I would like to know if there is some statue in Oregon whereas from a settlement, an attorney must keep the funds received for their client in trust for a time period? My attorney says he believes there is some rule or statue or something with the BAR that states he has to keep them for a few days before giving the funds to me. He says he's not sure what it is but has to check into it? Does anyone one know? I need my money as soon as possible, and don't see why I need to wait after he takes out payment for services and pays any other bills related to the case, why the money can not be released to me immediately. He did not know for sure and said had to check on it, and feels he needs to keep the funds for a certain time period. Any ideas? Is he obligated to release the funds to me soon?
