The "freezing", seizure or levy of bank account funds are only possible through a court order regardless of how the accounts are established. The exception of course being the IRS.

Can a judgment freeze bank accounts at more than one bank?

Yes. A Judgment involving a person would freeze all the bank accounts held by that person. For example, if X is involved in embezzlement charges (he stole money from his company worth $50,000) and the company finds out and charges him with that in court. If the court convicts him, he is bound to repay all the money to the company. So let us say he has 3 bank accounts with 3 different banks, the court will freeze all 3 accounts and instruct the bank to pay the money that is available in them to compensate for the $50,000 he stole from his company.

It means, someone has put a blocker on your assets and bank accounts. It means, you cannot withdraw cash, make any transactions on the account, or sell any of those assets until further notice.
