-- Although it is never a welcome prospect to deal with a cemetery
regarding the burial or cremation of a loved one, it is likely that we will all interact with a cemetery at some point in our lives.
In New York, cemeteries are governed primarily by Article 15 of the Not For Profit Corporation Law, subject to provisions of a host of other laws, including the Religious Corporations Law, the Public Health Law and General Business Law, and regulated closely by the Division of Cemeteries. This web of statutory and regulatory duties, responsibilities and powers is complex and the stakes are high: cemeteries must often go above and beyond their obligations under the law in order to treat your loved ones with the respect and care they deserve.
At the Law Offices of Mark A. Cuthbertson
, we are experienced in representing and advising cemeteries throughout New York. From the largest non-denominational cemetery in the state, Pinelawn Memorial Park in Suffolk County, to the smaller OceanView Cemetery in Staten Island, we regularly advise and advocate for cemeteries in the performance of their unique duties in our lives and under the law. Whether it is a real estate transaction, an internal corporate governance issue, a labor dispute, an interment or disinterment, or litigation with a third party, Law Offices of Mark A. Cuthbertson is well-versed in the intricacies of the law as it applies to cemeteries.
