Funeral Advocates was formed to help people deal with the processes associated with the death of a loved one.

As a financial representative, Brian O’Laughlin, our founder, has helped hundreds of people with their financial security during life but when his father died in 1999, he realized planning extended beyond.

Brian took his mother to the funeral home where they were required to make many decisions, each one having financial ramifications. Not knowing “the rules” of funeral planning and the “market value” of the services, there were at the mercy of the man across the desk.

Brian recognized the need for an informed representative to advocate for his clients during this most vulnerable time of life, the death of a loved one. Brian O’Laughlin and the Funeral Advocates team have been providing advocacy services to clients and friends since 1999.
