Legal Question

Asked on: 7/22/13, 8:46 pm

Hello, I was 1 of 4 beneficiaries of a releative's estate that has been closed and the funds were distributed last year. Our attorney was the trustee of my releative's estate. Our attorney at the closing of the my relative's estate was supposed to put $1500.00 in an escrow account for real estate taxes on my relative home and failed to do so. Now the real estate tax bill has been receive for last year and the new owner of the home is looking for the funds. I also paid the attorney $495.00 for the closing. Question, am I still liable for the monies not deposited in the escrow, and should I be able to receive a refund on the attorney fees since the services billed were not the services that were completed?
