That sounds like a long time, however, realize that an attorney cannot pay out funds from a trust account if there is any question at all about the original deposit. Money in a trust account does not belong to the attorney, but if there is a mistake or question, the attorney might be obligated to "make it good." In general, an attorney will not disburse funds from a trust account if there have any question at all that the incoming deposit might not have been made with good funds or will be returned. Also, if there is a dispute over who is to receive money from a trust account, the attorney might not be in a position to disburse them. If you are dealing with an attorney, you should call them up and ask what the issue is.
