National Bar Association Know Your Rights

The National Bar Association cares deeply for our community. Our members have prepared informational videos so that our citizens have a better understanding of their rights. Our goal is for our family, friends, and neighbors to avoid unnecessary pitfalls and missteps, victimization due to misinformation, and to positively and effectively exercise their constitutional rights to improve their lives and our communities. Please share our video in your communities including schools, churches, community centers, and other comparable groups.

Predatory Lending

This video is for informational purposes only and is not intended to be legal advice. It is a tool to help citizens be more responsible when making financial decisions. In regards to lending (for example, home, auto, and consumer), the associated contracts can be onerous and contain unfair business terms. In addition, when our debts far exceed our ability to pay, we encourage our community to cautiously navigate our bankruptcy laws.
