I have called the attorney several times for 3 days and he won't return my calls. My father is in the morgue and I can't move his body until I know his wishes.
Estate Planning Attorney
Oh no. I recommend that you go to the attorney's office in person if possible. If that's not possible, I would be more persistent - call and demand to know a schedule and a cell phone number to reach the attorney, send very urgent emails, etc.
However, not all estate planning attorneys keep copies of wills - are you sure that your father's attorney kept his will? If I were you, I recommend you also search through his belongings or personal papers to find the will. You may also wish to hire an attorney to assist you - you will probably want to hire an attorney to help with probate anyway. Good luck!
I am sorry for your loss. Ms. White is correct. Stand on the lawyer's doorstep if need be. But as she notes, he might not have a copy. Maybe dad had a safety deposit box?
