A Funeral Directive appoints a person or several persons to hold the power to organize your funeral and deposition of your remains. This person authorizes a memorial, says who can and cannot attend your funeral and if you are cremated or buried at sea.
In a world of second marriages and blended families, appointing a responsible, diplomatic Funeral Director can make the difference between peace in the family and years of conflict. Further, if you have specific requests around your funeral or burial, you are relying on this person to use their force of will to make these plans a reality.
We make it a practice to try and get clients to make this appointment in their Wills. This person can be a spouse or the executor, but this is not a requirement.

Peter and his staff are very responsive and always willing to help my clients and in a cost efficient manner.
I saw four lawyers and was told by all of them; I should just forget contesting my mother's will. I knew what happened, but it is very hard to prove undue influence. I contacted the Law Offices of Peter L. Klenk & Associates. Attorney Amanda DiChello took my case. They were very honest and upfront about what would be involved trying to prove what I knew was true. Attorney DiChello may be young but she is extremely knowledgeable and skilled. She listened and understood what I conveyed to her. She knew exactly what information to use and crafted an outstanding interrogatory and many powerful depositions. Attorney DiChello understood the various emotional feelings this case created for my family and me; she was always there for us with a kind and encouraging word. We went to trial. The amount of work which she and her Paralegal did for the trial was incredible. They both knew my case inside and out! Attorney DiChello's powerful interrogative and thinking skills produced a positive outcome. Attorney DiChello did what other seasoned lawyers said was impossible!
