How do I contest the proposed distribution of an estate?

I am named as the trustee and the sole remainder beneficiary of a testamentary trust created by a will that recently entered Virginia probate. The executor told me that I won't inherit because the gift lapsed due to the sole primary beneficiary of the trust predeceasing the testator. I know this wasn't the testator's intent to leave me out. I would like to contest the executor's distribution plan but don't know how and when to proceed. Also, since I live out of state, do I need a Virginia lawyer?
