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 Brooklyn Center, MN

Over the past three-quarters of a century Brooklyn Center has changed considerably, transformed from a landscape dotted with truck farms to a diverse fully developed city.

This general area had been protected from settlement by the Fort Snelling Reserve because of an early treaty with the Dakota Indian tribe. However, the government later "opened" the area to settlement after they signed a later contract, which allowed for settlement, with the Sioux tribe over the same land in 1881 and 1882.

In 1850, a man named Ezra Hanscom was the first settler who had arrived in the area, traveling from Maine to Minnesota. During the summer of 1852, the first families relocated into the region and began clearing land to build their homes and farms. American Indians were present in this area at the time, but were generally not hostile. In these early days, excitement most often arose as the result of claim jumping amongst settlers.

Many of the early settlers came from Maine and the majority were former residents of New England. In 1853, Brooklyn Center was named after the railway village and former township of Brooklyn, Michigan by settlers who arrived in the area from southern Michigan, although most people believe that Brooklyn Center was named after Brooklyn, New York.

Brooklyn Center, as it is currently known, is comprised of parts of Brooklyn Township (which was established in 1858, the same year that Minnesota achieved statehood), and Crystal Township (established in 1860). As the City of Minneapolis grew, truck farmers in the area became nervous that their taxes would increase if Crystal Township were annexed by Minneapolis, and they took legal action to establish the village of Brooklyn Center in 1911. The community celebrates this event every year.

On February 14, 1911, an election was held at the Earle Brown Farm in a garage. There were 14 votes against incorporation and 69 votes in favor of incorporation out of the 83 votes that were cast. However, it wasn't until 1920 that women were permitted to vote. As a result the incorporation papers were filed in the office of the Secretary of State on February 18, 1911.

The first mayor of the community, who served between 1911 and 1915 was a man named R. Reidhead. The council meetings were held on the 2nd floor of the Ruhl Howe Store, which is currently located at the intersection of Brooklyn Blvd and 69th Street, at the location of the Brooklyn Center Mobil. The room served baked chicken dinners and held dances. This was also the location of the first post office in the community.

Subsequent council meetings were held on the east side of Brooklyn Blvd. on 57th Avenue North in a village tool shed. The building reportedly had vicious mosquitoes and a dirt floor and was later relocated to accommodate County Road 10. In 1949, a $25,000 bond issue was passed by the community and a municipal liquor store was built at the site. City offices were relocated to the intersection of Lyndale and 65th Street. However, the community was quickly growing, and in 1954, the building was expanded to accommodate general administrative offices and council chambers. Profits from the liquor store worked to pay for the entire enlargement project. The city recognized municipal liquor stores as a good source of revenue, and there are now three municipal liquor stores in the community.

The village offices were relocated to what was previously known as the "Annex on Willow" located at 7100 Brooklyn Boulevard in 1960. Following a successful bond referendum for $2,280,000 the new Brooklyn Center Community Center and City hall were constructed on Shingle Creek Parkway in 1971. The cost of building the municipal garage and the east fire station was also covered with the sale of bonds.

There were 13 city employees of Brooklyn Center in 1957. These days, there are 130 employees working for the community and, in 1986, the budget for the community was $3,594,096. In 1946, the Brooklyn Center Volunteer Fire Department was established and was authorized to have 40 employees. Currently, there are two persons on probation and 36 active employees in the Brooklyn Center Fire Department. In 1953, a full time police department was organized. There are now 40 full time or 48 permanent employees in the police department, which includes 17 persons on patrol, five investigators, two captains, and a fire chief.

In 1911, the population of Brooklyn Center was 500. The population continued to increase, most radically after the Second World War. In 1950 the population was 4,284 but by 1960 the population increased to 24,356, and further increased by 1970 to 35,173 persons. Around this time, the city reached it's highest population to date. By 1980, the population had decreased to 31,230 and in 1984 to about 30,820.

A Manager/Council form of government was approved by the voters in 1966 and rather than remaining a village, Brooklyn Center became a city. The council is now comprised of four city council members, who are elected at large to three year terms and a mayor, who is elected to a two year term.
