Five for Friday #8

Bonjours!   I’m in Montreal for the YLD Thaw.  Presenting a true “Five for Friday” later today – 5 rounds of questions for the coveted Thaw Bowl title.

Sorry I’m late.  Here are 5 of the questions that’ll be asked later today. As always, please forward to anyone who might be interested and use search engines, books, or colleagues for help — except for Question 5.   Email your answers to

Question 1:

Which is specifically required by the trust accounting rules?

  • A. Secure Storage of Signature Stamps
  • B. Three Way reconciliation
  • C. “Good funds” prior to disbursement
  • D. “Collected funds” prior to disbursement

Question 2

The Vermont Rules of Professional Conduct require lawyers to self-report:

  • A. Violations of the Rules of Professional Conduct
  • B. Criminal Convictions
  • C. Adverse Malpractice Judgements
  • D. Discipline Imposed in another Jurisdiction

Question 3

Attorney called me with inquiry. I said:

“You could, but you don’t have to if you learned about it in the course of representing a client.”

Given my response, what is it that Attorney asked whether she has to do?

Question 4

Your divorce client says:  “I bet he used that app to talk to her.  Can we get that stuff? Or is it gone? You should subpoena his cell phone.”

You ask which app.

She replies “you know, the one with Ghostface ChillahOr maybe it’s called Noface Chillah now. I wonder if their dirty talks are still there.”


Question 5

Today’s CLEs include a seminar on the ethics of advising clients on marijuana related issues.  Some might argue that Dr. Dre’s debut album is related to the topic.

  • Name the iconic album.
