Hello, how are you today?
My name is ***** ***** I am going to assist with your query. Let me just read your post.
Things may be a bit slower today as it is a weekend, but please be assured I will get back to you with a response as soon as I can.
Is this in England?
I'm not available for calls - that's an automated site pop up.
Is this solicitor in England? If yes, can you give me their name.
You said 'solicitors'. They don't have solicitors in the US.
Probate, however, has its fees for lawyers taken from the estate - the beneficiaries do not have to pay anything over themselves before inheritances are paid.
I suspect you may be being scammed.
Can I clarify anything for you?
You can find a list of the American Bar Directories here: https://www.americanbar.org/groups/legal_services/flh-home/flh-bar-directories-and-lawyer-finders/
However, the easiest method of discovering it is a scam, is whether you are being asked to find the money to help this person get the inheritance. If you are, then it's more than likely a scam as no beneficiary of a will has to pay the lawyer's fee before inheriting. That doesn't happen anywhere in the world as far as I am aware. The fees for the lawyers always come out of the estate before the beneficiaries get their inheritance.
