If you live in Bloomington, Minnesota and are considering filing a bankruptcy this is a lesson in buyer beware! At Kain & Scott our Bloomington Bankruptcy Lawyers have seen several bankruptcy services advertised on park benches, back pages of newspapers, and from out of state companies. Take our word for it, here’s the main thing you need to watch out for…

Out Of State Bankruptcy Services

Do not take phone calls or solicitations from out of state companies pedaling bankruptcy services in Minnesota. One company, in particular, tries to solicit your bankruptcy case by referring you back to a Bloomington Bankruptcy Attorney? What the nature of the kickbacks are between the out of state company and these local “bankruptcy” lawyers is unclear.

What I do know is many of these local “bankruptcy” lawyers are not the most experienced bankruptcy lawyers in Minnesota. Many of these local “bankruptcy” lawyers would not have many cases except for the referral of cases to them by this out of state company.

So why would you allow yourself to be sold a “Bloomington Bankruptcy Attorney” by an out of state company who then refers you back to Bloomington Minnesota Bankruptcy Attorneys with not the highest level of bankruptcy experience? We wonder the same thing. Don’t be taken in by their sales pitches. I hate to say it but there are companies who prey on people who are vulnerable and suffering from overwhelming debt. There are many instances where filing bankruptcy is not the best option.

What’s the point of this blog? Never take phone calls from out of state companies trying to “help” you with bankruptcy in Minnesota. Instead, hire a Bloomington, Minnesota based Bankruptcy Law Firm.


There is one seasoned Bloomington Bankruptcy Law Firm in Minnesota that can help you with any your Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy issues and that is Kain & Scott, P.A. When the time is right, or when you are ready, reach out us. You will be glad you did!
