Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
Until you get named administrator, you are not going to be able to take any actions against them for taking property from the estate. Once you are named administrator, then your first action would be send a demand to every heir for the property they took from the estate. Then if they refuse, you can file a theft complaint with the police and have them charged. You could also get the probate court to order them to return the property and to hold them in contempt of court for their refusal which could result in them being put in jail for contempt.
You have to go with the legal process, as does the attorney and many times the legal process cannot be rushed. You need to tell the attorney though that they are taking from the estate without permission and something needs to be done to protect the estate from their looting and it is his legal duty to protect the estate and get an administrator named. If the attorney refuses to at least move to get you named as administrator or collect the estate property, then you need to consider terminating this attorney and getting a new probate attorney involved.
