Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.

If you owe your attorney any money under the fee agreement, the attorney can have the check made out to his escrow account in order to collect his fee before you receive the funds.

Expert:  Roger replied 1 year ago.

In most cases, the settlement check will be made payable to the client and his/her attorney.
