I would highly recommend Tim Theisen
I had worked with another attorney before coming to see Tim. The other attorney was very aggressive and rude. I mostly talked to some one in his office and not the attorney himself. I got very little information and resistance to asking questions. It took a long time and was never completed. I left that office and was referred to Tim by a friend. The difference was like night and day. He spent time explaining things to me in great detail. I met with him directly and he answered all my questions. He was patient and kind. He was not judgmental and was sensitive to my situation. I needed to keep my car for work and he was able to do that. My job requires that I have a car. The stress had been overwhelming. My problems started with health issues and I needed to reduce my hours at work. My case was processed faster than I expected. Once it was done, I felt like I could breath again. A huge weight had been lifted. Now I can begin working on resolving my health issues. Making the decision to file was a hard decision, but Tim made it easier. He is efficient, thorough, knowledgeable and supportive.

Professional, knowledgeable and all around great attorney!
Awesome experience from beginning to end. I had an intimidating amount of IRS debt, and no idea how to handle it. The thought of taking on the IRS by myself gave me anxiety. I had spoken with a few “settle your tax debt for pennies on the dollar” people, and not only were they extremely expensive, I felt like they were over promising and being unrealistic (Aka pay us $4k and the IRS will accept a settlement of $250 even though you own property with equity - not realistic). Tim walked me through the entire process, and was confident and knowledgeable, and told me exactly not only what filing chapter 7 could do for my situation - but what it couldn’t do. I appreciated the honesty, and would refer him and his assistant, Amy, to anyone thinking about filing for bankruptcy.

George G Review
If you are considering bankruptcy or family law, I would highly recommend Tim Theisen! He has been working vigilantly on my case and I am extremely satisfied with his work! He actually took the time to have a conference call with my on this busy holiday week! This shows how much he cares about his work and clients!

Amazingly Helpful
I’ll try to keep this brief, but if anybody is looking to hire Tim Theisen, don’t hesitate. He helped me so much by answering every question I had, and I had a lot of them, and helped me through every step of the bankruptcy process. He made it easy for me, and I couldn’t have asked for anything more. Thank you sir!

I highly recommend Tim
I don’t usually write reviews but if this helps one person I will be happy. I tried debt consolidation for 6 months and was getting collection calls and letters daily. I decided to look into bankruptcy and tried a different law firm first and the man missed my appt after they had already rescheduled once. I was frustrated so I went online and found Tim Theisen and gave him a call. After our first meeting, I felt so comfortable with him and felt better about my future. He answered all my questions and laid out everything he would need, what would happen during the process and how long it would take. He is just an all around nice guy and Amy at the office is amazing too. He sticks with you til the end. I can’t thank them enough! PS. They didn’t have any hidden fees either or anything that put up a red flag.

Amazing
I was very scared going into filing Chapter 7. I was referred by my cousin, who is a lawyer. He was great and helped me get through the whole process, while explaining the steps to help me better understand.

I had to file Bankruptcy unexpectedly.
I need to tell people how working with Tim with my Bankruptcy was awesome. I was laid off unexpectedly from a company in Anoka that used to be the place to work you could rely on them well no more. Totally turned my life upside down and had to file it was hard I worked hard to build my credit and poof gone. I was so upset to have to do this But Tim and his office manager Amy were great they worked with me and were honest and by my side thru the entire process. I recommend Tim to anyone. I inquired with some attorneys that had commercials or big ads in the phone book but shied away from them because the didn't quote a price they just said well maybe this much etc. Tim was straight up and if you did your part it all went well.

What a relief!
I recently required the services of Tim Theisen. He made my legal process easy for me to understand, He preceded in a timely manner, he and his assistant Amy guided me through all the paperwork, helped make the whole ordeal a lot less painful and embarrassing. He is truly a kind person who is good at his job and cares about his clients. I would defiantly recommend him to any of my friends and family who would need his services. Thank you so much Tim and Amy, I feel like the weight of a 5 year old rock has been lifted off my shoulders and I have a new start. Gin

Highly Recommended
Tim Theisen came highly recommended to me by a close family friend. I would recommend him to anyone who is thinking about going through the bankruptcy process. At first I was scared, nervous, and ashamed of the situation I got myself into. I didn't want to admit that I was drowning in debt. After my first initial meeting with Tim, my fears were calmed. Tim is extremely knowledgeable. He was able to answer all of my questions and then some. Even his front office staff, Amy in particular, was helpful. I would recommend Tim Theisen to anyone! Don't wait to call!!

