Thank you for your follow-up.

Please be aware that you are posting where you have no attorney client privilege, and all you post becomes accessible online. Bearing that in mind, you may want to consider not posting names of parties in case they later may claim defamation of character or other legal claims against you.

Having said that...

As this is a very substantial will, you may want to retain your own probate attorney who can possibly contest your sister's handling of the estate on your behalf, and get the legitimate financial spreadsheets that exist at this time. If you are a beneficiary of the estate, you are entitled to the true estate numbers, which you can request from the administrator.

Good luck.

Expert:  Dimitry K., Esq. replied 6 years ago.
If your sister lied, you can attempt to pursue her for breach of her fiduciary duty, and force her to then provide you with all the information as well as possibly pay you for whatever damages your share of the estate was subjected to based on her mismanagement.

Good luck.
