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 Eagan, MN

The first inhabitants of the Eagan area were the Dakota (Sioux) Indian tribe. Around 1740, a small village known as Black Dog Village was established along the banks of the Minnesota River. The Dakota had been driven from their homeland near Lake Mille Lacs in north-central Minnesota, and were attracted to the area by nearby trading posts. At his time up until 1803, this part of the world was under either French or Spanish domain.

An American expedition, led by Zebulon Pike, explored the Upper Mississippi region in 1805 for the purpose of finding possible sites for use by the military as frontier forts. However, it was not until after the War of 1812 that a series of frontier forts were built, including Minnesota's Fort Snelling, located at the confluence of the Minnesota and Mississippi Rivers. Started in 1819 and completed in 1824, Fort Snelling acted as a stabilizing influence and developmental focal point of the entire region. The original area of the fort included a parcel of land adjacent to the Minnesota River, approximately one mile wide extending through modern Eagan.

Eagan was named for Patrick Eagan, who was the first Chairman of the Town Board of Supervisors, and owned a 220-acre parcel of land, near the present day city hall building. A man of Irish descent, Patrick Eagan came to nearby Mendota around 1853-4, before settling in what would become Eagan. The area west of the Mississippi River had been opened to settlement in 1851, following the treaty known as Traverse des Sioux. Those who first moved to Eagan were generally from Ireland, French Canada, Germany, or the eastern United States. These settlers established farms in the Eagan area and agriculture would become, and remain, the predominant economic activity of Eagan residents for the next 100 years.

The political organization of Eagan coincided with the admission of Minnesota as a state in 1858, when it became part of Mendota Township. Two years later, in 1860, a special act of the state legislature created the Township of Eagan and gave it its current boundaries, encompassing about 31 square miles of land. Town Board meetings during the early township typically were held in a schoolhouse located near the current site of Northview School on County Road 30. The first Eagan Town Hall was built in 1893, on land near the intersection of Pilot Knob and Lone Oak Roads. After a fire occurred that burned down the original town hall building, the town board decided to place the new town hall as close to the middle of the township as possible. Constructed in 1914, the new building served as the meeting hall for the township until 1965. The 1914 Town Hall building has since been restored, and today serves as a museum commemorating Eagan's past. In 1965, a larger town hall was constructed, which was subsequently replaced in 1983 for a yet-larger structure.

During its farming days, Eagan was known for a time as the "Onion Capital of the United States". In 1950, Eagan remained a farming community, and had only 1,185 residents. By 1970, the population had grown (rather modestly) to 10,398, but was enough that that township began to consider a change its form of governance. Incorporated as a village in 1972, and as a city in 1974, Eagan did not see widespread growth until the 1970's and 1980's, due to its distance from the central cities, and a lack of viable routes to the core of the region. However, during this period several major roadways into the city were completed, including 35E south of Highway 110, and the expansion and relocation of Highway 77 (Cedar Avenue). By 1990, the city's population had burgeoned to 47,409, but the frenetic pace of development began to slow. As of the 2010 census, Eagan's population had reached 64,206, but has appeared to have levelled off.

Eagan gained further prominence in the metro following the relocation of the headquarters of Northwest Airlines (now Delta) and Thomson West (now Thomson Reuters) to the city. Currently the fourth-largest suburb in the Minneapolis-St. Paul Metro area, Eagan is primarily a commuter town to both cities, but also has a large employment base of its own. Thomson Reuters is the largest employer in town, with about 7,350 employees in Eagan, followed by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota (around 3,900 employees), and the United States Postal Service (about 2,000 employees). Also of note is Coca-Cola's Midwest bottling plant, which employs an additional 900 or so employees.

Eagan is a well educated city, with 49.3% of residents 25 and older holding bachelor degrees, and 96.0% holding high school diplomas. The city's educational status has helped it attain a median household income of $79,639 (2008-2012 U.S. Census), that is over $20,000 higher than the state average. Not surprisingly, the city also has a poverty level that is considerably lower than the state average (6.5% vs. 11.2%), and an above-average median value of occupied housing units ($249,800 vs. $194,300 for Minnesota).
