    Bridgeview Bank is an approved financial institution by the Lawyers Trust Fund of Illinois as a participant in the Interest on Lawyer Trust Accounts (IOLTA) program. This unique partnership between the banking community and the legal profession provides hundreds of thousands of people across the country the legal help they need.

    Bidgeview Bank IOLTA checking accounts are limited to attorneys and law firms that maintain escrow funds for multiple clients. An IOLTA checking account pools the funds into a single, interest bearing account. Interest earned, less any allowable reasonable service fees, is forwarded by Bridgeview Bank Group to the Lawyers Trust Fund of Illinois to fund legal expenses for those who are unable to afford legal services, and other justice related projects of the board.


    Bridgeview IOLTAs are an easy way for lawyers to hold funds in a trust or escrow account for their clients. If you are an attorney who handles nominal or short-term client funds that cannot earn interest for that client in excess of the costs incurred to collect the interest, Bridgeview Bank assists you with pooling the money into an interest bearing account and distributing the interest to the Lawyers Trust Fund of Illinois.
