Mom has me and brother on deed of house but her will states property and estate goes to my dad so does it go to my dad.
The answer to your question depends entirely on the language of the deed. Specifically, it depends on the tenancy the deed creates. For instance, a "tenancy in common" is devisable, and can be passed by a testator. However, an attempt to devise a "joint tenancy" is ineffective -- the interest held by the decedant passes (by operation of law, without any additional paperwork) to the living co-tenant at the moment of death (and so there is nothing to devise when the will is administered).

The admissibility of evidence is rarely a "yes" or "no" question -- the answer depends entirely on the circumstances around the nature of the item, and the reason for which it is being offered to the court. Article 5 of the Maryland Rules contains the rules of evidence, which are voluminous. The subject is generally taught for 6-12 months in law school. I don't recommend attempting to learn the rules yourself, overnight. Consult with an attorney who can help you protect your rights and your assets.See question

This is a substantial amount of money. You need an attorney to negotiate on your behalf. Any agreement to pay must be vetted by an attorney and be in writing to be enforceable.

Is it legal for my psychologist to release my conversations with her without my permission? Can I sue her for malpractice? What type of lawyer do I need?
It depends entirely on the circumstances surrounding the disclosure. For instance, mental health care professionals are required to make disclosures if you've made a credible threat against the life of another. Was there a consummated doctor/patient relationship?

You absolutely can still be found guilty. The State intends to use other evidence to satisfy its burden. You need a trial attorney in the courtroom to beat the charges.
