11 U.S.C. §330; Retainer; Payment of Professional Fees
In re Bramlett Plumbing, Inc., 2005 Bankr. LEXIS 2766, No. 05-73925 (Bankr. N.D. Ga. October 14, 2005)(Murphy)
The majority position in bankruptcy case law is that retainers to professionals are property of the estate and must remain in a trust account until an entry of an order allowing the payment of fees.
