The term retainer is thrown around but it can be one of two different things. The first is the agreement signed between our office and our clients. It details what we will do, and some of the rights and responsibilities you have as a client. The other form of "Retainer" are funds held in trust. These funds are deposited in a trust account and are used to fund your legal matter. Periodically we will bill against these funds, or charge expenses such as filing fees, photocopies or postage to these fees. If there are funds left in your retainer at the end of your matter they will be returned back to you.
Your account are the fees and expenses related to your matter. Our office operates that your account is matter specific, so you can have multiple accounts if you have multiple matters.
You legal problem. Your matter is the claim or allegations against you.
