Legal Question

Conflict of interests

A lawyer contacted me in regards to him taking over as legal council for a will of a relative of mine. A few days later I recieved a letter from the funeral home that burried my relative. They were trying to recover money owed to them for the funeral, as the will has not been settled yet, no one has been payed. I was informed if they did not recieve payment they will file with the courts. They were being represented by the same firm that was contacting me to represent the will. This sounds like a conflict of interest This sounds illegal. I am not letting them represent the will, but what other recourse might I have. Such actions should result in loss of Attorney priveledges in my opinion.
