Animal Law

Animal Law is a diverse and relatively new area of practice. Representing individuals or entities relating to all aspects of human and animal interaction requires drawing from a wide range of knowledge and experience like civil litigation, family law, landlord-tenant law, criminal law, insurance, business formation and estate planning. Topics include Fair Housing statutes as they pertain to companion and service animals, animal protection issues such as protection from cruelty, overcrowding, neglect and exploitation, consumer protection in the sale or treatment of pets, domestic animal control statutes, ordinances and resolutions, landowner liability, debt collection for boarding and other services rendered for household pets and farm animals and horses to name a few.
