Even if you don't owe a lot of estate tax and have a lawyer help plan every aspect of your will and estate, estates still mean job security for lawyers. I hate to think how much my sister-in-law paid those lazy scum who helped drag out an uncontested will for two whole years,

There's a gaping hole in this story. I've administered two uncontested wills from a distance, neither simple, and both closed the day the law allowed, which was a long way shy of 2 years. Someone dropped the ball other than the lawyers.
