How do I find out what was in my mother’s estate?

My mom passed and she left my kids and my brother the estate. My kids are to get 50% and my brother will get 50%. My brother is the executor. I know that she had stocks bonds in Trust for my kids. The lawyer only give me a copy of the Will and it did not state what she had in stocks and bonds in the Trust, plus in real estate. How do I find out exactly how much money was in the estate?
