Kain & Scott Bankruptcy Firm Guarantees Our Fees

Posted by Wesley Scott on November 12

It should not be surprising to be treated with common decency. One would think that it would be obvious that guests and clients are respected when they enter an establishment. It should be, but in many cases, it is not. We may forgive this at the grocery store or other retail establishments where interactions are few and fleeting. But we often hear our clients have been treated poorly at other bankruptcy law firms and we find this absolutely unacceptable.

The Ease and Convenience of Kain & Scott!

Posted by Wesley Scott on November 11

Those who struggle with overwhelming debt often make many sacrifices. They work overtime. They take a second job. They pick up extra shifts. They miss out on spending time with family and with friends. Life’s enjoyments are replaced with constant anxiety and worry. Debt is stressful and never takes a day off. So how can anyone expect those who are already overwhelmed by bills, creditors, and notices to call out from work to meet with a bankruptcy attorney? It is ridiculous and unrealistic to expect anyone who is already under such pressure to simply be able to take time off whenever the mood strikes!

How to Spot and Stop Creditor Harassment

Posted by Wesley Scott on November 9

When you are suffering from overwhelming debt, the ring of a phone or the opening of your mailbox can turn your stomach. Any phone call or letter could be from a creditor, a creditor’s collection agency, their attorney, or even all three! Any notice could be a summons or judgment. Our clients have lived in fear of creditor harassment –never knowing what lengths creditors may go to in order to try to collect.

A Minnesota Bankruptcy is Worth the Wait

Posted by Wesley Scott on November 6

Some things you just want to be over and with and never have to think about again! A trip to the doctor’s for a colonoscopy, a Disney vacation with your in-laws and a toddler who just discovered they are terrified of mice, and filing for bankruptcy.

If you live in Minnesota and you are suffering from overwhelming debt, you get the stress of debt. Debt is suffocating and can make a good day really bad.

Get the Best Possible Fresh Start, at Kain & Scott

Posted by Wesley Scott on October 29

I am reminded often of how we go the distance with clients at Kain & Scott. Part of our job at Kain & Scott is to make sure the client has the best fresh start possible. Sometimes that means bringing claims on behalf of the client without charging the client. In fact, at Kain & Scott, we often bring objections, responses, and motions and then attend the hearings on behalf of the client all for free. Why do we do this? Because it is the right thing to do. Sometimes these claims would cost the client far more in attorney’s fees than they are worth pursuing. I think the creditors and trustees often know this so these claims remain just that, claims.

Beware of This if You Plan to File Bankruptcy in Minnesota

Posted by Wesley Scott on October 28

 If you are looking to file bankruptcy in Minnesota you must be aware of who is marketing to you. For, example, if you call someone who is out of state, tread very carefully. Why? I have known some of these entities to have you sign contracts stating that they will immediately begin work and charge you by the hour. So, if you call them, they bill you. If you email them, they bill you. The reason why this is so important is if you pay 2k for bankruptcy but decide not to file the bankruptcy, you will not receive a full refund of your fees.
