This is an area of the law that is extremely technical. Could you do it yourself? Probably if it's relatively simple but nothing in the world appropriate work is simple. Having said this, I would strongly recommend you retain the services of a probate litigator and I think with a 1 1/2 hour meeting, and a clear agenda on your part, you can get the necessary advice you're looking for. If by any chance you are a named beneficiary be sure that the will and/or trust does not include an "In-Terrrorem" clause within the document if such a clause actually exists, what it means that if anyone files claim against the estate, executors, trust or trustees they will automatically forfeit any right to any benefits under the document and will be deemed to have died prior to the death of the testator. If you think you have a legitimate claim please retain company counsel to at least determine whether she feels you have a case at all. Good Luck
