New association created for attorneys who represent creditors

A group of Colorado attorneys has formed the Colorado Creditor Bar Association.

The new association is devoted to the ethics and practice of attorneys who work in the area of creditors’ rights. The CCBA is also committed to consumer protection, as well as public and political education about creditors’ rights and the debt collection industry.

The group’s membership is limited to Colorado licensed attorneys in good standing with the Colorado Supreme Court who focus their practice areas on credit and collection issues by representing creditors.

The CCBA was created because there was a “dearth in the current state and local bar associations regarding creditors’ rights and issues,” according to a press release about the new association. The CCBA hopes to elevate standards and improve attorneys who focus on creditor issues in their practice.

The CCBA plans to promote the adoption of legislation and court rules to equitably address issues involving enforcement and collection of debt.

“We’re thrilled to offer a new organization for attorneys who represent creditors in Colorado,” said CCBA president David Silverman. “We believe there is a unique need for open exchange and collaboration amongst attorneys in our industry. We welcome an open and candid conversation with all aspects of the debt collection industry, including and especially, consumer advocacy groups and the state and federal benches in Colorado.”
