RULES OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT (RPC)
Purpose: At its September, 24, 2010 meeting the Board of Governors of the Washington State Bar Association unanimously adopted the recommendation of the Rules of Professional Conduct Committee described as follows:
The purpose of this suggested amendment is to correct the language of the exception to the general rule that prohibits lawyers from disbursing funds from a trust account until deposits have cleared the banking process and have been collected. The exception applies when the bank and the lawyer agree that the lawyer will personally guarantee all deposits to the trust account, not the disbursements from it. This is a non-substantive, technical correction to the rule language.
