The Clients' Security Fund of Ohio was established in 1985 to provide assistance to clients who have been financially harmed by the dishonest conduct of a licensed Ohio attorney. While most lawyers observe high standards of integrity when entrusted with clients' money and property, the dishonest acts of a few can affect the public's image of and confidence in all legal professionals. The Fund's goal is to restore public confidence in the legal profession by reimbursing law clients for losses sustained as a result of the dishonest conduct of their attorney.
