• Spectacular!

    I liked your fast, friendly service. You were all knowledgeable in the area of bankruptcy. Your treatment of me as a client was spectacular! You were great at promptly responding to my questions and concerns. I loved that you provided courteous and quick responses to all my questions.
  • Highly Recommended!

    I have worked with Seth and he is the utmost professional in how he works with his clients. If you need an attorney you can trust I would highly recommend the Law Office of Seth Hanson.
  • Very Professional.

    Everyone was very professional and efficient. Seth, and everyone that I had contact with were very knowledgeable. I was very pleased with how we were treated by his staff. My questions were always answered promptly. I was very pleased with the service I received and would not hesitate to refer someone to your firm.
  • Non-judgmental.

    You were very open and answered all of my questions. You never made me feel like I was asking a dumb question. I was comfortable with your knowledge of the law. It was hard for me to make this decision to move forward in my life. Everyone was friendly to me and respectful. Non-judgmental. Every question I asked was answered promptly and appropriately. I would recommend you.
  • More Than Expected!

    I found the firm's representation to be more than what I expected. I was always kept in the loop, all my questions were answered (whether or not I asked more than once the same question), and I felt completely supported by the firm staff when going through this (at times) scary ordeal. Thank you again.
  • Very Impressed!

    I liked that you had very friendly, caring staff. You were all very knowledgeable. Your treatment towards me was excellent and you quickly responded to all my concerns. If a friend asked of your overall impression, I would say that we were very impressed and we would recommend you to them.

Personal Finance Education

Currently, only 17 states require personal finance to be taught in schools. Finances play a massive roll in our everyday lives and from the age of 18, we are thrust into the world with very little knowledge of how to succeed. We are thrown into society armed with the knowledge of how to calculate the area of a triangle, but we don’t understand the importance of interest rates on credit cards and loans or budgeting basics.

Some argue that the responsibility of personal finance should start with parents. In many ways this is true. Parents can teach the value of work and money through chores and allowances. Parents can also teach their children the importance of saving for a rainy day. But when you look at the statistics of how today’s adults are doing, it only proves the point that we should be supplementing financial literacy with formalized education. At this time 33% of Americans do not have any retirement savings and half of Americans don’t have the cash to cover a $400.00 emergency.

Free Courses

Until that fine day when personal finance is added to our public-school curriculum, there are a few free online personal finance courses that are available to those who are interested in expanding their own knowledge. The following are free online courses that are open to the public.

Purdue University’s Planning for a Secure Retirement Course
