How long should a law firm hold funds? 2 Answers as of December 09, 2014

We have 1/3 ownership in property that was taken by the state for roadway improvements. The partner was paid in October. I have been asking for accounting for the funds and found a mistake in the distribution sheet. Also, the partner owes for a court settlement back in 1990. It seems the law firm in trying to keep the funds until the end of the year.
