Who is the National Creditors Bar Association™ (NARCA)?

The National Creditors Bar Association (NARCA) is a trade association dedicated to serving law firms engaged in the practice of creditors rights law.

What we do

In November 1992 in New York City, 20 collection attorneys met to discuss how to develop retail collection business. They unanimously agreed that a new association should be formed to foster the idea.

At the time, nobody - including creditors - knew who the biggest law firm in each state was, or even who practiced in this field of law. NARCA saw the need to identify retail collection law firms, bind them together, and let creditors know what their members could provide to them.

Don Kramer, NARCA's first president, rented a small space near his office in St. Louis and hired an Executive Director. Almost immediately, 740 law firms indicated they wanted to be a part of NARCA, although disputes with commercial collection agencies led to a dropout of some initial members. Almost all have now rejoined NARCA.

The first NARCA Collection Conference was held at the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas in 1993, with 444 attendees. In addition, NARCA developed a Membership Directory for distribution among creditors. NARCA kept growing as the benefits of an association devoted to law firms that collect consumer debt became increasingly obvious.

FAQs - Using the NARCA Buyer's Guide

How can I locate relevant companies?

There are two methods to locate companies relevant to your needs.

The most efficient is to utilize the category/sub-category breakdown on the homepage and simply click on the sub-category that most closely relates to your query.

You may also use a keyword or location search to query the entire database of companies. A keyword or location search will pull from all data stored within the guide. You may also further refine your search queries via the category/sub-category drop down menu below the keyword search bar.

How does the RFP/RFI submission tool work?

Certain companies that have elected to include additional information about their products and services have "profile" pages accessible from search results via a "View Profile" link. This link only appears for companies that elect to create a "profile" page. These companies also provide access to an RFP/RFI submittal tool. This tool allows you to send them a request to bid on your business.

The tool requires that you submit your company name, contact information, and a description of products or services for which you are seeking a proposal.

While this tool can be helpful it is always quickest to pick up the phone and call the company directly, but we are happy to offer the RFP/RFI submission tool for your convenience.
