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 New Brighton, MN

New Brighton is a community that is young at heart while being 100 years old. The year 1891 brought the incorporation of the community of New Brighton as a village. New Brighton and the regions that surround it were first inhabited by Native Indians, primarily Ojibwa and Dakota tribes who were traveling through the region harvesting rice, much the same as most other communities in Minnesota. Eventually, they settled at Rice Creek, close to Long Lake. French and English settlers arrived looking for land to homestead during the middle 1800's. A settlement was established that included a mission church, a school, and a general store in 1858.

In 1888, the establishment of the Minneapolis Packing and Stockyards Company became the most significant point in the history that led to the establishment of the community of New Brighton. The company, which was located in what is currently known as the community of New Brighton, was established in order to claim a share of the growing trade and to supply home needs. Leaders in the company were very prominent figures in Minneapolis such as industrialist W. Dunwoody, ex-Minneapolis Mayor W. Eustis, Senator J. Washburn, flour miller J. Pillsbury, and streetcar magnate Thomas Lowry.

In 1891, the Twin City Packing Company brought more business into the region by starting their own operation. There were numerous hide houses, rendering works, and slaughter houses, that region known as the Butcher's Spur. This unique name is still on the map of New Brighton to this day. At the time, the other industries were the Merriam-Barrows lumber yard and office, the Marston Business Block, and Harris Rolling and Forge Company, which operated two iron rolling mills. Although New Brighton wasn't yet an official city around this time, the predominately English founders provided the community with the name of Brighton after Brighton, Massachusetts, which was a center for cattle the served the Boston region, which was probably named after the famed resort community of Brighton, England.

There were other needs that emerged from this bustling community with the housing and hotel industries booming. There were a number of hotels that were established after the construction of the packing plants and stockyards. The Cattlemen's hotel, which was a four story brick building, was the most prominent hotel. Sometime later this hotel was known as the Exchange Building. At the time, this hotel cost $35,000 to build and was ultra-modern.

There were 14 passenger trains that passed daily in 1891, when the New Brighton Village was incorporated. The Twin City Livestock Reporter was the first newspaper to be established. This was a daily newspaper that was located at the Cattleman's Hotel. The cattle and paper industry maintained contact with the cattle centers in Kansas City, Chicago, and Boston through the use of ticker services. The demise of the cattle industry in New Brighton was the result of competition from South Saint Paul, a series of suspicious fires, and a downturn in the economy. In order to maintain its livelihood, the community began farming.

During the early 1900's, first generation groups as well as immigrants from Germany and Eastern Europe started relocating outwards from Northeastern Minneapolis a the streetcar system was expanding. In 1892, the celebration of an annual Polka Dance Party started, which residents of Saint Anthony and New Brighton continue to celebrate their heritage to this day

Because of all of the cattle that were brought in to the stockyards, New Brighton was once known as the Town of Cows. For decades, the original seat of power within the community was the strip of buildings on Old Highway 8. A local farmer reported that bootleggers had buried gold bars next to the eastern shore of Long Lake during the 1920's. During the following years, this rumor spread and sparked a mini gold rush to find the treasure next to Long Lake.

These days, at the New Brighton Stockyard, the community celebrates its colorful past annually, in appreciation of the industry that gave this community its start.

There were 5,731 families, 8,915 households, and 21,456 people living in New Brighton according to the 2010 census. There were 9,479 housing units that have an average density of 1,467.3 for each square mile. The population density was 3,321.4 inhabitants for each square mile.

The gender makeup of the community was 51.70% female and 48.30% male. There were 17.70% of the residents of the community that were at least 65 years old; 27.20% between the ages of 45 and 64; 24.50% between the ages of 25 and 44; 9.40% who were between the ages of 18 and 24, and 21.10% under the age of 18.
