Q: In Alabama if probate closed in July 2019 shouldn’t the lawyer have disgust the money by now? And
How much money the lawyer put into his personal account? He said it was what the accident insurance paid but we never seen proof of how much
A: Your question bridges four categories and it would be best for an attorney who is knowledgeable in Estate/Probate matters to address the estate-related aspect of it. As for the personal injury-based aspect of your question, it shouldn't be a problem for an attorney who represented a plaintiff in an injury case to provide an accounting to someone who has a legal right to see that information. Personal injury attorney's closing statement, copy of insurance company check, deposit tickets into attorney escrow/IOLA account, receipts for case disbursements, and copies of checks issued on those funds from attorney account would answer the question of what the insurance paid, how the funds were allocated, and provide proof thereof. Good luck
