You need to get to an attorney to talk about this, without delay. One place you can find a wills and estates lawyer in your area is our website, http://attorneypages.com
Ordinarily, the fact that you did not file your claim on time would be the end of the story. But there are some ways to get around that, depending on exactly what you can or cannot prove about what your brother said to you, that caused you to not file the formal claim. You do need a lawyer, because this is likely to be difficult at best.
