I filed my first MN Bankruptcy case in February, 1983. In the time since then, I have filed thousands more. I have the knowledge and expertise to resolve any debt problems very quickly and easily.

“If you, or somebody you know, is considering filing for bankruptcy, do yourself a favor, don't bother contacting just any law firm. Contact Kain & Scott!

“These are very kind and helpful people who take the stigma out of bankruptcy and treated me like I wanted to be treated. They understand good people sometimes have hard times. Wes Scott and his team are so nice! Stephanie Buerger has been a savior and responds to my email or phone call questions the same day. It feels like small town service with big city talent and reputation!”

- John S.

“They live up to their motto of being the friendliest lawyers around. The welcome receptionist comes around to greet you and leads you to a private room furnished with snacks and drinks. There is a massage chair in the room and your name is on a sign welcoming you personally to the private space.”

- Brother S.

#1 Voted BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE EXPERIENCE of any bankruptcy law firm in Minnesota.

“Even from the first conversation I had on the phone regarding their services, I knew I was going to choose them. I made an appointment for the following week and was welcomed with no judgement. The whole process was fast and efficient. I worked personally with Misty, Samantha, and Callie but everyone there was extremely helpful when I had questions. There was little to no paperwork and they did most of the work for me. My only regret was not filing sooner!”

- Megan W.

“The staff at Kain & Scott were amazing! They make you feel very comfortable from the first time you step in the door. Everything is well organized and they respond quickly to any questions you have. Shout out to Wes, Calli, Megan, Sarah, and Lindsey you all were great in helping me get my life back. Keep up the good work!!”

- Toby A.

“I have to say I have had the greatest experience filing bankruptcy with Kain&Scott. Kelsey B Quarburg and Jesse A Horoshak were two of the most professional attorneys I have ever worked with. Jesse showed up at my 341 meeting totally prepared. Other attorneys along with their clients weren't. Jesse and I weren’t called up first, so I had the privilege of seeing how this meeting would work. The first two clients and attorneys weren’t prepared at all, they were told by the federal trustees,that they were missing paperwork and information. It took these two clients and attorneys 20 minutes each to get through the process. Jesse had 1 client he was representing before me. The process was flawless, 5 minutes and the process was complete. My meeting took 5 minutes. It proved to me choosing the best law firm matters. Kelsey B Quarburg is the best. She was very professional yet she was also human. She would respond to my emails at odd times of the day and night. She kept me informed every step of the way. Thank you both. Thank you Callie for making sure my paperwork was forwarded and up to date. What a team. Thank you all so much for a job well done ,and I mean this from the bottom of my heart. Once again thank you all,for giving my life back. GOD BLESS YOU ALL ”

- Maurice W.

“Stellar customer service and you have the “how can I help you” staff! You made my future easier to handle and I have so much more confidence especially with your staff behind me. I appreciate all your help and time you spend helping me address my credit. ”

- Nancy N.

“I am very fortunate to have found Kain & Scott. They made my experience fast, friendly and trustworthy. Thank you to Megan R. for being flexible with payment arrangements and really understanding what other people may be going through and how to do what is best for them. 😊 Thank you to Stephanie Buerger as well,for being very welcoming and easy to work with during my initial info gathering. Thank you gals for making my experience a low stress to the point “filer friendly” experience. ”
