My sister and I are wrestling with this problem.

In my uncle's 1992 will, he parceled out his assets to myself and four nieces. Each one of us would get 1/5.

In 1998, his sister (my aunt) brought him, while he was suffering the effects of Parkinison induced dementia, to his long time attorney and had the will changed. Now three of the nieces (her kids) would get 1/3. My sister and I would get $1000. The estate at that time was worth at least $400,000.

My uncle died a few months ago. Now everything is coming to light. I've got the feeling that my sister and I are up the creek without the ol' paddle.

Any ideas out there? I know we should see an attorney, but what course of action could he take??

I'm really pessimistic on this whole thing. Need some specifics.
