Attorneys Specializing In Animals
Where can I find an attorney who has experience in issues involving animals?
The ASPCA Legal Department provides counsel to the ASPCA and cannot give out legal advice to or act as an attorney for outside organizations or individuals. We do, however, offer information on resources nationwide that may be helpful in resolving problems.
Please note that while the ASPCA does not endorse any of the following organizations, they may be able to refer you to a lawyer with animal law experience in your area:
