Do I need to know the bank account number to have the Petition of Probate served on the estate bank account?

Yes you do and if the sister and brother know if it, then they can be forced to provide this. Time to hire another probate attorney who knows what they are doing.
No, just provide a death certificate but it sounds like you have bigger problems than that and need to get a new attorney who will respond to you.
You do not need the account number. You do need to know the name of the bank.
Have you signed the petition? The petition cannot be filed without your signature.
After filing, a hearing is scheduled 4 to 5 weeks later and notice is sent to all heirs and those named in the will. You would not get mailed notice, but the attorney should email you the petition.
