    Answered . I can't speak to what is going on in this complex matter with your attorney of which I don't have knowledge. Most attorneys I know do an excellent job, sometimes the situation can't be resolved without going to court. Court is very expensive, but just like anything else, sometimes a second opinion is in order, before deciding whether to take the next step.

    Answered . Probate cases are complicated and that is especially so when there is conflict. You have the right to hire who you want to represent the estate. Look around for another attorney. You may need to look in adjacent counties or cities. Look at the experience of the attorney, peer reviews and recommendations, client satisfaction, and make sure you find an attorney with whom you can communicate and work as a team. This site it a great resource, but talk to several attorneys. Good luck!
