North Carolina Creditors Bar Association
The North Carolina Creditors Bar Association (NCCBA) is a specialty bar association formed to serve the needs and promote the interests of attorneys who represent creditors in this state. NCCBA attorneys are engaged in a broad variety of practices, ranging from transactional attorneys who draft loan and security agreements to bankruptcy, collection, and foreclosure attorneys who are retained to enforce the agreements and recover the funds owed their clients. As so clearly illustrated by the Great Recession, our nation’s economy depends on the availability of credit to fuel spending and investment by businesses and consumers. Members of the NCCBA are committed to protecting and enforcing the rights of those who make credit available. Membership in the association is limited to attorneys who devote at least 25% of their time to creditor representation.
The North Carolina Senate has introduced Senate Bill 632, short-titled "Civil Judgment/Allow Wage Garnishment." You can learn more about the bill through the North Carolina General Assembly's website here. Garnishment would empower judgment debtors, facilitate the availability of credit, and boost our economy.
