Our Brainerd, St Cloud, St Paul, and Minneapolis MN bankruptcy staff is here to help you through the bankruptcy process, assist our attorneys and keep all of our behind-the-scenes activities running smoothly and on schedule. Like the bankruptcy attorneys, the bankruptcy staff are given continued employment and pay raises on how well they treat clients- not production. They are scored on professionalism, kindness, helpfulness, and how well they deliver exceptional customer service.


Elizabeth Norby

Operations Manager - Email Me
Most people in the office call me Liz. I am the operations manager at Kain & Scott. My sole responsibility is to make the process of filing a bankruptcy at Kain & Scott as soothing and comfortable as possible. They say that "micro managing" is a bad idea, but I don't - especially when it comes to micro managing the client's experience with us - no detail is too small if it makes the process more painless for the client. FUN FACT: When I was 3 years old I was at the zoo when a monkey jumped on the cage right in front of me. It scared me so bad - it made me fiercely afraid of dogs for the next 10 years!?

Stephanie Buerger

Intake Specialist - Email Me
I am a care giver by nature. I have been told by several clients that when they first called Kain & Scott and heard my voice over the phone, they were immediately put at ease and felt comfortable opening up about their financial troubles. I am here to help soothe the pain and make the process as comfortable for the client as possible. FUN FACT: I once went sliding down a hill in the winter time and got stuck under a car.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Lead - Email Me
Clients rely upon me to answer their questions, ease their stress, and help make their lives better. I never take that sacred trust for granted. I get a lot of satisfaction helping clients through the life of their chapter 13 plan and beyond.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Lead - Email Me
Being a good listener is important in this business. I like to hear the client story and then offer reassurance that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. When they say it is darkest before the dawn that is so true - I know - because I am part of that light you see right after the dark. That is why I love what I do. FUN FACT: I was named after the actress Lindsay Wagner better known as "The Bionic Woman"!

What I enjoy about working at Kain & Scott is the absolutely wonderful people, relaxing atmosphere, and the fact that I am constantly learning and growing here.
