New York Animal Custody Attorney

new york pet attorneyAll pet owners know that pets are people too. Although courts legally classify pets as property, there is a possible trend towards classifying animal custody as more than just a property right. In certain circumstances pet ownership in the event of a divorce or  breakup can be nearly as emotional as custody of a child. As I have enjoyed the company of the family dog I also understand the deep emotional tie that owners can have with their pets — which they consider to be family. These furry, feathered and scaled pets bring joy to our lives which is irreplaceable unlike a lamp or a couch. If you are seeking custody of your pet, let me help you.
