If you are a beneficiary of the Trust or a former trustee of the Trust, that Trust might pay your legal fees under certain circumstances.

Your answer is "maybe". This kind of litigation is best done with the help of a qualified attorney, and your question taken up with that individual based on the specific facts of your case.
