Could you clarify?
Why is she concerned that her attorney may freeze profit?
Ok. Thank you for the clarification.
Now back to your original question:
Can her attorney freeze sale profit without consent and if so for how long.
Response: Yes, her attorney can freeze the sale profit without her consent. The freeze can last until the attorney gets fully compensated for his services. Your wife should carefully review the retainer agreement to see what other options that the attorney may have in making sure that he gets paid for services already rendered so that she would not have any nasty surprises.
