Who is Cornerstone Legal Group?

Written by Steve Rhode

A reader wrote in and wanted to know more about a debt relief company, Cornerstone Legal Group.

I am not familiar with the company at so I’d love to hear from anyone who has used this company in the comments below.

If we look at the ownership of the domain name it does not help to solve the mystery, the ownership is hidden.

According to the Illinois Secretary of State the company is a Wisconsin LLC and a Jason Blust is the manager of the LLC. The corporate office is listed as 8383 GREENWAY BLVD STE 600, MIDDLETON, WI – 53562. That address appears to be a Regus virtual office address. – Source

According to the State of Wisconsin the name of the company was Paradigm Legal Services, LLC until they changed the name on April 18, 2013.

What caught my attention is the fact at least one of the offices listed on the Cornerstone Legal Group website is the same as the former Legal Helpers Debt Resolution headquarters office at 233 S. Wacker Drive, Suite 5150. – Source

Who knows, maybe they just coincidently took over that same office space.

But what is entirely perplexing is the page of actual settlements they achieved seems to match, the same settlements listed by Fast Track Debt Relief.

And for some reason the website of Cornerstone Legal Group refers to themselves as Cornerstone Financial Services, Inc. Which is it?

  • I agree don’t trust this company, they charge up front fees, that they deduct from your account before they even contact your creditors. You never get a statement show what service they are providing for you. I asked for copies of letters where they had contacted my creditors. They would call me and tell me that they contacted my creditors, but couldn’t produce a copy of the letters. Creditor keep calling me. They told me after 3 months the creditor would stop calling. After three months. I noticed that my account was showing a balance of 39.00. The fourth month to 59.00 six months my balance 139,00 pending a balance of 237.48. checking my account sent them an email and ask them to close my account. The fees are like 100.00 retainer fee, 39.00 service fee. 97.00 administration fee 59. 00 service fee, and 10.99 account fees. All these fees comes out first. I was having 306.00 drafted into my debt reserve account within six months into the program my balance is 237.48. I placed a stop payment on my checking account to stop withdraws Global Client Service that hold all cornerstone accounts withdraw the money ignoring the stop payment. When I sighed up with them back in sept 2015 they assure me they would be working with my creditors, when I spoke with my sponsor person she told me they don’t communicate with the creditors, they would ask why I can pay them and not pay my debt. This not what I was told in the beginning of the program. She became rude when I told her I wanted out of the program.

  • Thank you Carnesa and I agree with you, do not trust this company at all. I submitted a quote to Fast Track and then signed papers with Cornerstone Legal. They will take your money and will not help you. All you will get is charged off credit!

  • Don’t not trust this company. They are a complete rip off, they charge you extra fees they don’t mention at all. I paid 270 a month and only 35 went to my credit. After making payments for 6 months I had a total of $130 that actual went to my credit. Do not trust them they will tell you anything.
