What is the name of your state? Washington State. My mother had my daughter type up a new will. When she died last year my daughter took it to the attorney's office. He said that it was not a valid living will even though he knew it was my mother's signature on the will since he had been her attorney for years. I had to hire him to get me named as her executor because her old will stated that my step-father was her executor and they had not been together for years. Not only that she had changed alot of things in her will. My mother still owed this attorney a debt and after she died, he assigned that debt to me and was charging interest on this debt. I found a bill from him to my mother that was dated 1 month before her death. It says she owed him 1200 dollars. And after her death, he said that she owed him over 2000 dollars. I even have copies of checks that show she had paid several payments since that invoice. And since my mom lived with me, I know she had not used him since febuary of that year. I need to know how to go about getting him to correct that bill and stop trying to steal money from her estate and to acknowledge the second will.
