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.
Juliet Piccone has specialized as a Colorado pet attorney since 2012. Pet legal services vary from civil lawsuits for for breach of contract or for return of a pet that is being kept by someone unlawfully, other custody issues, incidents of wrongful death or injury of a pet, veterinarian malpractice, criminal defense at vicious/dangerous dog hearings, defense of restricted breed/breed discriminatory law citations, and transactional issues such as drafting estates & trusts and facilitating non-profit formation and organizational governance. We also provide second opinions and consultations.
