Estate Planning Attorney
Yes, contact an estate planning attorney a.s.a.p. The attorney can assess your rights based on your facts and find out what the status of the sale of your home is. Most likely, there is an escrow company that is handling the transaction for the buyer and seller and it would be important to notify them immediately that you don't agree with selling the house. If they know there is a potential dispute, they may require a court order allowing the closing before they proceed as they could potentially face liability if they close knowing that there was a dispute about the trustee's authority to sell. It's really important that you speak to an attorney right away as the attorney can determine what your legal position is as it relates to the trust. I don't know your age, but if you are 60 years or older, you may also be protected by elder abuse laws.

You may need a trust and estate lawyer to file an injunction. But this is not a cheap process because of the time frames involved.

I agree that you need to talk with an attorney who works in estate planning or probate. But you need to act immediately in order to stop the sale. You can find an attorney in your area by hitting the "Find a Lawyer" tab at the top of the page. You can find one that could give you a free initial consultation to review your rights.
Use the find a lawyer tab on Avvo and contact an attorney immediately. You say it may already be too late, so I assume you have had notice of this sale for some time. Don't delay and have a copy of the trust ready. The only way to stop this is by acting fast and having a provision in the trust that allows you to.
