Why This Seminar Matters

Trust account violations remain a critical issue, consistently ranking among the top two breaches of the Virginia Rules of Professional Conduct. These violations account for nearly one-fifth of disciplinary sanctions annually and are often preventable. Many violations arise from misunderstandings about ethical obligations under the Rules of Professional Conduct, specifically:

Rule 1.5(a) – Fees: Guidelines for reasonable fees.

Rule 1.15 – Safekeeping Property: Proper handling of client funds and property.

Rule 1.16 – Declining or Terminating Representation: Procedures for ending client representation.
