I am having issues with an executor/lawyer of an estate I am

I am having issues with an executor/lawyer of an estate I am the beneficiary to. He has not been transparent about the process or progress despite many attempts. He took it upon himself to spend 25K on renovations for a property and sent no invoices or documentation about estate spending. He also was previously convicted of tax fraud and although reinstated, I find his actions unsettling especially being unsupervised with a lot of money.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: New JerseyJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No this is preliminary because I am unsure of what my rights are as the beneficiary. Also, I am aware that if we upset him enough, he can hold and tie up the funds and assets that I am entitled to.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no

In November, my Son's wife and children were struck by a red

In November, my Son's wife and children were struck by a red light runner. Pamela was killed, Little Audrey, (1yr.4 months, suffered a TBI, and 3 year old Ryan had multiple fractures and his right arm has plates, and is two inches shorter. ) Both are getting therapy and Ryan will need another surgery. There was a ton of pain and suffering and there will be financial hardship. The man responsible has a long record of DUI and other crimes, but has paid fines and kept up. He was driving on a suspended license, no insurance, owner of car, no insurance. Yesterday, the County Attorney presented case and there were no laws in AZ to make this a felony. It goes back to the City of Chandler for some Mis-Demeaner charges. Some people have suggested we bring a civil case against the Man responsible to at least make him aware he has really made some terrible choices and whatever financial help for these children with possible long term disability and loosing their mother. My question is, does this sound like a civil case issue and if so what king of attorney does Matt need. Thank You carol markov Mom and Grandmom to Matt and these children.JA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?Customer: Arizona. The laws here are weak for red light runner. So all we have is red light running and driving with a suspended license. Because of the mans background and comments like "Did I hit Something" It is outrageous to us. But judge decided yesterday, According to AZ law there is no felony....JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Ploice report We have not done anything They said yesterday, that these charges go back to the city.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Pamela was an equal family supporter. Now income will be almost cut in half and Matt still has child care costs. Audrey, is regaining her talking and walking skills, but with TBI we will not know what residual injury there is as she is a baby.
