Ann Lesk speaks to New York Law Journal about the IOLA rescue

New York trust and estates partner Ann Lesk is quoted in an article about a recent Senate hearing on proposed solutions to generate funds for the Interest on Lawyer Account (IOLA) fund. The IOLA fund provides financial support to civil legal service organizations. In the last year IOLA's revenue has plunged as a result of the financial and economic crisis. Speaking on behalf of the New York County Lawyers' Association (NYCLA), of which Ms. Lesk is president, she stated that the NYCLA "strongly supports" the "emergency infusion of funds to IOLA."
