Michigan Credit Union Law

Helping Credit Unions in all of Metro Detroit

If you are operating or working at a credit union in Michigan and need to have your questions answered on topics such as regulatory compliance, credit reporting, identity theft, member transactions, employment policies or other financial services, the Schwartz Law Firm has the in-depth experience you need. From our office in Farmington Hills, Michigan, our credit union attorneys represent clients in the Detroit area and throughout Michigan.

Credit union law is a unique niche of the law, but it is a big part of our legal practice. Our attorneys are familiar with all the state and federal statutes and regulations that must be followed in order to run a successful credit union. We use our knowledge and detail-oriented approach not only to help credit unions with commercial litigation and real estate transactions, but also with daily operations, regulatory compliance issues and human resources assistance.
