Why I Became a MN Bankruptcy Attorney
I was born in Minnesota and spent most of my early childhood living in the St. Paul area. I spent my teens and early adult life in Florida, where I received my law degree from the Barry University School of Law in Orlando. After practicing family law for a few years in Florida, I decided to take the Minnesota Bar with the intent of relocating back to my home state. I wanted to move back to Minnesota because I love the people here and missed the Minnesota Nice culture. I am so happy to be back (although I don’t mind traveling down to Florida during winter to visit friends and family)!
When I learned that Kain & Scott was seeking an attorney to practice bankruptcy law at their Brainerd office, I eagerly pursued the opportunity! Kain & Scott has developed a reputation for being a firm that genuinely cares about its clients and one that always strives to provide excellent customer service. I can attest to the fact that they live up to this reputation and I am so thankful to be a part of the Kain & Scott team.
I love practicing bankruptcy law because I provide a service that helps clients improve their lives. People come to us seeking assistance and we work hard to find solutions to their financial situations. There is no better feeling than seeing the joy and relief that our clients experience after they come to us for help.
I look forward to continuing to meet new people and to help them in their journey to achieve their financial goals!
