You would almost never want to consult an attorney regarding the content or the functions of these trusts, because they are written under common law, whereas attorneys, by definition, usually specialize in statutory law. They are dangerous because they are brainwashed by it and will not only fail to be of help regarding common law trusts, but they can actually cause harm by their misunderstanding of them and disinformation about them. Therefore it would be rare that you would ever want to consult an attorney regarding any trust business. If you do, it should focus on the transaction, whatever is the subject of the consultation, and NOT the content or design of the trust. Very little information about the structure of the trust should be given to any attorney -- as little as possible.
