Dog Liability Defense Services in Massachusetts and Throughout the Country
Pet owners understand the joy an animal can bring to a household. Therefore, when your faithful dog has been ordered to be euthanized because of an alleged attack, bite or nuisance claim, it can be devastating. The good news is that with the help of our experienced Boston animal liability defense attorney, you can fight to overturn an order to put your pet to sleep.
At Cohen & Associates, P.C., we represent dog owners nationwide who have been informed that their dogs must be euthanized to preserve the safety of others. We understand how important pets are to you and your family. We have a proven track record of saving that friendship.
Dedicated Animal Liability Defense Representation
Each animal liability defense case is unique. When you retain our services, the first thing we will do is perform a thorough investigation into the alleged dog bite, attack or nuisance claim. Often, dog aggression stems from:
- Someone provoking the animal — such as a neighbor child poking the dog with a stick or throwing rocks at the pet
- Someone under the influence of illegal substances causing an unusual reaction — it's been proven that dogs react differently to people using drugs and alcohol
Dog attacks, bites and nuisance complaints have become more and more common in the news. However, at Cohen & Associates, P.C., we understand pets respond certain ways to outside influences, which should not cause them to lose their lives.
Your Dog Has the Right to Due Process
Most people don't realize that dogs have rights. In fact, many city ordinances mistakenly fail to notify owners that they are entitled to certain hearings before a dog is euthanized, which is a failure to provide you with your procedural due process rights. As your animal liability defense attorneys, we will argue against these unconstitutional municipal codes and procedures, seeking to overturn an order for euthanasia.
