improper handling of estate

I am very unhappy with the handling of my mothers estate, by both the executors nad the attorney. Do I have any recourse? My mother passed away 3 yrs. ago. There still has been no inventory of assests filed. Trust funds were sey up for each grandchild, seven of these trusts have been paid out, with no one recieving a formal accounting. Neither of the executors/trustees are on speaking terms with the rest of the family. I hired an attorney to help me, but the lawyer for the estate never responded to any of his letters. Because the trust for my children is under $5000.00 my attorney did not wish to continue. He wasn't getting any responses anyway, I don't blame him. What recourse might I have at this point? I do not wish to see these 2 oversee the trusts for my children as they are all minors and the will states that the trusts do not dissolve until the youngest of my kids turns 25, that's not for another 22 years.I will do anything at this point, even if I have to do all the research myself, and try to file anything with surrogate court on my own. thank you.
