At Kain + Henehan we know meeting with a lawyer is intimidating. Facing the prospects of bankruptcy can be scary enough, meeting with us should not be. Bill + Margaret are here to make you comfortable from the very first phone call. We will lay out your options and make sure you understand what is best for you.
We would love to meet with you in a way that is most comfortable for you. Our appointments are by phone, in person or connect by video (like Zoom or FaceTime). Whatever makes you most comfortable. And the consultation is free, no strings attached, no pressure to make any decision.
Bill Kain + Margaret Henehan worked together for over 5 years at the Kain & Scott law firm. During that time we filed hundreds of chapter 7 and chapter 13 cases. We have seen about every twist and turn that can come in filing bankruptcy. We use this experience to guide clients down the path of getting control of their finances.
I was born and raised in St. Cloud, and I’ve been a lifelong resident. I received my undergraduate degree from Saint John’s University and my law degree from the University of Minnesota Law School.
I have practiced law since 1982.
I filed my first bankruptcy case in 1983, and since that first filing I have been active in debtor bankruptcy work. Since 2006, I have focused my practice exclusively in bankruptcy.
I find my bankruptcy practice to be extremely rewarding; it is humbling and gratifying to be able to assist people in resolving their financial problems - having clients get a fresh start financially makes such a positive difference in their lives!
I’ve been lucky enough to be a presenter on how bankruptcy interacts with marriage dissolution issues at legal seminars. I spent six years, from 2004 through 2010 as an adjunct professor of business law at St. Cloud State University.
My wife and I are proud of our three adult children and we think our five grandchildren are wonderfully smart and kind and we love them a lot.
Born and raised in St. Paul, Minnesota, I’ve never strayed far, now living just over the river in South Minneapolis. I attended University of St. Thomas for my undergrad and William Mitchell College of Law for my law degree. Since graduating law school in 2013 I have only practiced in bankruptcy law and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I have found this area of practice to be extremely fulfilling. It’s one of the few areas of law where we as attorneys can get results from the courts in a very short time frame for our clients. When creditors are bothering you, or you are afraid that you might lose your home, it’s really nice to resolve things quickly.
People find themselves in need of a bankruptcy for a lot of reasons, and I can personally relate to quite a few of them. I have struggled with student loan payments. I have had unforeseen large medical debt. I have been surprised at what life has thrown my way. No one is immune to financial struggles no matter how well they can prepare. I get it.
