Welcome! Thank you for your question.
The attorney who prepared a will is only able to disclose information based on the consent of the person that made the will. If that person is deceased the attorney can discuss the will with the executor of the will. The attorney is not authorized to disclose the will with anyone else.
Once the will is filed with the probate
court the information in the will is then public. When the information in the will is public the attorney can disclose information in the will based on the judgment of the attorney.
