situation. The family is split, a brother and sister on her side, and a brother on mine. Today, I heard there were 10 bags of trash out at the street, but when I got there, already gone. The lawyer representing my moms estate used to be a nurse (my sister is a nurse) and from her tone I believe they are old acquaintances. Some of my property is still in the house and I have sent the lawyer a list. She said she passed the list along, but there is nothing else she can do about the situation. I do not have alot of funds, so am hesitant to hire a lawyer unless I know I need to--or is there something I can do?
