Will my documentation be accepted in probate court regarding the oral representations by my late father?

Question Details: My dad passed almost 2 years ago. Unfortunately, he never signed his Will. He was married to my stepmom who was fighitng me in court until she recently passed away. When the case started, I provided documentation from my dad's accountant and several other friends of my dad's to the judge stating that when my mom passed away, they were verifying that the house was supposed to be left to me. If I request for the judge to look at the statements provided, is there a chance that the judge will accept these statements since none of them could come to court and testify or would the documents be withheld in court because of state law?
