As part of our package of financial business solutions customized for attorneys and law firms, The Farmers State Bank offers IOLTA (Interest on Lawyers Trust Accounts) Checking.

Our IOLTA account lets you hold your clients’ funds in an interest-bearing account with the earnings sent automatically to the Ohio Access to Justice Foundation in Ohio and the Indiana Bar Foundation in Indiana – which means less bookkeeping and more convenience for you.
