    Attorneys: Are you Accounting for your Interest on Lawyers Trust Account (IOLTA) Correctly?

    A law firm has a responsibility to not only represent their clients in a just way, but also to manage their clients’ advances/deposits for court fees, fines and other potential payments. Interest on Lawyers Trust Account (IOLTA) is an account in which lawyers hold funds that do not belong to the lawyer right now or are disputed. Without taxing the public, and at no cost to lawyers or their clients, interest from IOLTA is pooled to provide civil legal aid to the poor and support improvements to the justice system. Due to the timing and sensitivity of lawsuits, a client’s funds are held in escrow by their attorney and are protected in a special type of bank account, called an IOLTA.
