I'm not even sure what sort of lawyer I need or how to find

I'm not even sure what sort of lawyer I need or how to find one in Indianapolisl, or if I even have a case.Last year, August 4th, my brother commited suicide (in Indianapolis) Although I live in Chicago,we were close and it has taken awhile for me to start seeking legal help. I've been devastated by his death. Both our parents are deceased and he wasn't married (his girlfriend had killed herself a month earlier) and does not have any children. We have siblings but they are older and he didn't communicate with them-only me. He suffered off and on,with major depression. After losing his girlfriend, things became much worse. He shared a house with a friend, who, the weekend before, had taken him to two different hospitals (I had his friend write the details of what happened as he was the one who drove him to the hospitals and also found him when he hung himself.My brother did what he was told to do, go to the nearest emergency room, and he tried but was turned away by three different hospitals. The detective at the scene found admittance papers in the trash. The papers said 'Suicide Ideation' on them. he kept them and they are at the Indpls. Legal Dept.I feel this was egregious and unconscionable. I cannot imagine how hopeless he felt after trying for days just to be admitted. The 'system' not only failed him-they, I believe, are somewhat responsible for his losing all hope and ending his life.Why tell people who are aware enough to know they are going to harm themselves and do what they are told to do-go to the ER- and then refuse to help them??I knew none of this was going on until it was too late but I'm still here and he needs someone to fight for him.There has to be something I can do. PLEASE help. Thanks-Lisa

Settled wrongful death case, part of settlement was a $2000

Settled wrongful death case for minors, part of settlement was a $2000 check each month from annuity company in my name to raise kids on, rest is tied up in trusts and structured settlements for them. Now hateful judge is wanting me to spend only $800 of $2000 have to ask court permission to touch other $1200 each month, bank says no, can't follow that order because annuity and direct deposit for the $2000 is in my name only. The settlement that was approved specifically says that. One attorney says only spend the $800, my other says copy the check and spend what I need. I just don't want to get in major trouble
