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 Columbia Heights, MN

In 1898, after separating from its former township of Fridley, the village of Columbia Heights was established. Later, in 1921,The city of Columbia Heights was created in when the Charter of the city was adopted.

The border between Minneapolis and Columbia Heights was marked with a sign that had a white eagle and a Polish flag. This sign was visible while on Central Avenue when entering Columbia Heights. The sign celebrates the community's early Polish-American roots. Columbia Heights became part of Sister Cities International in 1991, and chose for its Sister City Lomianki. During the Warsaw uprising an aircraft of an Allied flyer was shot down in 1944, close to Lomianki. On that mission was the brother of a resident of Columbia Heights, who had been a resident for a long time. The citizens of Lomianki put up a monument in 1987 in honor of the American flier who died during that mission. This is the primary reason that Lomianki was chosen to be the Sister City.

A man named August Beurger was the first police officer in Columbia Heights when, on November 9, 1905 he was paid for one day of work as a constable. The first budget was approved for police services in July of 1921 for the amount of $500. Then the City Council and mayor named Gauvette approved and appointed the first police department for the community in October of 1921. In March of 1931, the two squad cars that belonged to the police department had the first radios installed. In 1944 the Minneapolis Police Department and Columbia Heights agreed that in addition to broadcasting service, Minneapolis would provide all repairs and radios to the now established Columbia Heights Police Department. In January, 1962, a telephone system for requesting assistance from the police was implemented.

The Columbia Heights Police Department underwent several important changes during the 1970's. Under the guidance of Robert Johnson, the Anoka County Attorney, six communities, including Columbia Heights, entered into a joint powers agreement for the development of the Anoka County Joint Law Enforcement Council which is still in existence. Also during the 1970's the State of Minnesota developed a computer system that allowed all of the police agencies that had a terminal to obtain access to all federal and state records such as officer safety information, stolen vehicle files, and warrant information. The Police department has been housed in a 6,000 square foot addition to City Hall that was built in 1978.

There were numerous law enforcement programs that were put in place between the 1980's and the 1990's that are still being used today. Some of these programs include: participation in the National Night Out, DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education), and the School Liaison Officer program. In 1982, the Twin Cities region started using the 9-1-1 system. During the 1980's the records of the department were being computerized, and advances in technology continue to change the way that police officers perform their duties. For example, there are new programs that are based on the Internet that permit accident reporting to be done online through the website for the Department of Vehicle Services and police officers to receive dispatch information on squad computers. Currently, the Police Department is also making use of a mobile license plate reader that alerts police officers to potential stolen vehicles.

Approval was received by the community for a new public safety building that is located at the intersection of Quincy Street and 41st Avenue in 2008. During the latter part of 2009, this building was completed and it is currently housing both the Fire and the Police Departments. The Columbia Heights Police Department currently has an authorized strength of two part time civilian employees, six part time police officers, and 28 full time police officers. This combination is made up of two part time and one full time community service officers, 20 sworn police officers, two corporals, four sergeants, a police captain, and a chief of police.

In 1998, the movie the Wrongfully Accused was written and directed by a Minnesota native named Pat Proft and there are many different references to the community as well as Minnesota in the movie such as: Dr. Fridley, Lieutenant Fergus Falls, The Heights Jamboree, and Columbia Heights itself.

A man named Thomas Lowry purchased and restored the funeral car that was used to transport a deceased Abraham Lincoln. This historical hearse was stored in Columbia Heights when it wasn't being used. The car was featured at many different exhibitions throughout the nation prior to the vehicle's destruction due to a fire in 1911.
