If you are having troubles with a funeral home what type of attorney would you need? 34 Answers as of September 24, 2012I feel as though I was mentally troubled with a funeral home because they kept putting things off and I, as well as someone else who does not work with the funeral home but does business with them, has said this establishment was untruthful. They have tried to rip me off money and even didn't give me certain things I had ordered correctly, as well as put things off a long time and lied. I would like to sue them but I don't know what kind of lawyer to get. I feel mentally disturbed and it has been 10 months and everything should have already been done.

Try an internet search. Use search terms including the name of your city and "lawyer" and "funeral home". Then call a few of them up and ask if they have ever taken a case such as this. You could also go to the County Clerk's Office and find out if they've ever been sued before, see who that lawyer was.

I suggest you write down everything that happened in proper time order. Names, times, dates etc. will be very difficult to remember later. In six month, if you still feel outraged, then call an attorney. In the meantime, pay the bill so you don't look like a cheapskate.

You need to be a bit more specific. There are no facts given that would indicate that you have a cause of action against the funeral home, much less one for the intentional infliction of emotional distress. In this type of suit the conduct must be outrageous and the effect must be severe. You would need a civil litigation attorney.

You have not told me how they "ripped you off" and so I cannot tell you if you can sue them. You can sue in Small Claims Court for up to $5,000 without a lawyer. You can Google "business law attorney" in your city and call some lawyers for a free consultation over the phone. They will tell you if the funeral home has done anything wrong and if you have a case against them that can be proven in a court of law.

You need to see what's called a plaintiff's lawyer, someone who specializes in representing people who want to sue someone for money. Some states require physical injury in order to recover damages, while other states only require mental or emotional injury to recover. A plaintiff's attorney can tell you what the law is in your state and what your chances are of recovery.

Sounds like a civil issue to me. Did you work for the funeral home or just do business with them? The information you provided leaves out a lot of details. If you worked for them, contact an employment law lawyer. Fair warning, however, unless you can show extensive damages, then you probably don't have a case.
