This National Law Journal investigation "examined the network of state funds that exist to reimburse clients whose money have been stolen by their attorneys." The reporter concluded that "the funds in general were largely a sham: they are poorly endowed, stingy about payouts and not publicized." The three-story packet compared the victims' experiences in "a large state and small state, Illinois and Nebraska" and provided information about the security funds caps and average reimbursements state by state.
