Vehicle seizure - Owner/Defendant dies - what next? Login/Join

We've got a seizure on a nice vehicle. The driver/owner/defendant had pretty much a drug store in the vehicle. He gave a confession. But he died after being served with the seizure petition and after he filed an answer but before the forfeiture was completed and before he was convicted of the underlying criminal offenses. The probate lawyer for the estate is apparently wanting to spend some estate assets by way of attorney's fees and is "threatening" that this matter must now be litigated in probate court in a neighboring county. Has anyone handled something of this nature? My civil litigation days were decades ago and my probate court days never even happened. Thanks. (I'm posting this simultaneously on the criminal and civil forums)
