Man paying his monthly bills, looking shocked at a bill he just opened. Three NY lawyers were suspended for trust account violations by their Office Manager recently.  These attorneys weren’t inexperienced. One had been practicing law for 33 years.  This is an all too common issue with attorneys who have long-term employees they trust handling financial aspects of their firms.  This isn’t a new phenomenon; we have probably all heard about something similar.  In the…