Dont Suffer any longer, call Tim today!!!!!
My husband and I were very impressed with attorney Timothy Theisen, of the Law offices of Timothy C. Theisen, P.A. While researching attorneys, we found Timothy came highly recommended, a true expert in his field. Before finding Tim, were drowning in monthly bills, debt collectors were calling and harassing us, our life was very stressful. Tim made our Chapter 7 Bankruptcy experience simple and hassle free. He was always available when we needed to ask questions. He exceeded all of our expectations. I am pleased to recommend Timothy if you are looking for a Bankruptcy attorney. I invite you to call him today, you will be happy you did! We can now answer the phone without the fear of debt collector harrassment. Life its good!!!

Do yourself a favor and call Tim Theisen
Tim is the consummate professional without making you feel uncomfortable. We have used him on more than one occasion for family law and bankruptcy and he has always made the process easy. He has become someone we can trust and will go to again for similar legal issues we may have. Tim, I can't thank you enough for all that you have done for me in the past and will not hesitate to call you again should the need arise!

After years of uncertainty and fear, everything was resolved in a matter of months
The idea of filing bankruptcy was very distressing. It is full of many emotions - fear, sense of failure, shame and regret. I had spent 2-3 years trying to work out a reasonable plan with the banks - with out success. I finally decided to meet with an attorney. I spent another 2 years in limbo and uncertainty. Then I went along with a friend, for support, to her first meeting with Tim. The difference was quite astonishing. She met with Tim and not support staff. The information he provided in one meeting was more than I received in 2 years working with the other attorney. I knew I had to switch. At the other office, you felt as if it was a bother or inconvenient to answer questions. At times the staff was actually rude. Not so with Tim and his office. Questions were answered without condemnation. Everything was explained thoroughly. I was treated with respect. Things were done extremely promptly. I needed a means test done, I met with Tim and he went through it with me. He explained everything. Again I learned things that I hadn't been told by the other lawyer. At the other office, the means test had been done by the paralegal with no input from me and no explanation given. The difference was between success and failure. In general with the first lawyer, I never knew what was going on and I felt I couldn't ask any questions. If things didn't go right I was treated rudely and actually yelled at. When I switched to Tim, things went quickly and smoothly, and it was done in a few short months. I finally could move forward with my life. I have since called with questions and Tim generously answers then for me. I would highly recommend Tim Theisen.

My only regret is that I didn't file bankruptcy sooner.
Tim and Amy did any amazing job handling my bankruptcy. I walked in to Tim's office with so much shame, fear and trepidation from years of debt that had haunted me after I lost my job and as a result was no longer able to keep up with my financial obligations. I was so afraid to take that "first step" to seek legal help that I put it off for 3-4 years. I regret that now - I wish I had acted sooner! But I am so grateful for the thorough and professional manner in which everything was handled. That was not more evident than when I sat on my court date waiting for my appointed time in front of the judge and overheard the conversations between several clients and their bankruptcy lawyers panicking over missing papers and hearing "what do you mean we didn't get these papers and documents filed, where are they? They're supposed to be reviewed by the judge today. These were all supposed to be in your file." I was incredulous that anyone could appear for their hearing before the bankruptcy judge without all the necessary documentation they needed to proceed and run a huge risk of having their case dismissed by the judge that day. Tim and Amy made sure every 'i" was dotted and every "t" was crossed long before we met at the courtroom for our court date. There were no unpleasant surprises that day for me! Everything was exactly as it needed to be and every document I needed was in Tim's briefcase. All I can say is, be very careful who you choose to represent you! If you want someone highly qualified and organized you want Tim Theisen. If you want to "shop around" then you take your chances on obtaining someone who doesn't care enough about you personally to see you through one of the most difficult legal actions you might ever have to take on. Someone who may be unqualified to represent you. I couldn't be happier now. I can answer my phone again when it rings! I don't have to dread having someone come up to my house to serve me with papers for a debt I couldn't repay. I have a humongous burden that has been lifted from my shoulders that weighed me down for too many years.

I have my dignity back
After going through a bad divorce and the sale of my business, I was left with an enormous amount of debt. I dreaded going to the mail box as well as answering unknown phone numbers. I was embarrassed about my situation and did not know where to turn. I called a few different bankrutpcy lawyers and they all made me feel like a loser for the situation I was in. I saw Tim's website and decided to call. The other lawers I had called took hours, even days to get back to me. Tim called me back within the hour. He let me know that bad things happen to good people, and that there was nothing to be embarrassed about. Tim and his firm handled my bankruptcy from start to finish and treated me like a "person". With Tim's help and counsel I have raised my credit score over 200 points and I have my dignity back, as well as my financial future. If you are drowning in debt and feel like there is nothing you can do, call Tim Theisen. He gave me my future back, and he can do the same for you.
