That is true, but I can file a petition with the surrogate court and THEN THEY WILL HAVE TO RESPOND TO ME AND BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE! sorry for the caps. Not yelling at you - just making my point!Yes. The estate attorney works for the estate. The estate attorney is liable to the executor and works at the direction of the executor. If they have been told to not respond to you, then they cannot respond to you. Your action is to speak with the executor.
Irrespective of that: the estate attorney does not control or have anything to do with the trust unless they are also hired to provide counsel for the trustee of the trust. That is an entirely separate issue.
