Fathers remains left at funeral home 18 (May 2017) months. No notification to family. Same funeral home buried mother after in Sept 2019 but family found out about father when went to gravesite and he wasnt there
I know this was probably very upsetting. The issue with an attorney is that the "value" from a court judgment standpoint is not going to be very large. I suggested previously that you ask for a partial refund. If you want more, consider small claims court.
This is not really a probate law issue. I am changing the category of your question to "Lawsuits & Disputes" so you will get more responses.

It depends on whether you are willing to pay for the attorney up front and by the hour, or whether you want the attorney to work on credit (contingency). If the former, it should not be hard. If the latter, then you just keep calling around, but expect to make a lot of calls...
My responses on this website do not constitute a consultation, nor do they establish an attorney-client relationship. Only a written retention agreement signed by client and myself will establish an attorney-client relationship. Please do not message or phone me for additional advice as the discussions would be outside this forum and would not be visible to the public (the exception being for serious prospective clients).
