What state to engage a lawyer for trust administration?

I live in Texas, my (surviving) parent and sibling live in Illinois. There is a living trust that has been set up, which I will become the successor trustee of in the event of my surviving parent's death, which is then intended to be divided 50/50 with my sibling. For many reasons, I expect interactions with my sibling regarding trust matters will be difficult or contested despite good faith on my part, and so I am interested in engaging an attorney immediately upon my parent's death to assist with these matters. If I engaged a lawyer to assist in trust administration, would I look for a lawyer in Texas or in Illinois?
