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 Maplewood, MN

The recorded history of Maplewood began about 150 years ago. Dakota Indians inhabited the area of Maplewood prior to the arrival of any settlers. The landscape offered several lakes and marshes and was a combination of prairie and scrub oak. Next to an old Indian trail currently known as Hazelwood Street, the Vincent, Casey, and Bell families traveled away from Saint Paul in 1850. They turned east and began to build their log cabins at what is now County Road C.

However, they were quickly surrounded by the nearby Dakota Indians when they were alerted by the sounds of their axes. These settlers quickly retraced their steps when the Dakota Indians asked them to leave. Having purchased the land for two dollars per acre, the settlers repeatedly made attempts to claim their land. However, they were repeatedly driven back. Eventually, they determined that the Ojibwa Indians had driven the Dakota Indians out of the region in 1853. The Ojibwa Indians didn't mind this tree clearing and simply wanted to hunt on the land. Southern Maplewood was also being settled around this same time. A man named Thomas Carver started farming just west of Carver Lake in 1852. This region was the southern leg of Maplewood, became the township of McLean sometime later. When New Canada Township was established in 1858, it was part of Northern Maplewood.

Next to what is currently known as Edgerton Street, a stagecoach line was the first organized transportation in the region. The trip between Duluth and Saint Paul cost $10 back in 1856. Up until 1870, when the first railroad was built to Duluth, this stagecoach line stayed in service. This first railroad was the Mississippi and Lake Superior Railroad, which ran on the Vento Trail. The Duluth and Saint Paul Railroad owned this railroad line by the 1880's. The Wisconsin Central constructed a railroad line the intersected with the Duluth and Saint Paul Railroad in 1886. At the intersection of these two railroads, the location for a community was planned that would supposedly rival Saint Paul.

A man named William Dawson and his wife Mary platted the community and elected to call the new community Gladstone after a popular British Statesman at the time named William Gladstone. Mr. Dawson was able to convince the Duluth and Saint Paul Railroad to place its stores in the new community and also planned to move his plow work business to Gladstone. The small community prospered for a while. It had a population of approximately 150 people, a brothel, at least two saloons, a hotel, a post office, and employed 1,000 workers during the 1890's.

However, Gladstone met its demise when William Dawson, who founded the community filed for bankruptcy and the plow works was destroyed by fire. Finally around 1917, the railroad closed their stores. Many people were either burning their homes for the insurance money or leaving and Gladstone became a ghost town. Throughout the 1950's, the train depot remained in service, although, in 1910, in order to prevent confusion with Gladstone, Michigan, the railroad was renamed to Gloster. Only some farmers remained in the community.

During the first half of the 1800's, the primary business in the region next to Saint Paul was truck farming. Next to the northern shore of Lake Phalen, a town hall was constructed for New Canada in 1878 and, in 1900, was relocated to Gladstone.

In the township of New Canada, there was a housing boom following WWII. Developments were starting around Wakefield Lake and veterans could receive discounts on new housing. However, the residents wanted improved services such as better roads, water, and sewer. The township of Little Canada became a city in 1953. The 3M Company purchased a large parcel of land on the southernmost portion of New Canada to expand in while the population of New Canada was increasing. Because this land was outside of the Saint Paul city limits, there were rumors that Saint Paul wanted to annex the land where the 3M Company wanted to expand on.

The township of New Canada was offered a deal to trade a connection to the water and sewer system in Saint Paul if they added the 3M Company land within their city limits. New Canada didn't like the deal and determined that forming their own community was their best course of action. The residents voted to become a village in 1957.

As several of the board members of the previous township of new Canada became officials of the new village, the first mayor was a man named Waldo Luebben. One of the first people to recommend the name of Maplewood for the new community was a man named Ed O'Mara. A man named Warren Berger traced a maple leaf from his backyard, which became the logo for the new village. When it was incorporated the population of Maplewood was 14,200 people. Life in Maplewood was much the same as in the former township for some years. The same building that was attached to the Gladstone Fire building was where the village operated out of. Eventually the constables of the township became the police department in Maplewood. In 1954 a man named Len Pepin became a constable and was later the first chief of police in Maplewood. The East County Line, Parkside, and Gladstone Fire Departments provided the fire protection for the Village of Maplewood. In 1997, these fire departments became the Maplewood Fire Department.

By the 1970's, the Village of Maplewood became the City of Maplewood and adopted the manager/council type of government. The population of Maplewood was 30,954 people in 1990 and 39,337 by 2012.
