LEO: Funds of Client - Trust Account -  LE Op. 704


Funds of Client - Trust Account - Personal Injury Settlement



June 26, 1985


It would be improper for attorney and client to negotiate a settlement

check at the payor bank without first running the check through the

attorney's trust account. It would also be improper to request the payor

bank to issue a cashier's check payable to attorney and client and then

immediately disburse the proceeds. DR:9-102, LE Op. 614]
