8. Why should I list in the directory?

In the practice of creditor and financial institutions law, frequently attorneys, credit unions, banks and financial institutions have need to correspond and refer legal matters to counsel in distant states and cities. This is necessitated by the fact that customers move from state to state and continue their business transactions with their original financial institution. According to the Credit Union National Associate (CUNA), as of March 2012, credit unions alone had over 94 million members who belonged to at least 7,300 credit unions throughout the United States. This does not include the millions of customers of banks and all other financial institutions throughout the United States. At times it is quite difficult to locate attorneys who are familiar with creditor rights and financial legal practice. The Credit Union Attorneys Legal Directory was created in order to assist attorneys throughout the United States in associating counsel and referring legal matters in all fields of law, particularly those related to creditors' rights, financial institutions and credit unions.
