LEO: Trust Account Inscription  LE Op. 584


Trust Account Inscription.


May 28, 1984


It is not improper for an attorney to maintain a personal, non-legal bank

account bearing the inscription "Trust Account, _____, Attorney and

Counselor at Law". Such a practice may be peculiar and confusing; however,

unless it relates to a specific activity which would make the practice, in

context, fraudulent, deceptive or misleading, there is no impropriety in

maintaining such an inscription.
