He said he want to buy it, He is also beneficary. he need to get loan. he wanted me and my sisters to sign paper to get a loan so we can get our share of sale of apartments i said ok no problem if every one was in agreement. he sent paper there was no company on the paper that was going to give him loan No date or who the lender is.just put our name on paper, i told him that it would be best for everyone to meet and sign it in front of notary together He got mad, he wanted loan for 115.00.00 pay me my share and not pay my 2 sisters there share as stated in will . His and one sister monies when the estate is sod is to go to a trustee fund.Then the probate attorney back out, due to conflict.which we needed a probate attorney from the get go. the probate attorney he had will not release anything until he get a another attorney . In that account is the car and life insurance Now he stating hes not getting loan now and that hes going sit on the apartment not sale it,i cant afford a attorney i went to legal service, no funds , what can i do?
I still recommend you go to a probate attorney. The probate attorney will be able to tell if you have something coming your way and if so, some of us will agree to collect payment when the probate is complete.
I agree with Mr. Brightwell. I also suggest that you write a letter to the judge asking him to require the executor (your brother) to get another attorney with a set time and then if he doesn't you can again notify the court and they may remove him. Legal aid may be able to assist or ask around for an attorney. Clearly it appears there is money to pay the attorney once the estate is settled. Many will wait.

I agree with my colleagues. You should contact a local probate attorney to discuss your rights more specifically. Many attorneys offer free consultations or can direct you to a low cost or pro bono office. Best of luck.
