Built-in Trust Safeguards

CosmoLex protects you and your firm from the most common IOLTA trust/escrow accounting violations.

  • Auditors require a paper trail, even when there’s no paper. CosmoLex’s audit trail includes a log of each time a trust transaction is touched. You can instantly locate who touched the file and when. CosmoLex also maintains a record of each month’s reconciliations report that can protect you from charges of theft or financial mismanagement.
  • CosmoLex includes automatic safeguard checks that prevent the most common trust management mistakes, such as comingling of funds, overdrafts or duplicate check numbers.
  • Simple data entry mistakes can give you a false idea of how much cash you have available. Monthly reconciliations catch errors quickly, so they don’t carry into future months.

No Other Trust Accounting Software Required

You don’t need to use 3rd party accounting software for bank statement imports, bank reconciliation, report generation or check printing. (Every duplicate data entry or export/import is one more possible error you can’t afford!) CosmoLex integrates all the functions you need.

Bank Reconciliation Auditors Can “Trust”

Monthly bank reconciliation is one of the most important aspect of trust accounting and is heart and soul of trust account audits. Monthly bank reconciliation reports are mandatory, helps you locate banks & your mistakes. These are also the first set of reports lawyers are asked for during the audit.

Beware of bank reconciliations methods offered by general business accounting programs! Most of them do not allow you to go back to prior periods and fix any discrepancies or reprint prior reports. Instead you need to re-start bank reconciliation all over again, from day-1. CosmoLex attorney trust accounting software’s reconciliation is robust and designed for only law firms and their unique IOLTA accounting requirements. You can auto-reconcile book transactions with electronic bank statement data (QBO format) or reconcile manually. Additionally, you can go back to any prior month and simply look at the snapshot of transactions exactly the way it was and fix any mistakes, reprint reports. CosmoLex also automatically locks your books after bank reconciliations are complete to prevent accidental edits.

In most states, attorney trust account regulations require monthly three-way reconciliation reports. CosmoLex will produce these critical documents for you — in one click.

Support for Positive Pay

Check fraud can be especially devastating to practices in certain areas of law, such as personal injury and real estate settlements. Even a solo firm can easily have over a million dollars in a trust account, which means that the potential loss from the passing of a fraudulent check is enormous. And when a large number of checks are issued every month by multiple parties – this further increases the fraud potential.

Positive Pay is a service provided by most major banks. It has become the industry standard protection against check fraud. CosmoLex IOLTA software and trust accounting includes built-in support for integration with Positive Pay.
