How to get a lawyer to act.

I am the personal representative for my aunt who died last December. According to her will, the money left in her estate is to be distributed to three heirs. This is taking place in Oregon where all that's needed is the processing of a small estates affidavit by the court. The small amount of money involved does not require it to go through probate. I contacted a local lawyer in December 2017 who agreed to take care of this. But now the lawyer doesn't respond to my emails or answer my phone calls. I live across country and cannot just drop in to his office. My question is why after almost 8 months, this routine and simple procedure could be taking so long and what can I do to get him to speed things up.
