This is attorney Bill offering assistance with your legal matter today.
All lawyers are required to abide by the ABA modal rules of ethical standards. A failure to abide to these rules can result in a fine, suspension of ability to practice or even disbarment.
Your attorney is required by these rules to keep client funds in a separate client escrow bank account but is entitled to deposit fees already due in his business account.
So if you feel that your lawyer has been in ethical violation of this rule, you are permitted to lodge a formal complainant with the Ohio Bar Association.
Here is the website where you can register a grievance with the commitee :
As I do not have all the facts on hand, I cannot say definitively if your lawyer has been in violation of these rules.
The rule is that money that has not yet to be earned should still be in the client account.
That can be looked into only after a complaint has been made.
If you feel that your case has been prejudiced by your attorney, another option for you is to file a malpractice suit against this attorney, if you have suffered loss or damage from malpractice.
Remember this is solely legal information.
