My recording office has a will my mom wrote and recorded

Customer Question

My recording office has a will my mom wrote and recorded plus a recorded revocable trust with a 1st admendment removing 2 siblings and moving my other sibling and I into first and 2nd place as heirs hip and executors. A attorney from another state where my parent died says he searched but found no wills. I went down and had the docs copied and certified the other day to prove they existed. If I found them why did he not was so easy. HE PREVIOUSLY FILED ANOTHER DOC IN SAME OFFICE SO HE KNOWS WHERE TO LOOK. WAS THIS A SHADY DEAL AND WHAT STANDS LEGAL RECORDED DOCS OR NONE RECORDED DOCS?
JA: Working with a will can seem daunting, but getting the right information now can only help. Fortunately, the attorneys we work with have a lot of experience, and I'd like to match you with the one who's the best fit. Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: No. I want to get this over with my mom died in Jan and seems to not be doing things right no publications only legacy notification of death but nothing else
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: This lawyer is chummy with brother in law and think something going on. They filed in probate in April small estate and said died in t estate. ...not true he should have done due dillegence
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Estate Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
