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 Maple Grove, MN

In the years leading up to the first European settlement of Maple Grove, the area was inhabited by Winnebago American Indians. The Winnebago had been moved to the area from their homeland in Wisconsin by the federal government, who chose the site of Maple Grove for the relocation because "nobody lived there". However, by 1851, that would suddenly change following the signing of the Traverse des Sioux Treaty, which "opened" lands west of the Mississippi River in Minnesota to American settlement. The first settlers to the area were Louis Gervais and Pierre Bottineau, who arrived in 1851, staking their claims at the fair market price of the time. By 1855, several other settlers had arrived, and the area had a church and many homes.

The town of Maple Grove was established in 1858, its population consisting mainly of farmers of various types. The town became known for its large stands of maple trees, and the maple syrup they produced, as well as being the town's namesake. Early commerce in the town also included such things as creameries, sawmills, and stores. In 1863, the first town hall was built, but was replaced in 1877, the original structure being sold to the highest bidder for $23. The 1877 town hall survived until 1939, when it was destroyed by a tornado. This prompted the construction of a third town hall building, which is still in use as a community building for various events.

From the beginning, schools were an important part of life in the community. In the first years of Maple Grove's existence as a settlement, classes were held out of a volunteer's home. In 1858, a vacant dwelling was appropriated for the purpose, becoming the first structure in the new settlement to be used solely for schooling. By about 1860, the first real schoolhouse was built, near the present-day corner of Territorial Road and Ranchview Lane. In 1887, a new school building was built, a building that stands to this day.

During the first hundred years of the town of Maple Grove's existence, the area remained pastoral and sparsely populated. The largest site of development for many years was the 2,000 acre gravel mining area, opened in the 1920's, and owned by C.S. McCrossan, Tiller Corporation and Aggregate Industries. In recent years, the area of the gravel mines has been slowly re-made, with a vision of it becoming a residential and commercial downtown. About half of the gravel mining area has so far been re-developed.

In 1954, Maple Grove incorporated as a village, but remained rural in character, with a population of about 2,000 living within its 32.64 square miles of land. By the 1960's, suburban sprawl began to reach Maple Grove, near its lakes and on its eastern fringe near Osseo. In 1970, population had reached 6,275 and Maple Grove's growth was beginning to accelerate. During the 1970's, several road construction projects were completed, allowing for easier access to Maple Grove from Minneapolis and surrounding areas. These events had the effect of sparking a building boom in residential and retail construction that continues to this day. The 1970's saw the population of Maple Grove more than triple, with 20,525 residents by 1980.

In 1974, Maple Grove became a city, and had a new city hall built on a site just north of the town hall building, and was in use until 2000, when it was replaced by yet another larger building. The fast turnover of the government buildings has been indicative of the city's rapid growth as a residential and retail center. By 2000, Maple Grove had over 50,000 residents, and had become a major player in the region. In 2003, Minnesota's first "lifestyle center" was built in the city, designed in the spirit of a mid-century American village, and containing a variety of restaurants and upscale stores.

Today, Maple Grove is the home of the 2nd largest amount of retail square footage in Minnesota, behind Bloomington (with the Mall of America). A prominent retail center in the city is Grove Square Shopping Mall, anchored by JC Penney. According to the property developer, the site was chosen because Maple Grove is "the first major city in upstate Minnesota", serving as a "major hub for that submarket", drawing in a customer base from the entire upstate region. The largest employer in the city is Boston Scientific, with over 3,000 employees at its research, development, and manufacturing facility.

One of Maple Grove's newest developments, the Grove, is located near the intersection of Interstate 94 and Maple Grove Parkway, and contains a variety of businesses, as well as a medical complex. The city has seen consistent growth, and still has a fairly large amount of developable land. Poverty levels are very low, at 1.4% as of a 2007 estimate, and the community is very stable. With a median household income of $76,111, the average citizen of Maple Grove earns above the state average. Taken together, Maple Grove boasts one of the highest standards of living in the State of Minnesota.
