If a third party is to hold on to these funds, you can arrange for the lawyer to keep them, or alternatively, retrieve them from the lawyer and arrange for another acceptable 3rd party to hold onto them.
If there is no such requirement that a third party hold them, then you can just demand the lawyer return the funds for you.
Hopefully that is of assistance.
If you are satisfied with my answer, please provide me with a positive rating so I can receive payment. Thank you.
