You question is a little vague and confusing. I suggest you take the decedent's documents (will and trust) to a probate and trust lawyer to review them and explain what your roles are.
I am not sure what you are asking, but I will try to provide an answer.
The successor trustee has the duty to administer the trust, give notices, provide accountings annually, and distribute the property as efficiently as possible.
The person nominated as executor has the duty to determine if probate is necessary or if a Small Estate Affidavit is sufficient. If probate is necessary, then the person nominated needs to do it.
A temporary/special executor/administrator is usually appointed to save estate assets. e.g. Avoid foreclosure of decedent's home.
When the person gives you money, the person has an attorney and the attorney has a client, but not until then. Inspired by words of Abraham Lincoln
