Yes, talk to the probate attorney to investigate the withdrawal.
This answer is not legal advice, and does not create an attorney - client relationship. This answer is for educational purposes only.
You are free to contact the probate attorney and provide the attorney with the information to show the withdrawal. If the sum is sufficient, you would also serve yourself well by retaining an attorney to review and monitor the situation, which might include presenting the matter in court if the probate attorney is ineffective in resolving the matter.
I agree with the above comments and would also add that if the poa is also the PR the estate attorney may have a conflict, so you should probably hire your own separate attorney to make sure the incident is handled properly. Keep in mind the Estate attorney does not represent the beneficiaries but he/she should look into the situation as he/she does have a responsibility to the estate.
This answer is for informational purposes only and not for the purpose of providing specific legal advice to your particular case. I have not reviewed your case yet nor have I met with you and the answer to this question does not in any manner whatsoever establish an attorney/client relationship. You can feel free to contact our offices for a free consultation.
Under the situation you describe, you need your own attorney. Hire a probate litigation attorney. As far as what it makes sense do, that will partially depend on what the funds were used for, the POA, and what you consider a lot. In Naples, a lot may really be a lot more than Punta Gorda. Anyway, talk with an attorney, give them the information and circumstances as well as how you know that a lot of money was removed and they can let you know what makes sense to do
My comments are not intended to establish an attorney-client relationship, are not confidential, and are not intended to constitute legal advice. Proper legal advice can only be given by an attorney who agrees to represent you, who reviews the facts of your specific case, who does not have a conflict of interest preventing the representation, and who is licensed as an attorney in the state where the law applies.
