If I am named in a will as a beneficiary, do I need an attorney?

Question: If I am named in a will as a beneficiary, do I need an attorney?

Answer: If you are named in the will as a beneficiary, you do not necessarily need an attorney. The probate court will oversee the administration of the estate of the decedent, and you will be able to review the assets, the debts, and ask questions to the executor in order to determine whether or not you need to consult an attorney if you have any concerns regarding the proper administration of the estate.
