What is an IOLTA?

An IOLTA Account is a way to raise money for civil legal services provided to those who cannot afford to pay out of pocket. Attorneys deposit nominal or short-term client funds in IOLTA accounts and the interest earned goes to the state IOLTA program. Utilizing an IOLTA account is a great way for law firms to give back while satisfying their ethical and fiduciary duties.
