If you see reference to Winn Law Group on any documents, it is now likely be handled by Gurstel Law Firm.

In a debt collector lawsuit, you must take action or risk a default judgment against you.

The good news is that a Gurstel Law Firm or Winn Law Group settlement is a very viable option in many cases. For instance, our client owed a $21,914.46 debt to Wells Fargo in credit card debt. She stopped making payments and went delinquent after she unexpectedly lost her job. Wells Fargo eventually sold the debt to Cavalry Portfolio Services. They tried to collect the debt for about 6 months. When they couldn’t, the account got referred to the Winn Law Group to file a lawsuit against our client. Once our client got served with the lawsuit, we stepped in to negotiate a debt settlement. The Winn Law Group initially demanded $17,532.00 to settle the account. After explaining our client’s hardships and inability to pay that amount, they agreed to accept $7,000.00 to settle this account. We saved our client $14,914.46 on this debt (approximately 68% of the balance claimed due). Visit our website to learn more about our client debt relief success stories.

If these facts cannot be proven, then there is a good chance your lawsuit will be dismissed. If the lawsuit is valid, then it’s time to try to negotiate a settlement with Gurstel Law Firm.

Cavalry SPV I, LLC or Cavalry Portfolio Services would rather save the court related costs of suiting you and receive SOME payment from you – then have you declare bankruptcy and receive nothing.
Our client owed Cavalry Portfolio Services $14,273.37. He had never heard of Cavalry before and denied owing a debt to them. Upon further investigation, we determined that this debt originally belonged to Chase Bank, which the client recalled as an old creditor that hadn’t been paid. The Winn Law Group threatened to file suit against our client if we were unable to reach a settlement. We submitted a lump sum offer of $5,000.00 to settle this debt. The Winn Law Group accepted the offer as full settlement of the account. We saved our client $9,273.37 (approximately 65% of the balance claimed due).
