Alyssa began practicing bankruptcy in the Fall of 2015 and later joined Hoglund, Chwialowski & Mrozik as an associate attorney. Her practice is focused on Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy exclusively, where she regularly advocates for her clients in US Bankruptcy Court for the District of Minnesota. Alyssa is an active member in the Bankruptcy Law Section of the Minnesota State Bar and served as Chair of the section’s Consumer Subcommittee for the year of 2017-2018.
Alyssa developed a strong interest in Chapter 13 representation early in her career and often finds herself getting excited about the possibilities and opportunities it offers to the clients she meets with. She is especially passionate about finding legal solutions that help to preserve the things that her clients value most.
Alyssa offers kind and compassionate representation free of judgment. Her work motto is “bankruptcy is here when life happens.” She provides assurance to her clients, often explaining that people never plan to end up here. Instead, they end up here when life happens… and sometimes a lot life happens at a very fast speed. Bankruptcy isn’t the end of the road, it is an awesome tool allows us chance to breathe and hit the pause or reset button so that we can focus on the things that really matter during hard times.
Alyssa earned her undergraduate degree from Minnesota State University, Mankato, where she double majored in Political Science and Law Enforcement. She decided to pursue her legal degree out-of-state, through the University of South Dakota, being drawn by the small class sizes and value. She spent her last year of law School as a visiting student at Hamline University’s Health Law Institute. While this focused learning path may seem irrelevant to her current practice, she credits much of her professional development and growth in compassion to this experience.
Since graduating from law school, Alyssa has donated hundreds of hours to local legal service organizations where she represented and advocated for low income individuals and individuals with disabilities.
When Alyssa is not in the office, she is out looking for new adventures with friends and family. She enjoys kayaking, backpacking, lake life and improving her tumbling skills. Alyssa also finds joy in volunteering with non-profit organizations that work to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health issues and barriers in receiving help.
