Your nephew may be correct, depending on how the Will reads. You state that everything was left to you. If this is correct and no one contests this (your brothers may have claims), nothing goes to the nephew. On the other hand, you also state everything was left evenly. If that is so, unless the Will says something different, the nephew takes his deceased father's share. This is a response to an Internet question and no documents were provided. The reply is not intended to be legal advice or as creating an attorney-client relationship.
