About Me

My name is Anne Hansen, and I help people who are being harassed by debt collectors.

I know being a lawyer is not the most popular job in the world, but I
love my job.  I love having my own law firm in St. Paul, and I love
helping Minnesotans deal with their debt collection and other consumer
rights issues.

What is consumer law? It includes things like bankruptcy, debt collection defense, suing
abusive debt collectors who violate the Fair Debt Collection Practices
Act (FDCPA), and other Minnesota state and federal consumer protection

I ONLY represent Minnesota consumers. I do not represent original creditors (banks, credit card companies,
etc.) or debt collectors (third parties who collect debts on behalf of
original creditors, or who purchase defaulted debts and collect in
their own name) under any circumstances.  I do not accept referrals
from so-called debt settlement or debt negotiation companies because in
general I think their interests are adverse to consumers.  If a
company or law firm (especially an out-of-state business) promises to
settle your debts for pennies on the dollar, wipe out your debt or fix
your credit score, think twice before handing over your hard earned
money.  If it sounds too good to be true, it’s probably a scam.

  • Bret G. Nason

    I endorse Anne Hansen. I knew her in law school, where she was a conscientious student and clearly eager to learn. Since graduation, I have interacted with her through NACBA. Her national listserv posts and blog entries show a deep understanding of consumer issues and a passion to fight for her clients. I would recommend Anne to anyone looking for an excellent consumer rights attorney in Minnesota.
