What is the best way to handle an insolvent estate?

Question Details:

My youngest brother died and my older brother is the executor. The estate is insolvent - no savings and around $24k in debt. There are a few personal belongings but they are not of much $ value. My older brother is working with an attorney, but the fees are adding up and we will have to pay them. Isn't there some other way to handle all of this?
