On May 3, 2021, News 12 reported “last week about the family [the deceased], who was buried at the cemetery on April 21. The family provided photos that showed [her] coffin uncovered and partially open four days later. The family says that they are not even sure if [her] body is still there.”
“We look forward to litigating this case to seek the appropriate relief for the families who have been impacted by these allegations and pushing for the answers they deserve,” said Joe Sauder of Sauder Schelkopf.
Sauder Schelkopf is a nationally recognized class action and personal injury law firm. The firm’s partners currently serve as court appointed lead counsel in courts across the country and have been selected by the National Trial Lawyers Association as some of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in Pennsylvania since 2012. The attorneys at Sauder Schelkopf have recovered over $500 million on behalf of their clients and class members.
Bochetto and Lentz has developed a niche in what has surprisingly become a burgeoning area of law. After representing a few clients, we learned that, despite conventional thinking, cemeteries, funeral homes and crematoriums are often not locally owned or non-profit based religious organizations. Instead, they are for profit enterprises often owned by large real estate trusts or publicly owned national — and even international — companies.
