If I have a complaint against a
funeral director, embalmer, or a funeral establishment who should I contact?
If there are reasonable grounds for belief that a violation may have occurred the matter will be forwarded to the State Attorney General. It may be set for a hearing before the Board.
There is a possibility that the person who filed the complaint and other parties will need to appear at the hearing, but this is not always the case. You will be given ample notice should your presence at the hearing be required.
This process may take up to three months or longer in certain situations.
The Board will make findings of fact and conclusions of law based on the evidence presented at the hearing and will enter a order. The maximum penalty the Board may impose is a $10,000 fine and revocation of license.
The Board does not have the authority to award damages, settle contractual disputes, or offer legal advise. Contact a private attorney regarding these matters.

digger who should I contact?
