I know that my Grandmother left a trust and a gas lease for both my sister and I. The gas lease had been split up between us but my question is who or where would I find how to aquire information regarding my trust.

Lawyer's Assistant: Since estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Oklahoma

Lawyer's Assistant: What documents or supporting evidence do you have?

I do know that when we split the gas transfer to Chesapeake, it was included in the documents

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Happy holidays. A trust is a private document and not publicly filed. The trust however should be in the hands of the lawyer who prepared it and the trustee named. Either should disclose the document and terms. If they refuse, A lawyer letter from a local lawyer can be effective in several ways. It can avoid costly litigation and help bring about a settlement. It also helps organize the claim and if it goes to court shows the judge you tried in good faith to resolve it!Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding “yes” or “acceptable”

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
