Specializing in Personal Bankruptcy & Small Business

Firm Profile

Jeffrey Butwinick, Solo Practitioner

Thank you for visiting my website. After getting my law degree and MBA from the University of Minnesota law school, I was hired by Foley & Lardner, one of the largest and most prestigious firms in the country. I worked in their San Francisco office for six years, representing large financial institutions and multi-national businesses. The experience was great, but I felt like I was on the wrong side of the aisle, representing big businesses – not fighting for the rights of everyday people. After some time, I decided to move back to Minnesota and start a law practice focused on helping regular folks. I enjoy knowing I’m helping to improve the lives of my fellow Minnesotans. Growing up watching Law & Order and old Perry Mason episodes, I was drawn to the idea of helping people facing unfairness, injustice, or difficult circumstances.

Personal Bankruptcy

I’m dedicated to treating you with kindness and compassion, to work on your case to the best of my capabilities, and do whatever I can to fight to protect your rights. I’ve handled hundreds of bankruptcy cases for people just like you. Whether you’re facing wage garnishment, bank levies, creditor lawsuits, harassing phone calls, foreclosure, student loan delinquency, or any other financial difficulty, I am here to help. Give me a call. My initial consultation is always free.

Small Business Counsel

Growing up in the Butwinick Furniture family, I saw firsthand the inner workings of a multi-generational small business. I’ve also owned a multi-location small business myself. Please give me a call to discuss how we can work together.

I look forward to hearing from you.
