“Whatever your situation, there’s a way forward. Count on it.”

Absurdly high credit card financing rates…insanely high medical bills…deceptive loan practices. It’s no wonder so many people find themselves in debt they can’t get out of. The fact is, many lenders want you in debt, because that’s where they make the most money.

Fortunately, the law can provide relief. Moreover, filing for bankruptcy doesn’t need to be complicated. In fact, for many of our clients, meeting with someone to discuss their financial problems is the hardest part of the process. That’s why, in addition to being among Minnesota’s most experienced bankruptcy attorneys, we’re also the most understanding. Have a simple conversation with us and you’ll discover: We’re here to help, not to judge.

Prescott exists for one reason: to help even the odds against the forces that are preventing you from regaining control of your finances. Remember, the law is on your side, and there’s no shame in taking advantage of its protections. We can show you how. That’s what we do. In fact, it’s all we do. And – this is a promise – we do it well.

Our Attorneys

Understanding his clients’ right to dignity and respect, he made a point of treating everyone as an equal. That conviction, combined with Jack’s mastery of the law, quickly made him one of Minnesota’s busiest bankruptcy attorneys. And as his business flourished, he joined forces with people who treated clients just as he did: with honesty, compassion, and unwavering dedication.

Why You Need An Attorney To File Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy is both a very complex area of law, and very broad area of law. One of the reasons we enjoy practicing bankruptcy law (and why we’ve been in business for so long) is that bankruptcy touches on virtually all other areas of law – real estate, estate planning, contract, ERISA, worker’s compensation, personal injury, property, civil procedure, criminal law, family law, and many others. None of our clients presents a simple, textbook bankruptcy case.
