Our Firm and Our Approach

We know our business. In 1951, attorney Jack Prescott filed his first bankruptcy petition on behalf of a client. In 1975, seeing the growing need that Minnesota families and small businesses had for better legal service in this area, Jack made the decision to concentrate his practice solely on bankruptcy. In 1981, Dick Pearson began practicing in bankruptcy law and joined the firm in 1983. Today, over 70,000 successful bankruptcy petitions later, we remain just as committed to this work.

We know Minnesota. Bankruptcy is governed by federal laws that make the general rules and process relatively the same from one state to the next. Because of that, many national bankruptcy law firms have started looking for business everywhere, including Minnesota. While these firms may be able to learn our state's specific rules without too much trouble, they will never be able to match our local knowledge or the credibility our lawyers have established with the bankruptcy judges, trustees and creditors' attorneys.

We know how to treat people. One of our biggest sources of new business has always been other law firms. In short, many of the people we've helped over the years have called us because the first law firm they went to for help didn't treat them right. At this law firm, no one is going to look down on you or make you feel like a moral failure or scold you — for anything. Simply put, we'll treat you the way we'd want to be treated ourselves.
