Helping animals and their human guardians and working for animal rights
You can find a competent lawyer who handles cases involving harm to animals of all kinds. The dogs, cats, horses, and other species that often share our daily lives are unfortunately all too often hurt, killed, or interfered with by others. But when harm to an animal happens, there may be something that the law can do to fix or make up for the wrong.
A legal system built by human beings frequently has little to say about nonhuman animals, so animal law cases sometimes present cutting-edge legal issues. Just a few examples of animal law matters are disputes over the custody of companion animals, equine liability, discrimination based on use of service or emotional assistance animals, veterinary malpractice, dangerous animal-related products like feed or treats that injure or kill, and negligence by boarding kennels or stables.
