From our “Ask a Question” mailbag: I am the co-executor of my mother’s Lehigh County, Pennsylvania estate, along with her attorney. What fee can he charge?
First, if your mother’s attorney is serving as the executor and will also be providing your mother’s estate legal services in Lehigh County, the attorney should not be charging both fees:
an executor’s fee and
a fee for legal services based solely on a percentage of the estate.
