Crooked lawyers are paying kickbacks to funeral directors for referring their customers to the lawyer. This practice is unethical and is a crime. Here are the top three signs that a funeral director is being paid an illegal commission for recommending a lawyer.
- The funeral home suggests that they “know somebody” who would be willing to pay for the funeral
- The funeral home recommends a specific lawyer to the family
- The funeral director tries to call the lawyer’s office on the phone while you are at the funeral home.
