Need lawyer for probate. Financial options please?
Question by What if I’m not adopted?: Need lawyer for probate. Financial options please?
In the near future I will need a lawyer to represent me in very large family estate. My relative who is on death’s bed will leave behind many properties and a large trust. At one point I was the executor or her will, and was listed on the trust. I am not aware of the current will. I fear that this will be a huge battle(with her current spouse having access to large sums of money). I have never been exposed to her world and don’t have a savings(or trust that I am aware of, other then from her estate). What is my best financial option to be represented efficiently? To get prepaid legal before she passes away? Pro Bono? another option? Thanks!

Start interviewing experienced family law [probate] specialists to investigate the estate matters.
If you are heir to $ $ $ $ $ , why would you expect a specialist work for nothing; so, forget about “pro bono.” It will annoy any professional.
