I am the only child my mom had. She passed away July 2012 (at the young age of 57), and it isn't known if she had a will or power of attorney, or life insurance. Prior to passing away, my mom lived with me for over a year until she sustained a spinal cord injury. She was placed into a nursing home in South Pittsburgh, TN, she lived there for several months until she was admitted into the hospital in Chattanooga, TN..where she later passed away. I have made attempts to get her personal belongings that 2 of her friends have but will not allow me to get them or have them. There are certain items that my mom gave to me & her 2 grandchildren. Also items that belonged to me that I gave her as gifts, & items that belonged to my deceased grandparents. What are my rights to her belongings?I am disabled, on a very low fixed income, so I need to know if there are any attorneys/lawyers that would be able to assist me on a income based fee or some kind of assistance. This is very important to me and my family, my mother was my best friend and is missed dearly. Her personal belongings consist of furniture, jewelry, clothing, baby grand piano, electric power wheel chair, kindle fire, several cooking items, tv's, possibly money she had saved in the nursing home, pictures, alot of items that are not replaceable and have alot of sentimental value.
