Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered

Q. Do you use an EIN number or grantor’s SS# for a trust brokerage acct?
A: If you mean a "grantor's trust" like a "living trust" that is subject to distributions of income and principal by the grantor at any time, then use the grantor's SS#.
Q. My husband and sister in law are co trustees of their mothers (who recently passed away) trust. Their mother's attorney
A: The attorney may be concerned about privilege, since the lawyer-client privilege might not be effective where a third party (you) was involved in discussions. That aside, since your husband is a trustee, he can choose his own lawyer (who may or not be joint with his sister's lawyer). In fact, I am not sure what the mother's lawyer's position in this whole thing is.
