Wesley Scott
I love being a Minnesota bankruptcy attorney because it allows me to give people hope that, together, we can get their lives back. People call us because of business failure (many businesses fail, that is a fact of life), income drop (bad economy or otherwise), divorce (happens to many), medical problems (how can you help that?), and bad financial decisions (we have all made them!). I understand the financial pressures my clients face because I experienced many of these same pressures growing up. I know that most of my clients end up in debt through no fault of their own. I became a bankruptcy attorney to give these people the help and support they need in this time of trouble.

Live in Mankato, MN and Worried About Filing Chapter 7?

Posted by Wesley Scott on June 8

I like to remember what Eleanor Roosevelt used to say—do something that scares you every day. I like this advice but it is easier said than done.
