Fighting for our rights

Our Uncle passed away 9/2005 and left his will in the hands of his Sister in law(in her 80's) to be the sole independent executor. She received (thru the will)the 1/3 interest he had in the property she lived in which she has since sold and left town and the rest of his residuary estate was to be split in equal shares to his surviving neices & nephews she only gave 4 out of 5 of us $1. Well to this day she has avoided ALL request from the Courts & our attorney to show all documents for the estate and to turn over ALL estate $'s. We are at the point now that she has NOT complied with any civil court orders So we have just filed Breach of Fiduciary Duties against her & Civil Conspiracy against her daughter. When is enough enough and when does breaking the law come with punishment? She has from the very begining been very sneeky about answering our ?'s and the estate inventory/appraisement that she filed in 6/2007 showed over $200 thousand dollars that would be ours. Just tired of this run around day in and day out with NO end in sight. What are our rights? The estate is in Texas, we are in NJ and she has moved from TX to MA. I guess as the old saying goes don't trust any old ladys & I am losing my faith with the legal system
