A: Yes, you will need an attorney to represent you in Administration and Heirship proceedings. An administrator for the estate would need to be appointed to have the power to sale property. As for the bank account, the account set up would need to be reviewed to see who owed the account. please feel free to call our office to set up a free consultation to see if our firm might be a good fit for you. We wish you the best in this matter.
