  • Contacting your friends, family members, or coworkers about your debt.
  • Refusing to validate your debt.
  • Contacting you despite receiving a Cease and Desist Letter.

Respond quickly to a debt collection lawsuit

What if you’ve been sued over past debt? You need to file an Answer with the court to communicate your willingness to fight the lawsuit. SoloSuit can help you draft an Answer and then file it with the court.

Act quickly, as some jurisdictions give you a window of only two weeks to respond, after which a default judgment will be rendered in favor of Grant and Weber. Should this happen, you’ll lose the chance to negotiate a lower settlement, and it’s also possible for Grant and Weber to receive additional legal fees or debt collection fees.

Grant & Weber has an in-house legal team that handles debt collection lawsuits, but the company always employs third party lawyers from its nationwide network of experienced credit union collection focused attorneys.

Ask Grant and Weber to validate your debt

How do you know if the debt is really yours? Use SoloSuit to send a Debt Validation Letter to Grant and Weber. This letter will ask for such information as:

  • The identity of your original creditor.
  • The date and amount of the original debt.
  • Any payment history.
  • The age of the debt.
  • Proof that connects you to that debt.

If Grant and Weber cannot provide you with this information, you stand a better chance of fighting the lawsuit in court — or the company may give up on collecting the debt altogether. Otherwise, your better option will be to negotiate a lower settlement.

Settle your debt with Grant and Weber

Most debt collectors are more than willing to accept a lower payment rather than endure a lengthy legal process. And that’s good news since it means you can resolve your debt for less than the original amount. Here’s how the process works.

Agree to pay 60% of the original amount

Start by using SoloSettle to offer 60% of the original amount. Grant and Weber may not accept this first offer, but you’ll at least start the negotiation process and work together to come to a mutual agreement.

Let’s look at an example.

Example: Justin didn’t realize that his debt had gotten so out of control until he learned that he was being sued by Grant and Weber. Initially, he panicked — until a friend directed him to SoloSuit. Justin was surprised at how easy it was to file an Answer, which gave him time to verify the debt. Next, Justin used SoloSettle to start negotiating a settlement. Grant and Weber declined Justin’s initial offer to pay 60% of his debt and made a counteroffer of 70%. Justin declined this counteroffer, but he was pleased when Grant and Weber agreed to a settlement of 65%.

Get a settlement agreement in writing

Always get your final debt settlement agreement in writing. The same applies to any communication with Grant and Weber, including emails. Documentation will prevent dishonest debt collectors from seeking a default judgment even after you commit to a debt settlement agreement.

Commit to your repayment schedule

Once you commit to a settlement agreement, you can start repaying your debt. The good news is that Grant and Weber offers an online portal, so it’s easy to make regular payments. Now that you’re resolving your debt, you can work toward rebuilding your credit and moving on with your life.

Resolving debt is easier than you think
