I am so sorry that you have lost your mother. Peace and best wishes to you and your family.

As to your specific question, do you want the lawyer to help your father in a claim against the at-fault party or to help him with the financial/legal stuff of becoming a widower? I suspect it is the former, but often, you would want a different lawyer for each type of requirement.

Assuming you don't have any friends or co-workers who might be able to make a recommendation, you could try a local law school or legal aid society, either of which may have a referral service or check your State's bar association or lawyer regulatory body.

Here's a link to Nolo that has a discussion on finding a good lawyer:
