    • Client: this column displays the name of each client.
    • Matter: this column displays the matter for each client.
    • Unbilled amount: this column lists any unbilled time and expense entries for the matter.
    • Amount in trust: this column lists the amount of money currently in trust for the client or matter.
    • Minimum threshold: this column lists the minimum threshold set for matter trust funds. This amount can be changed by editing the matter and changing the number for Trust balance notification under Billing preferences.
