The will is clear on your bequest and this needs to be followed. The only issue is value, which should have been measured and applied to all beneficiaries. If the attorney is not responding, consider these 2 options:

1. having your own lawyer send a letter demanding a breakdown of value and amounts paid.

2. asking the court to intervene and obtain this information

3. asking the court to distribute and redistribute based on a fair market value and an accounting of all funds.
