My father-in-law signed a contract with a lawyer over a dispute with probate of his father’s estate. The lawyer froze all assets that were in probate. My father-in-law passed with no will. He had no property and all assets were used to pay for his final expenses. He really has no estate and nothing went to probate. Is the contract still valid? If the contract states that the attorney is still owed money who has to pay for that? How do we get the funds in probate released?
