It’s time to review your client trust account practices
Abstract: Handling client money happens daily in every law firm. State ethics rules require most attorneys to use trust funds to segregate client funds from firm funds. Maintaining these client trust accounts (CTAs) while meeting a state’s ethics rules can be onerous, but following the rules is better than sanctions or potential disbarment. CTA rules vary by state, and this article highlights ways law firms can monitor their CTA practices.
