New Jersey Trust and Business Accounting New Jersey lawyers are required to comply with the Supreme Court’s mandatory recordkeeping rule, R. 1:21-6 and ethics rule RPB 1.15 (“Safekeeping or Property.”) From a practical perspective, you are likely to have thousands of dollars or more of money from different clients in your attorney trust account at one time. There are strong penalties for comingling the funds and strict recordkeeping rules that set forth how the money should be accounted and under what circumstances it can be withdrawn. Further, since 1981, the New Jersey Supreme Court has operated the random audit program in order to determine an attorney’s compliance with these rules. At some point, every lawyer in New Jersey will be randomly audited. Most attorneys understand the necessity of maintaining proper trust and business accounts, but may be unsure of all of the specifics. This program will provide that and more. Experts will take you through the trust and business accounting process as prescribed by the RPC’s. You will receive practical tips for keeping up with all of the requirements even in your busiest times. You will also learn what to do to prepare for an audit.
