I have represented or provided animal law consultations to hundreds of people over the past 8 years. If you hire me for an initial consultation, I will be thorough and will tell you exactly how I assess your pet legal problem. I do not believe in sugar coating bad news. I have seen and handled so many different types of pet/livestock cases that I have a different perspective from the generalist who dabbles in animal law. I endeavor to give you as many low-cost options as I can, including do-it-yourself if that is what you can afford. My goal is to help you do the right thing for your pet. During your consultation, we will discuss whether you want to hire me to represent you. If we both agree to move forward with representation, I will draft an engagement agreement for you to review. Often my consultation will give you the peace of mind or instructions you need to move forward without an attorney. Everything we discussed will remain confidential whether you retain me to represent you or not. These are some of the legal issues for which I have represented clients or provided legal advice about: Criminal Defense: dog bites, "dangerous dog" designation cases, restricted (banned) breed, animal control violations, etc. (largest area of practice). Civil litigation: custody disputes, replevin (court order of possession for wrongfully held pets), veterinary malpractice, negligence, breach of contact (second largest area of practice). Second opinions for represented individuals. Specialized consultation services/pro hac vice representation to lawyers, including out of state attorneys. Transactional: demand letter, contracts (buyer/breeder, pet adoption from rescue), pet custody agreements. Administrative: Licensure, PACFA compliance, inspections and record keeping. I have also represented disabled individuals in need of assistance animals in housing or in public. View More ?

Practice Areas


  • Credit Cards Accepted
  • Rates, Retainers and Additional Information
    I have specialized in this field for eight of my 21 year legal career. When deciding whom to chose for advice, remember the adage "you get what you pay for". My initial consultations start at $250. If retained, my hourly rate starts at $185 (nonprofits) up to $200. Animal Law is considered a specialty because it is both vast and obscure. The field includes any type of legal matter, whether it be criminal, civil, administrative or transactional, that affects the rights, standing and/or welfare of an animal or its guardian or third parties. It is a relatively new area of the law where sparse case and statutory law exists in terms of defining, establishing and protecting the welfare of animals and legal rights and responsibilities of their guardians or owners. As a lawyer who practices animal law exclusively, with a emphasis on protecting pets, I use the tools that the legal system provides to give animals a voice in both the litigation and transactional forums.
