Should Virginia lawyers be subject to random audits of trust accounts?

This article in the Norfolk paper says that this year's VSB President Howard W. Martin, Jr., favors random audits of lawyer trust accounts in Virginia, as has been done in North Carolina for 23 years.

I'm in favor, on two conditions: (1) no dues increase, and (2) no discrimination against solos and very small firm lawyers (meaning firms smaller even than ours).

There might not be a dues increase, but I guarantee that it would discriminate against small firms and singles.
