I am sorry to learn about this situation, you can sue your brother's estate for "declaratory relief" under a cause of action for breach of contract.

However, this kind of dispute is much better resolved through mediation. Contact your local bar association and request referrals to mediators, a third party neutral can often help you reach a mutually agreeable resolution. Use the bar association's referrals to contact a mediator or two, the mediator will then contact the other party to set up a mediation session, and you can go from there - hopefully resulting in a formal or written settlement agreement, and save yourself the time and expense of litigation.
