I am the executrix of my brother's estate.

More details to this question:
He owns property but has not paid real estate taxes for years and the taxing bodies are now filing for a sheriff sale. The estate has no money but I am required to hire an attorney and accountant to file tax returns, etc. Is there a pro bono network for this type of thing?

Have you offer the will for probate?  If your brother's estate is insolvent, you may to simply not commence an estate administration at all.  I'm not aware of a pro bono service for insolvent estates. 

I recommend that you seek out a local attorney for a more in depth discussion of the matter. I do not recommend that you take any action steps without such a consult. Act quickly because by waiting, you may lose certain rights and remedies available to you.

Real Estate
Real estate attorneys can help individuals, families and small business with all property-related legal issues. Buyers and sellers of residential and commercial real estate should work with an attorney to negotiate the terms of agreement; draft and review the contract; review related paperwork (such as loan agreements); clear existing liens on a property; and attend the closing. Lawyers can also assist property owners with addressing zoning/rezoning issues and appealing property tax assessment. Landlords and tenants should work with real estate law firms to draft and review lease agreement, handle eviction proceedings and resolve landlord-tenant disputes.
