I have specialized in Colorado animal law since 2012 and represented or provided animal law consultations to hundreds of people over the years. 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.
Civil litigation: custody disputes, replevin (court order of possession for wrongfully held pets), veterinary malpractice, negligence, civil rights, disability law, breach of contact.
Second opinions for represented individuals. Consulting with other lawyers, including out of state attorneys. Transactional: demand letter, contracts, pet custody agreements. Administrative: Licensure, PACFA compliance, inspections and record keeping.
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.
Juliet and the Piccone Law firm are amazing. I worked with Juliet for about 6 months after my dog got into some trouble, and I never doubted my decision. She was incredibly knowledgeable about animal law specifically, and wonderful to work with. You can tell that Juliet truly cares about what she is doing, and she's fighting with you (not just collecting a check). Every time we were hit with a roadblock, she fought back with two more strategies. I went from being told my dog was going to be taken away from me (AKA euthanized) to getting to keep him and having all charges dropped. If you are in any type of scenario involving your animals and the law DO NOT HESITATE to hire her. Do not go into any situation by yourself; hire the expert. The court will not be honest with you, and it is dangerous to go in there without someone who knows what they are talking about... and actually cares about your situation. I never doubted my decision once. I owe my dog's life to Juliet, and I say a silent thank you to her almost every day and know just how lucky I am that my dog wasn't taken away from me. Juliet is the best!!
Just WOW!! Juliet is very knowledgeable and approachable regarding her specialty in law. She was straight forward with her advice. She knows the Colorado statutes. I would absolutely use her again and recommend her to anyone who needs this type of legal service.
Attorney Piccone is extremely passionate when it comes to saving the lives of innocent dogs and other animals. She has the skill and expertise to prevail in most cases and is a fierce fighter against kill shelters like Aurora whose sole goal is to kill as many dogs as they can. If you are seeking an Attorney to save your fur baby's life, call this firm. She is the best in the state!!!!
A compassionate and experienced professional who is in this to help dogs and their owners navigate an unfortunate legal system. I've seen Juliet work tirelessly to help her clients save their dogs -- and many of those cases have been turned around in their favor! My husband and I work closely with The Piccone Law Firm, and have referred her to several of our dog training aggression clients. Highly recommended!
