Can an estate lawyer be sued?

Any lawyer can be sued. However, you would need to have a strong case with substantial enough damages to motivate another lawyer to represent you. You may also need to hire an attorney out of your area. If you think your lawyer did not perform his/her duty to you in a professional manner then you should start by making a complaint to your state disciplinary board. To find your state board search your state name and "lawyer disciplinary board". There may be a fund from which you can be reimbursed.
