The Maintenance of Trust Accounts is outlined and governed from the
Organization and Government of the Virginia State Bar, Rules of the Supreme
Court of Virginia Part 6, § IV, Paragraph 20. It is also reflective of Rule
1.15 on the safekeeping of property from the Rules of Professional Conduct.
The VSB Ethics Department has written a page to answer questions about trust accounting. To learn more about interest on Lawyer Trust Accounts (IOLTA) visit the Legal Services Corporation of Virginia.
