As an attorney, you will often receive funds from a client before you even perform any services for a client. Many attorneys require payment of a retainer or an advance for future services. What’s the difference between the two? What legal ethics issues do retainers and advances create? Professor Barbara Glesner Fines of the University of Missouri – Kansas City will explains the issues in this Lawdible.
