Description

This CLE presentation, intended for newer practitioners, covers some of the basics of using trust accounts for legal fees. Lawyers, especially those with high volume practices who accept smaller flat fees for cases, often want to avoid depositing upfront fees into their trust accounts. This presentation discusses when unearned fees paid upfront can be deposited directly into the operating account and weighs the pros and cons of doing so. It also addresses where to look to find the applicable rules that cover legal fees and trust accounting.
