Customer Question
My broher died in...

My broher died in 2011 in Huntsville, Ala,but I found out about earlier in the evening., 6 years later. They didn't attempt to notify his family and cremated him without asking the family. Do I have a case?

Lawyer's Assistant: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?

Alabama

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I found a notice on Tributes.com .

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I found a note to contact me on his facebook page which I left for him back in 2011, and my name and phone number was in his phone.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
