Try to find a lawyer in the jurisdiction where the estate is filed, for convenience. Most estate lawyers understand special needs trusts. You cannot solicit (and attorneys cannot solicit) business on this site per the site rules. You can, however, call lawyers who answer questions on this site, and discuss your case, or use the search function for locating a lawyer in your area to call. Then you can make arrangements to meet with and hire a lawyer.

The answer to the question should be found in the contract that you signed.

A "typical" Maryland board of realtors contract often specifies that both parties need to sign off on a release before the broker can release the earnest money deposit. Unfortunately if the contract requires both signatures to release and one party refuses to sign the contract may provide that the next step is mediation.
