Kain-Scott-MN-Bankruptcy-Lawyers-Values.jpgHave you ever wondered about which law firm is Minnesota oldest bankruptcy law firm? Ok, probably not! But, if you are looking to file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy in Minnesota, age matters. Why? There is a reason why they call it the “practice” of law right? Will a law firm that started in 1995 have more experience or a law firm that started in 1972?

Kain & Scott is recognized as Minnesota’s oldest bankruptcy law firm. Kain & Scott started in 1972 and hasn’t stopped helping Minnesotans get their lives back ever since! There is something about being the oldest Minnesota bankruptcy law firm that carries with it responsibility too. Being the oldest bankruptcy law firm in Minnesota, we have a responsibility to lead the way in bankruptcy and set the example for others.

Since our humble beginnings in 1972, we have never stopped making the process of filing bankruptcy more comfortable and more soothing to our guests who suffer from overwhelming debt. Today, we are know as Minnesota’s nicest bankruptcy law firm guaranteed or 100% off your fees!

How did we acquire such a reputation? By living our core values.


Yes, we aimed to be the most helpful Bankruptcy Law Firm in Minnesota. What does this mean? For one thing, when we sign up our guests we never send them home with a large pile of worksheets to fill out. That would not be helpful. Instead, we do most of the work while our guests relax.

We also pull your asset report and credit report as well. When you hire Kain & Scott, we mean it when we say, We don’t judge you, we HELP you get your life back! Solving problems for our guests is what we do. When our guests call us, we spend the time necessary to solve their question or problem. We never send you to another firm to resolve a routine bankruptcy issue.

If you live in Monticello, Minnesota, or anywhere else in Minnesota, and you are struggling from overwhelming debt, and you are looking for a firm to help you get your life back, I think you just did!

When I hire a professional, I expect them to be helpful and to know their craft well. If I start to doubt that you know what you are doing, I move onto someone who does their craft well. At the end of the day, I don’t have time to train someone else in on my case. Sorry.

At Kain & Scott, helping you get your life back means helping you 1) get rid of debt and 2) repairing your credit. Kain & Scott is Minnesota’s only bankruptcy law firm to help you 1) get rid of debt and 2) repair your credit with our unique program.


One of Kain & Scott’s core values is kindness. Kindness not just to our guests, but each other, and third parties. You could be our janitor and we treat you like a rock star! Life is amazingly humbling. I don’t have time for people who are not kind to others. At Kain & Scott, we are all graded, in part, on how kind we are to our guests, each other, and third parties. You could be the highest producing lawyer at Kain & Scott and still get fired.

Different? Yes. Good for our guests? Absolutely! There are no snot nosed lawyers looking down at you at Kain & Scott. We hear the horror stories all the time from our guests who have gone to other bankruptcy lawyers and the lawyer was talking down to our guest. The guest could see it, and feel it. If you don’t like being treated well, Kain & Scott is not the place for you!


Folks, we have heard it all. I have had guests tell me that the lawyer they met with fell asleep at the initial consult! Oh my goodness! My guests (I say my guests because they certainly did not hire him!) Quietly got up and left. Later, the lawyer actually had the nerve to call them and ask them if they are going to hire him!? Yikes!

While that is extreme, we know, the other horror stories are endless. Most of the time it deals with lawyers who are very condescending in their tone and mannerisms.

We have even heard of lawyers meeting with people in a one room office with a picnic table. Or how about this- you meet with the lawyer at the lawyer’s home- While the dog is licking your leg and other parts? Do you think this is professional? Or, do you think it’s professional to meet someone in a dingy office location at night and you have to stand in the hallway waiting for your meeting with the lawyer? We cringe at hearing these stories. There is a better way.

At Kain & Scott, our people are top notch professionals. We have 8 convenient and professional locations in Minnesota. All of our locations are highly professional and tastefully decorated and staffed. If you are a victim of unprofessional behavior and locations, give us a call.


Have you ever called someone or went in somewhere and were treated like a rock star? You know the feeling right? Now, have you ever signed up somewhere, when you received that kind of treatment, only to get the “B” squad after you signed up? You felt betrayed didn’t you? I would.

At Kain & Scott, our team is hired, fired, punished, and rewarded, based on how well they treat you, our guest- period! They are not given pay raises based on the number cases filed, or whether they produced the most income. They are rewarded based on how well they treat you. Different? We think so! There is a reason we are Minnesota’s highest google reviewed bankruptcy law firm!

Our guests’ words in these reviews speak for themselves. We are honored by their words and never take them for granted.
