It feels like small town service with big city talent and reputation!”

“I have to say I have had the greatest experience filing bankruptcy with Kain&Scott. Kelsey B Quarburg and Jesse A Horoshak were two of the most professional attorneys I have ever worked with. Jesse showed up at my 341 meeting totally prepared. Other attorneys along with their clients weren't. Jesse and I weren’t called up first, so I had the privilege of seeing how this meeting would work. The first two clients and attorneys weren’t prepared at all, they were told by the federal trustees,that they were missing paperwork and information. It took these two clients and attorneys 20 minutes each to get through the process. Jesse had 1 client he was representing before me. The process was flawless, 5 minutes and the process was complete. My meeting took 5 minutes. It proved to me choosing the best law firm matters. Kelsey B Quarburg is the best. She was very professional yet she was also human. She would respond to my emails at odd times of the day and night. She kept me informed every step of the way. Thank you both. Thank you Callie for making sure my paperwork was forwarded and up to date. What a team. Thank you all so much for a job well done ,and I mean this from the bottom of my heart. Once again thank you all,for giving my life back. GOD BLESS YOU ALL ”
