Uncashed Trust Account Checks
Ethics Committee Opinion #2020-21/01
New Hampshire attorneys are obligated under the Supreme Court Rules and the Rules of Professional Conduct to regularly reconcile their trust accounts. Attorneys must promptly follow up on all uncashed checks in their trust accounts. If an attorney is unable to resolve the issue with the payee, then the attorney should carefully review and utilize the provisions of the unclaimed and abandoned property act, RSA Chapter 471-C.
