    Not a lawyer, but some experience.  And from my experience, if something isn't going the direction of the probate case, hire a lawyer and get the courts involved if needed.  What folks want  vs. what was intended can be a pain in the ****.

    Try to find one that's not all about "the billable hours"

    Good luck!

    I see a problem in my future that madbeach just outlined. I’m trying hard to get some clarification in writing but haven’t been successful yet. It’s looking messy already. I feel like telling them to get a different executor.

    Hiring a probate lawyer means, Past Tense of the law.  so some one is getting screwed.

    I think we are good. Wife's mom has her last will and a revocable trust written up.  Wifes brother and his wife seem to have nothing for his wife's mom who recently passed away.

    Hiring a probate lawyer will protect the beneficiary.  If there is a dispute amoungst the beneficiaries, then petitioning the court for a sit-down with the probate judge assigned can help move the case along.  At least he/she and the beneficiaries know where they stand in the case and what is expected out of the executor(s).  Things can get muddy without order.
