Eden Prairie Bankruptcy & Social Security Disability

Our Practice Areas


Hennipen County, MN


Stepping into Hoglund Law’s Eden Prairie office means finding a bankruptcy lawyer armed with Chapter 7, Chapter 13, and Debt Settlement knowledge capable of assisting you with all of your credit counseling needs. Offering free consultations and zero upfront fees, Hoglund Law makes a process that may appear scary transform into one that jumpstarts the financially free future you so desperately crave. We guide you through the Bankruptcy Code, so you can get a fresh start.


After filing a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, you will be granted an automatic stay that prevents creditors from performing certain legal actions and stops many of their collection calls. The palpable relief our clients feel is a large reason we enjoy what we do at Hoglund law. However, not all debt will be discharged in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Child support, student loans, and other debts not qualifying for discharge will still need to be paid while your medical bills, credit card debts, and other unsecured debts will be wiped away.

This is why this fresh start isn’t the right choice for everyone. Contacting a qualified Bankruptcy Lawyer to determine whether this is the correct path for you is not only an essential step but a free one when you take advantage of a free consultation with Hoglund Law. Providing you with an opinion you can trust will help ease the uncertainty that accompanies this form of debt relief, giving you every confidence moving—or not moving—forward with bankruptcy proceedings.


You will also be granted an automatic stay when you file a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, alleviating creditor calls and the weight of an unstable financial situation. However, unlike a Chapter 7 filing, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy requires you to make payments on your debt over the course of a three to five-year plan. Once the plan has concluded, any remaining qualified debts will be discharged, and you will be fully launched into the fresh start that you earned.

The benefits of filing chapter 13 include the chance to reorganize your debts, receive protection from the bankruptcy court, and protect your non-exempt assets—making it the ideal solution for some of our clients. However, this solution isn’t the only one available, and might not be the right one for you. The best way to determine your best path is to meet with a qualified and experienced bankruptcy attorney, such as the ones you will find at our Eden Prairie offices.


Sometimes going through complex bankruptcy proceedings isn’t the right choice for our clients. When this is the case, we recommend debt settlement as a method of debt relief better suited to obtaining their financially stable future.

Essentially, Debt Settlement is a process of negotiation whereby debtors legally agree to pay a reduced amount of their debt. The reason creditors agree to this is quite simple: it’s better than receiving nothing. They fear, when faced with an experienced office such as ours that the client in question is on the verge of buckling under their debt. The possible threat of bankruptcy sends them scrambling to the negotiation table, where we will be able to get you the best deal to secure a more financially stable future.

Having provided residents of Eden Prairie with legal assistance through countless Bankruptcy Cases, we know when Debt Settlement is the right path and are prepared to help you determine if this is your path forward.

What is Social Security Disability

The Social Security Disability system is in place to provide aid to qualifying individuals, protecting workers and their families against financial instability caused by disability or death.  You may fall into the category of Social Security Disability Insurance, known as SSDI, or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). SSDI administers aid via monthly checks to those who have worked long enough and have contributed to the system by paying social security taxes. On the other hand, SSI is granted based on financial need.

Why Are People Denied Social Security Disability

Due to the specific standards the Social Security Administration adheres to, there is a multitude of reasons you may have been denied. Sometimes you just need more medical records that prove the existence of a condition that inhibits your ability to participate in the workforce. Furthermore, sometimes the Social Security Administration fails to fully take all conditions into consideration. In some cases, getting approved is as easy as appealing your initial decision.

However, some situations will disqualify you from receiving benefits including drug use, short term disability, or a criminal record. To determine the best course of action in obtaining the benefits you deserve for financial relief, schedule a free consultation to discuss your case with one of our Social Security Disability lawyers.

How to apply for Social Security Benefits in Eden Prairie

Filing can be done at your nearest social security office located at 6161 American Blvd W Suite 1000, Bloomington, MN 55438, or by filing online. Filing requires you provide information about any hospitals, doctors, or clients that have treated you, a list of all prescription medication you have taken for your condition, names of the doctors prescribing you these medications, and your employment history for the past 15 years. Be sure to come prepared to provide this information and spend 25 minutes to an hour and a half in the office.

If you do not have all of the listed documentation in hand, you can still file. It is possible to file and then add information to your case as you acquire it. Heading to your nearest Social Security Administration office places you one step closer to your first check.
