A NEW BREED OF LAWYERS

We set out to make a living and learned we could make a difference.  

Boston Dog Lawyers has handled over 4,000 calls in 7 years and our lawyers are in court three or more times per week and it's all about pets.  Gradually we are becoming a national legal resource for pets, pet owners and pet businesses. Our effort involves dusting off old caselaw and arguing for new interpretations that reflect our community's modern identification with our companion animals.  

 

Part of our goal is to live and work in a place where legal issues regarding pets will be addressed in a consistent, predictable, and modern manner under the law.   

Our website invites you to read, listen and watch to learn about what we do, how we do it and for whom.  Contained here are more than 150 glimpses into what we do and nearly 250 stories about the pets we have represented. You can navigate to the "Our Work" tab and the "In the News" tab. 

 

There will soon be a tab providing tips to pet owners based on our experiences so that rights and protections are better understood.

At Boston Dog Lawyers we challenge courts, insurers, opposing lawyers and pet professionals to raise the legal status of pets to match how we all feel about them and how we invest in them.  Pets are big business and they and the people who own them deserve to have the laws protect them and compensate them.  That's what we fight for everyday through every case.
