Recent disciplinary cases have underscored and differentiated what seemed like a hyper-technical Advisory Opinion regarding how to treat “flat fees”. The opinion, 2016-1, and the Vagotis decision are attached.

A technical reading of these documents sets out that if your fee agreement references “flat fee”, the fee should be deposited in your trust account. If your fee agreement references “earned upon receipt”, the fee should be deposited in operations.

BOTH AGREEMENTS, require the language from 1.5(d)(3) that “if the lawyer does not complete the representation for any reason, the client may be entitled to a refund of all or part of the fee based upon the value of the representation pursuant to division (a) of this rule.” BOTH AGREEMENTS therefore must be in writing.

Note that the Advisory Opinion recognized that a flat fee can be deemed to be “earned upon receipt” - presumably for how it is deposited. However, another recent decision, Petracci, also attached, found that a flat fee of $75 – a one&done – that was not deposited in trust was a 1.15 violation, requiring deposit in the trust account. Given the caselaw, the Advisory Opinion will not be much of a defense to depositing a flat fee directly into operations.

The safest practice is to deposit the flat fee in trust, and pay yourself upon completion – which may be as soon as the next day after payment/completion of representation. Again, if you want to continue with the flat fee concept, deposit it in trust going forward. If you want to continue with direct deposit into operations, limit it to “earned upon receipt” fee agreements. DO NOT use “earned upon receipt” agreements for fees paid in payments.

Please note that the grievance in Vagotis was filed by the client because the attorney failed to communicate. Had Attorney Vagotis maintained communications, she could have learned of these distinctions in a CLE program. Just sayin’.

I hope to use this experience to create a solid practice for myself while working on interesting matters. I am looking forward to picking up new tips and tricks from the many experienced attorneys in the area. Finally, I hope to get to know more members of the Toledo legal community.

I am a sports junkie. I am a big Detroit Lions and Tigers fan. My goal is to see a Lions game at every single NFL stadium.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hometown: Dearborn, Michigan
Undergrad: Western Michigan University
Law School: University of Toledo

Areas of Interest: Family Law, Juvenile Law, Criminal Defense


I am hoping to gain skills to develop my own private practice, such as networking and firm management, to help serve the community of Toledo. Throughout my time in law school, I explored my interest in community advocacy with my legal education. I am hoping to continue this in my practice, so the TBA Fellowship seemed like the perfect fit. I am also doing the Toledo Legal Aid Society fellowship as well.

I spend the majority of my free time with my partner, Drew, and my cat, Lincoln. We plan on getting a kitten soon! I enjoy reading, playing video games, crafting, and watching TV. When it is safe (in non-COVID times), I also spend a lot of time with family and friends, and I enjoy attending museums.

 

 

Hometown: Newport, Michigan
Undergrad: University of Toledo
Law School: University of Toledo 

Areas of Interest: Real Estate, Contract Disputes, Commercial Business / Business Formation, Landlord Tenant, Personal Injury, and Probate
 

I hope to use this fellowship opportunity as a stepping stone into the rest of my career as a solo practitioner. I have already been given invaluable guidance on how to start and I am taking in as much information as possible on how to shape my practice in the future. Additionally, I hope to use this year to gain as many connections with the Toledo legal community as possible.

I won Outstanding Clinician of the Year my last semester of law school. I have a wife, Chelsea, and a 1-year-old son, Jax.

2021 TBA Diversity Luncheon - Friday, February 19th
Remember the smell of your grandmother’s cooking, or simply spending hours in the kitchen during family holidays as food is prepared and grabbing a taste before sitting down for dinner? A family recipe is a way to reminisce, to document timeless family traditions, and to bring family and friends together. We’re celebrating the Diversity Luncheon a bit differently this year. We invited members to submit a family recipe to the TBA and tell us why it’s a special recipe so that we can share family traditions with other members. The cookbook can be downloaded here.  

We also encourage members to order lunch or dinner on Friday February 19th from a local ethnic restaurant of your choosing to support our friends in the restaurant industry during this difficult time. Tag the TBA and the restaurant you choose on social media. The TBA will host a virtual happy hour on Friday, February 19th at 7:00pm. Click here to register

Restaurants are a labor of love and are often born through family traditions and recipes. Submit a photo of your receipt/dinner to gscherzer@toledobar.org by midnight on Sunday, February 21, 2021 for a chance to win a $50 gift card to a local restaurant. A winner will be drawn at random.

The Robert A. Kelb Distinguished Service Award, the Toledo Bar Association’s highest award for service to the association and membership, was presented virtually to Thomas G. Pletz on December 30 by TBA president, William G. Meyer. To watch the complete presentation and acceptance of the award, click the video link below.

Thank you, Tom for your continued service and dedication to the legal community and seeing the importance of mentorship in the 'Toledo Way' of practicing law in NW Ohio. Congratulations on this well-deserved award!

 

Tom Pletz served on the TBA Board of Trustees from 1981-1994. Throughout his years of involvement in the TBA, Pletz has served on numerous committees and continues to volunteer annually at the High School District Mock Trial Competition. In 2003, he co-authored a “legal History of Lucas County” memorial book as TBA 125th anniversary project. 

He was President of the U.T. Law Alumni Board in 1979-1980 and was President of the Toledo Junior Bar Association (1982-83). In 1995 he received the Toledo Junior Bar Association Order of the Heel award as the senior bar member most helpful to young attorneys. Pletz has been admitted to the bar of the Supreme Court of the United States and is a Life Member of the U. S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals Judicial Conference. He served as a Member of the Ohio Board of Bar Examiners for 10 years, and as its Chair (1996-1999), when the Board raised the exam pass standard and added the Multi-State Performance Test. He served 26 years in the U.S. Naval Reserve, retiring as a Surface Warfare and Special Warfare Officer with the rank of Commander. Pletz continues to be an active leader in local church groups and area judicial campaigns and has served on several area boards in the community. 

As partner of Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, LLP, where he has practiced since 1972, Pletz focuses in the areas of constitutional and statutory rights, and in defamation and education law, as well as complex product liability cases, special remedies, and religious organizations. Since 1990, he has been an Acting Judge in Sylvania Municipal Court, for which he has written numerous decisions on a wide variety of civil and criminal law issues. He has been trial counsel of record in more than 40 reported state and federal court appellate decisions.
