Summary

Most people consider their pets as more than just possessions, but rather as family members and best friends. When situations arise where they might lose them, it is unbearable. Most people never think about needing a lawyer to save their pet, and when they start searching, they find few attorneys with any real experience in animal law. This is because very few lawyers devote their lives to saving animals, and few focus their law practice on animals and the rights of their owners.

Our legal practice has involved pet owners facing eviction because of their dog or cat, bite incidents where dogs are seized and ordered to be killed, criminal charges involving dogs and feeding stray animals, and ex-spouses and others who hijack a beloved pet. We represent animal rescues, fosters and adopters. We also provide litigation strategies, techniques and our animal law experience to attorneys throughout the country in state and federal matters. All of these situations are often emergencies, and finding an attorney who handles them can be daunting.

A lot of our work involves defending dogs involved in bite incidents who are unjustly facing death. Their owners are pre-judged by a system which ignores the rights they deserve concerning their cherished pets. We are proud our animal rights litigation work is at the forefront of shaping the direction of animal law. In zealously representing the interests of our clients and their animals, we are advancing the rights of all animals as well.

We welcome inquiries should you have an issue with a companion animal which we may be able to provide assistance. Many thanks in advance for thinking of the faithful and loyal creature in your life who depends on you.
