that is now Blaine.

In 1862, a native of Ireland named Philip Laddie was the first settler in the region. Mr. Laddie was the namesake of Laddie Lake where he settled shortly after he arrived. When Mr. Laddie died, his family then relocated to Minneapolis. In 1865, a Civil War Veteran and freed African American slave from Kentucky named Greenberry Chambers made a claim to the region. Mr. Chambers is considered to be the first permanent settler in Blaine.

Some landowners in east Anoka County elected to begin an action which resulted in separating form Anoka Township in early 1877. Later that year, both the county and the state approved the new township and the first election was held that same year. The first board of supervisors for the township were Thomas Conroy and Thomas Schlief, who were justices of the peace, H. Winder, who was the assessor, G. Murrell, who was the clerk, Richard Delong, George Tisdale, and Moses Ripley, the latter of which was the chairman. Mr. Ripley recommended that a politician from his home state of Maine, named James Blaine be the namesake of the new township. Mr. Blaine had served in both the US Congress and the Maine legislature. In 1884, he was a candidate for President of the US and was the Secretary of State under Presidents Chester Arthur and James Garfield.

The most notable land speculator in Blaine Township between the 1880's and the 1890's was a man named James Elwell. Mr. Elwell bought some 52,700 acres of land and established two livestock farms named the Oak leaf Farm in Ham Lake and the Golden Lake Farm in Blaine. The two farms were connected by a road that had a system of ditching that Mr. Elwell built. Sometime later, this road became part of Lexington Avenue. Mr. Elwell made the marshy land suitable for farming by constructing some 200 miles of ditches. Two other men named Lorenzo Parker and Albert Johnson also bought some large sections of land in Blaine Township and established a horse farm. Mr. Johnson willed his land and his fortune to Edna Dickerson, who was his cousin, and, in 1909, she constructed the Radisson Hotel, which was located in Minneapolis. Her and her husband, named Simon Kruse, grew produce for the Flame Room Restaurant in the hotel on the land that later became known as the Radisson Farm.

Early 1954 brought the incorporation of Blaine as a village in order to avoid Spring Lake Park from taking additional land.

That same year, an election for the first officers was held. Thomas Forsberg was the village attorney, Ronald Hill and Henry Piotrowski were constables, George Applequist and Marvin White were justices of the peace, Edna Bremer was the assessor, Robert Dahl was the treasurer, Ed Harrier, Louis Steffen, and Carl Otte were the trustees, C Gottwaldt was the clerk, and Alfred Bernstein became the first mayor of Blaine. Mr. Bernstein was the only mayor of Blain as a village and served as mayor for ten years.

In southern Blaine, starter home developments began appearing following WWII. During the 1950's, other housing developments sprang up. In 1959, a developer named Vern Donnay presented the village council with a preliminary layout of land for 1,500 homes on 480 acres on University Extension and eastward between 109th and 102nd Avenues. The plans included a baseball diamond, a swimming pool, and fully equipped playground and park areas. This development was known as the Oak Park Addition. Mr. Donnay also presented plans to the council of the village for a shopping center known as the Oak Park Mall, located at University Extension and 109th Street.

In 1952, the Blaine-Anoka County Jane's Field/Airport was established by the Metropolitan Airports Commission with the acquisitions of land in eastern Blaine. During the early history of the airport the University of Minnesota played an important role. The administrative building and the departmental flight facilities program were relocated to the new airport that same year. The facilities program included chase support for balloon research, a charter service, and student flight training. The upper atmosphere balloon projects were instrumental to the entry of America into the space race. Later, the flight facilities were used by the University Hospital as a neonatal air transport and ambulance for the medical Outreach nurses and doctors to clinics and hospital in outstate Minnesota as well as for the organ transplant program. In 1989, the flight training program for the university ended. Private charter companies took over the flight needs of the university.

The year 1964 brought the incorporation of Blaine as a city. In 1965, Don Knoll, Jerry Trapp, Ray Johnston and Ray Omann became the first council members of the new city and W. Swedeen became the first mayor of the new city of Blaine. The groundwork was laid for a new city hall in 1997. In 2000, construction began and was completed in 2002, located close to Radisson Road on 109th Street. It faces the location of the old town hall.
