Legal Question in Wills and Trusts in Florida

My Father died, and everything was left to my mother. She gave a family business to my brother. When she died she took that into account and left the remainder of her estate 70/30. The business failed under my brother's watch. He feels that he is entitled to 50/50 of the remaining estate. I feel that the will should stand as he got an early inheritance with the gift of the business. Who is right?

I agree with you. So did your mother.

If there is a Will, that will prevail unless somehow the Will is stricken, but that is very difficult to do.
