Lawyer trust accounts discussed


The State Bar of Michigan (SBM) recently presented the “Lawyer Trust Accounts: Management Principles and Recordkeeping Resources” seminar at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law in Detroit. The half-day seminar featured presentations on how to ethically manage lawyer trust accounts, and effectively use forms, checklists, and other recordkeeping resources. Taking part in the program were Erin Farler, SBM Professional Standards Investigative Counsel Danon Goodrum-Garland, SBM Professional Standards Service Counsel Nkrumah Johnson-Wynn, Karen Spohn and Attorney Grievance Commission Senior Associate Counsel Rhonda Pozehl. The event was described by Johnson-Wynn as “a hands-on presentation so not only is it a review of the rules but we also provide tools and resources for the lawyers and their legal assistants to take back to their offices with them as well as sample forms and checklists.”
