IOLTA (Interest on Lawyers' Trust Accounts)
Created to fund legal services for the less fortunate, IOLTA accounts allow clients' short-term or small-dollar escrow funds to be deposited into an interest-bearing checking account. 1st Mariner Bank forwards the interest earned on this account to the Maryland Legal Services Corporation to pay for lawyers’ services for low-income people battling landlord/tenant issues, child custody disputes and advocacy for people with disabilities, among others.
