If the amount of $333,000 is the correct amount, this would not be federal estate tax, but rather state or local. My advise would be to contact an attorney, which is sounds like your friend has done.

There is in all probability nothing that can be done now, except pay what is owed. The time to change ownership, plan, etc. is well before death. Some aspects have look back periods as long as 3 years in the case of medicade.
