How can I go about getting general information regarding a trust I have set up with an attorney who is unwilling to provide me with the info? Most importantly, I have not been told what I am being billed for the services.

Location: Maine  |  Law type: trusts & estate planning...

When I was in my early twenties my parents and I set up a trust with an attorney who was recommended by a family acquaintance. We went over the Irrevocable Trust paperwork, which outlined the basics, and I signed them. During this process, I asked what I would be billed for the services, and was told that it was a "fair price".

This was about five years ago, and I've been asking for a monthly, yearly, or total breakdown of billing every few months. Every time I ask, I'm told that they are "working on it". I have yet to receive even a single billing for services, and I have no idea how much money they are taking for themselves out of the trust account.

Aside from this, I have asked where my money is being invested, and I have received the same non-committal answers, and I have no idea as to how the money is being invested, nor do I know what is left in the account.

My parents, having helped set up the account, have been trying to gather the same information as I have with the same result.

Any help would be very appreciated. I am considering hiring another attorney to take over the trust, but I don't even know where to start.
