My grandpa died 4 years ago in Pennsylvania and I'm entitled to one-third of his estate. I've asked for accounting and updates from the executor and estate lawyer several times during the past two years, but have been ignored. I realize I should have gotten a lawyer awhile ago, but I've been in and out of the hospital and live in Texas. I am meeting with a lawyer next week.

I suspect something fishy is going on. Has anyone else been through a similar situation? Any advice or stories are appreciated.

Only if you are directly mentioned in the will.

Contact the court directly as in most states its a matter of public record.

Good advice. One more question to ask......was the excutor bonded or not?

Could make a difference if you have to sue the executor for your share.
