Legal Question

Asked on: 9/29/13, 9:00 am

We are in the process of settling an estate in the state of California. I received a copy of the expenses from the attorney and the executor. I noticed that the executor charged the same amount in expenses as the attorney. When I asked the executor about this, they said they were allowed to claim the same amount in expenses as the attorney. I know they receive the same fee, based on the value of the estate, but the same amount in fees seems weird. The attorney will have a lot more fees than the executor. So is the executor allowed to received the same amount in EXPENSES, not their fee, as the attorney. Thanks.
