My wealthy mother recently passed. Her husband had her will

My wealthy mother recently passed. Her husband had her will changed three days before she passed. There was a notary and one witness. This is in WA state. She was under hospice care at the time and taking morphine. It is clear she was not coherent. The result is her husband now controls millions of dollars from my mom's estate which apparently is in a trust. Am I am the only child of my mom. What rights do I have and what can I do?JA: Since estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: WashingtonJA: What documents or supporting evidence do you have?Customer: I have the will, which has her scribbled signature and the list of witnesses - where the notary included himself then scratched it out. I have text messages from the step daughter in law saying my mom hadn't eaten, drank or had urine output in 4 days. I saw my mom two days after the will was changed and she was incoherent and never recovered.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: My mom had stage 4 metastatic lung cancer. When she was in the hospital, her husband had the notary - with no witnesses - have my mom sign papers signing over the last of her significant fortune. She later told me she did it because she was tired of him badgering her. She was on pain meds when she signed the documents and remembered very little about her month plus stay in the hospital when she finally released herself and went home to die. There is a witness to this who is very credible.
