I am an artist in New Mexico. I was supported by a Forbes

Customer Question

I am an artist in New Mexico. I was supported by a Forbes Billionaire patron, Elizabeth S. Wiskemann, for 21 years. She died in Oct 2013. Her daughters never notified me. I found out online. I feel sure that she would leave me an inheritance. I am in touch with an Estate Attorney in Sacramento. He is asking for a $10,000. deposit to get a copy of the deceased Trust to see if am listed as a beneficiary. I can't afford this fee.
The Wiskemann daughters have avoided any contact with me for some reason I don't understand. They all have my artwork in their homes that their mother purchased from me. This makes me wonder if Elizabeth left me a lot of money and her three daughters don't want me to know. They each ended up with Franklin Resources Stock worth around 20 million each.
