You should retain your own attorney to make sure you receive the proper inheritance.
Attorney Slater is correct. Executors have to comply with the intestate succession laws. Unless they are appointed your guardians, they cannot withhold your legal share of the estate. Consult with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
