I am unsure if the letter was forged by an employee of the attorney or another party. Should I obtain my own attorney to handle this or go to the attorney the document came from first?

An Alabama attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. It depends what the document you mention is.

What do you mean by codical? There is no such word. Do you mean codicil? That is an amendment to a will. Usually, a codicil must be executed with the same formalities as a will. Or do you mean just a code? That would be the statutes of your state, and yes each state has statutes.
