How can beneficiaries obtain a copy of a Living Trust?

My sister & brother were named co-trustees of my parents living trust several years ago (my mother passed on 6 years ago, my father 4 years). They have not been forthcoming at all & ignored our requests for accounting records, estate paperwork etc. My brother & I would like to get a copy of the final trust papers (we were never given or even shown these at the time of my fathers passing). I contacted my parents lawyer (who is also my sisters lawyer) & was told that he couldn't give me copies, I would have to get them from one of the executors. I live in Iowa, the trust was filed in California & my two siblings also live there. There was a substantial amount of money/properties etc left to the four of us. What can I do, to obtain a copy of the living trust?
