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 Plymouth, MN

The history of Plymouth, Minnesota can be traced back to the Pre-Columbian period, about 1400-1500 AD. The area was originally inhabited by the Dakota, who had an encampment on the northern shore of Medicine Lake. Medicine Lake is located within the eastern end of Plymouth, and is surrounded by a small municipality of the same name (Medicine Lake), although that is completely surrounded by the City of Plymouth. The name "Medicine Lake" is derived from the Dakota word "Mdewakan", which translates to "Lake of the Spirit". It was given that name after a Dakota warrior's canoe overturned in the lake, and his body never recovered.

Outside influence came to the area in the 1850's, following the "opening" of the land to American settlers in 1851 with the signing of the Traverse des Sioux Treaty that same year. The first settler to the area was a man named Antoine LaCounte, who settled in the future City of Plymouth in 1852. LaCounte was a guide, explorer, and mail carrier, who learned the area delivering mail and trading goods to Native Americans in exchange for horses. Plymouth began to grow following the construction of a gristmill and other structures on the northwest shore of Parker's Lake in 1855. However, in 1857, when the lake flooded, the operation was moved to nearby Freeport (Wayzata).

As the area became populated, the new settlers decided to organize. The name of the town was decided by the Hennepin County Board of Commissioners, who christened the new settlement "Plymouth". On April 19, 1858, Francis Day, an early Plymouth settler, held a meeting at his house with a group of townspeople to open elections for town offices. One month later, on May 11, 1858, the townspeople voted to change the name of the town to Medicine Lake. However, for reasons unknown, the name was used for only one town meeting before going back to the name Plymouth.

At the onset of the Civil War in 1861, Plymouth paid volunteers $25 apiece to enlist in the military. In 1862, a conflict broke out between white settlers and the Dakota at Fort Ridgely, near New Ulm in South-Central Minnesota, and the settlers of Plymouth Township reacted by forming a militia. During the 1860's, the first signs of development began to appear in Plymouth, with the appearance of churches, schools, and even a few hotels. By 1880, Plymouth Township had a population of 1,074, and took in $667 in taxes annually. Roads were built across Plymouth Township during this era, increasing ease of access to and from Plymouth. At the same time, Medicine Lake was becoming a tourist attraction, with resorts popping up along its shores.

Most residents were farmers by trade, and because of the land-intensive nature of farming, the population leveled off for several decades. In 1920, the township remained pastoral, with a population of 1,275, an increase of only 201 residents from 40 years before. However, the 1920's began for Plymouth a cycle of growth that has not yet abated. By 1950, the township had grown considerably to 5,813 people, and there was talk about changing the form of local government to accommodate the new growth. On May 18, 1955, this finally happened when Plymouth incorporated as a village, ushering in a new wave of growth to Plymouth.

By 1970, Plymouth's population had further increased to 18,077, mostly on the eastern edge of the village, the area nearest to Minneapolis. On February 7, 1974, Plymouth became a statutory city, and growth was occurring at a rapid pace, due to increased automobile accessibility and demand for far-flung suburban living. In By 2000, Plymouth had 65,894 residents, its land nearly filled with development. The city is currently the third-largest suburb in the Minneapolis-St. Paul Metro Area by population. It contains Wayzata High School, the largest secondary school by enrollment in Minnesota, with approximately 3,500 students. Also of note is the large number of cul-de-sacs in the city, at 851, making Plymouth the city with the most of these dead-ends in Minnesota.

In 2008, Plymouth was named the #1 "place to live" in the United States by Money Magazine. The award was given to the city for several reasons, especially those aspects that make the city more self-sufficient and autonomous. The city was credited at the time for having an excellent mix of residential areas, industry, parkland, and schools in particular. The city is still growing to this day, but has slowed because of a sharp reduction in available land. Current population estimates put the city at 72,928 as of 2012, with moderate growth forecasted for the future.

The City of Plymouth scores exceptionally high on educational indicators, and above average on economic indicators when compared to the State of Minnesota. For example, when looking at Plymouth residents aged 25 and older, an astounding 56.4% have Bachelor's degrees or higher in education. Also, an impressive 97.1% of residents have graduated high school, one of the highest rates in the country. Plymouth's high level of education has had a positive effect on the city's thriving economy, and it has poverty levels less than half the state average as well as a median household income of $86,730, over $27,000 higher than the average Minnesota household. Taken together, Plymouth is a truly great place to live, work, and raise children.
