Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Hi Kim. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.
The estate's assets are not responsible for your brother's attorneys fees. If he finds your sister to have misappropriated assets to his detriment, then your sister would find a court imposing these fees on her personally. Otherwise, your brother is responsible for his own attorneys fees. The other beneficiaries cannot be adversely impacted by your brother's attorneys fees...they are either going to be borne by him or your sister, but not the estate assets.
