Questions frequently arise such as...

  • Who gets the pet in the event of a divorce or other type of relationship termination?
  • What happens when I board my pet and return to find it has fallen ill?
  • How can I provide for my pet after I am gone?
  • As a person with disabilities, what protections are afforded to me with respect to service animals?
  • How do animal insurance policies differ from human insurance policies?
  • What do I need to do to establish an animal rescue and what issues should I be thinking about once established?
  • Is the adoption contract for my pet binding?
  • What happens in the event my dog bites someone?
  • Am I entitled to compensation for the loss of my pet?

Animal law is a growing and emerging area of practice amongst the legal profession.  Many state bars, including Michigan's, have a section devoted to animal law. 

Animal law is all encompassing, touching upon nearly every other area of law, including:

  • personal injury
  • criminal
  • property
  • family
  • estate planning
  • insurance
  • and contract.
