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 St Louis Park, MN

When St Louis Park incorporated as a village in 1886 to avoid annexation from Minneapolis, it did so via a petition with only 31 signers. Around the same time, two of the village's landowners and five businessmen from Minneapolis founded the St. Louis Park Land and Improvement Company, the first developer of the city. In 1886 and 1887, the company platted three subdivisions. In 1890, Minneapolis lumber baron Thomas Barlow Walker and a small group of wealthy Minneapolis industrialists founded the Minneapolis Land and Investment Company, and began to develop St. Louis Park for industrial, commercial, and residential purposes. The center of the village was located near the intersection of Wooddale Avenue and the Minneapolis and St. Louis Railroad. By 1890, there were over 600 industrial jobs in the village.

In 1893, however, a financial depression swept the nation, abating the village's growth. Development plans were changed, and Walker and his group of industrialists lost interest in St. Louis Park. In 1899, the world's first concrete, tubular grain elevator was constructed in the village. The elevator still stands, and is on the Historic Landmark Register to ensure that this piece of the city's history remains preserved. At the time that it was built, there was widespread speculation over the dangers of using this type of structure for grain storage, and it was widely criticized. However, the structure turned out to be safe, and became the standard in grain elevator construction.

The City of St. Louis Park developed slowly over its first 60 years. It was not until after the Second World War that the city saw significant growth, quickly developing into a mostly residential, middle-class suburb. With its growing population, the village became a city in 1954. In the 1960's, the character of the city began to change with an influx of Jewish population, many escaping North Minneapolis following the riots of 1968. In more recent years, immigrants from all around the world have made their homes in St. Louis Park, further changing the flavor of the area.

Fully developed by 1960, the landscape of St. Louis Park is decidedly post World War II suburban, although there are many vestiges of earlier development that can be found in the city. Until recently, the city has been fairly uniform in its makeup, consisting generally of low-slung neighborhoods filled with suburban style single-family homes and a scattering of apartment complexes. As land convenient to Minneapolis has grown increasingly scarce, land values in St. Louis Park have subsequently risen, causing a small building frenzy of middle and upper-class apartments, condominiums, shops, and mixed-use development around the city. In recent years, the city has undergone a process of spatial transformation, with diversification of land use and conspicuous vertical growth (taller buildings). Areas around Excelsior Boulevard (an extension of Lake Street), and those south of Highway 7 have seen the majority of recent development in the city, but there is significant development under way in the vicinity of Cedar Lake Road as well.

The new housing units in Saint Louis Park are currently being built on vacated industrial lands and former government-owned buildings such as schools that have outlived their use. The new developments consist mainly of mid-rise apartment buildings, generally 5-6 stories in height. The city has long had significant residential development on its eastern boundary near Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis, but new developments have spread the "built-up" area across St. Louis Park in various pockets. St. Louis Park is thus a city in transition, a transition taking place through numerous development projects, which are in turn changing the face of the city. Also, because of its close proximity to downtown Minneapolis and subsequently high rental demand, Saint Louis Park has been chosen as a promising real estate investment by developers. Many of the new units added have been upper-income apartments, and it seems that this is the demographic that the city is pursuing.

Amongst the development projects are plans for two new fire stations in the city, a set of projects meant to strengthen the public infrastructure. There are a few senior-friendly apartment buildings going up around the city, to help meet demand from an aging population. Once a relatively bland suburban community, St. Louis Park is gaining a certain sense of urbanity, one that is reinforced by each new development project that goes on in the city. There are current development projects for commercial and industrial purposes as well, but not nearly as many as the number of residential projects in progress in the city.
