The named executor is not a beneficiary of the will. Another lawyer in the firm, that drafted the will, is the one who sent me a letter stating: This firm represents ____ ____, Executor of the Estate of ____ ____. Am I confused, I thought the lawyers who drafted the will, would represent the beneficiaries, if indeed anyone needs representing. Why would an executor need representing? Is there something I'm missing or possibly not aware of? Thank you before hand to all that reply!
