Customer Question
Hi, thank you. Lawyer's...

Hi, thank you.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

NSW

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No, pre probate. but it is a question ...

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

1. One of the executors is being obstructed from documents relating to the will, as am I (beneficiary) by the Estates Lawyers who are also being instructed not to release information by another executor, as he is also a client. Conflict of interest?
