I am a beneficiary to a will that has taken almost 4 years without a settlement. The attorney and executor have not responded to questions concerning the excessive time to probate the will. In a rare email from the executor, he claimed that the attorney does not respond to his inquiries. This is a disgrace and has dragged on long enough. I think additional attorney and executor fees will consume most of the final estate distribution. Is an accounting something I can initiate by myself or is a attorney required?
