I'm going to file a Petition to Remove Executor as pro se but the matter is very unique and need advice on how to file.

Asked over 1 year ago - Little Rock, AR

I'm a beneficiary. The estate attorney's license has been suspended for many months. The executor refuses to communicate. Based on all that, do I / should I give the UPL estate attorney a filed marked copy of the petition to remove executor? Do I / should I also give the uncooperative executor a file marked copy if he told me to never contact him again, but to only go through the UPL estate attorney? I plan to file a grievance against the UPL attorney at the same time I file the petition to remove the executor. Should I state in the petition to remove executor that the attorney is UPL? So far I won't hoping the executor uses that UPL attorney during the hearing in which case I will disclose it then and the judge should side with me quickly.
