Posted by Wesley Scott on September 26

 For those of us with high anxiety having someone laugh at you can be devastating. Of Course, as you get older, those sort of things become less irritating to you. In fact, as you get older you become perfectly fine with someone laughing at you or you laughing at yourself. But, can filing bankruptcy be a laughing matter? Of course it can be. I tell my children all of the time, if you are going to get pissed off at everything that goes wrong in your life you will be pissed off a lot.

Read Google Reviews Before Hiring a Minnesota Bankruptcy Lawyer

Posted by Wesley Scott on September 20

 If I had one suggestion to someone looking for a bankruptcy lawyer in Minnesota it is this; read a lot of Google reviews before you call to set up an appointment with the bankruptcy law firm. Don’t read just a few Google reviews, and ignore 5 star reviews with no comments, I don’t believe them. Instead, binge read Google reviews on the Minnesota bankruptcy law firm before setting up an appointment. Do you notice anything troubling? Do you see Google reviews that express the same frustration? If so, move on to the next Minnesota bankruptcy law firm.

You Can Always Tell When Bankruptcy Law Firm Places Profits Over People

Posted by Wesley Scott on September 19

You can always tell when a bankruptcy law firm places profits over people. Their employees are miserable and their clients are unhappy. Don’t believe me? Take a look at a bankruptcy law firm’s Glassdoor reviews and read it for yourself. Sometimes, you need to take these Glassdoor reviews with a grain of salt because, in some cases, there are rumors of employers incentivizing employees to leave rosy Glassdoor reviews.

Who Will Know I filed bankruptcy?

Posted by Wesley Scott on September 17

 A lot of prospective clients want to know, who will know that I filed bankruptcy? This is a good question and one that I would also like probed before I filed bankruptcy. Filing bankruptcy is public information. However, this is not state court it is federal court. You cannot go down to your local courthouse and look up your neighbor’s bankruptcy because it will not be there. Instead, there are federal data bases that hold information on who filed bankruptcy and when. These data bases are password protected and you have to pay or link a credit card to the data base to gain access to it. Who among us is going to go through the trouble of a) finding the data base, b) sign up for an account, and c) link your credit card to the account to gain access to check on whether someone did or did not file bankruptcy?

Filing Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in Duluth MN

Posted by Wesley Scott on September 16

Duluth, Minnesota is a nostalgic place I have been visiting since I was a child. To see the city nestled on the banks sloping down to Lake Superior and the vast lake with the sounds of the waves and seagulls brings back memories.  Sometimes this tranquil setting can be the background to not too tranquil problems like debt. Having debt is not tranquil it is stressful and really painful. It can consume you with mental and physical stress.

Minnesotan's Beware: Many Google Map Listings Are Fraudulent

Posted by Wesley Scott on September 15

Minnesotans looking to file bankruptcy in Minnesota should be aware that many purported Google Map Business Listings are fraudulent. What do I mean by fraudulent? Google Maps are supposed to be accurate and give the consumer accurate information on which merchants are where and when they are open and staffed on Google Maps. The trouble is pernicious businesses dupe Google into believing that the business’s request for a local Google Map Listing is not false but is a real location staffed and open during its stated hours. For example, to obtain a local Google Map Listing for a law firm, the law firm must operate full time at that location (not by appointment only). So if the law firm represents they are open and staffed from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday that is what Google then believes and represents to the public on Google Maps even if it is false. Why would a law firm dupe Google into publishing false advertising? Because it is big business for the law firm.
