Legal Question

Asked on: 10/09/13, 5:56 pm

My family has a trust with my parents listed as the trustees, settlors, and beneficiaries, and me, my sister, and my nieces are listed as contingent beneficiaries. The trustees are egregiously mismanaging the trust, and I want to obtain a full accounting, but the attorney who wrote the trust stated that only the trustees, settlors, and beneficiaries are able to request an accounting, and that even if I can prove egregious mismanagement of funds, I as the contingent beneficiary cannot have an attorney put in a motion for an accounting. Is this correct? Is there any way to combat this?
