Adam helped me fight a dangerous dog appeal in Spokane County. I had called other law firms only to be denied. I was at a loss of what to do. It was a friend of mine who knew Adam and told me "he was good at what he does". Boy was she mistaken, he is GREAT at what he does! My German Shepherd means everything to me and this was not his fault. Adam has the knowledge of the law and love of animals to fight for them. It was knocked down to one year of potentially dangerous then to be dropped completely after that. We are so grateful for everything he did. He is the only name you need to know if your animal needs a lawyer. Adam, you are truly the best. THANK YOU!!!!!!

We had a very difficult situation with our dog, who bit a person in a fight or flight scenario. This is not vicious dog nor a breed that has any reputation for being vicious in any way shape or form. We appealed the vicious dog attack citation and I attempted to handle this alone until we lost the judgment. Adam calmed me down, fought for Sienna's rights, and did a great job of negotiating a settlement with King County Animal Control. He is efficient, readily knows how to work the system, and is mindful of his fees so you don't pay huge amounts and not get the outcome you want from an attorney who doesn't have Adam's level of expertise in animal rights. I don't believe you will find a more compassionate and fair attorney for your animal. He's the BEST!

I hired Adam to help regain custody and ownership of my pet "Spooky". My pet was out of my care for several years and I had lost hope of ever regaining him back- until I found Adam. I researched attorneys online and I found Adam to be the right fit for what I needed. He was quick to respond, we met and I knew he was going to get my pet for me. Adam is very knowledgeable in Animal Law and explained everything so I could understand what had to be done and how to do it. After a few trips to the courthouse, my case went to trial. We went we won!!!!! I now have my pet back after four years. It would not have been possible without Adams great legal skills. My Spooky and I are forever grateful!! Thanks, Adam.

Never dreamed I would need to hire an attorney for my dog, but I did have to and I was referred to this wonderful man. He worked very hard and was very knowledgeable when dealing with the county to appeal a dangerous dog declaration (DDD) my sweet 3 year old boy got for making his first and only mistake. Mr. Karp got the DDD down to a Potentially Dangerous Dog declaration, which is much easier to live with. Mr. Karp was very pleasant and nice to work with. I would recommend his services to anyone in need of animal law help. Thank you so much Adam!

His very deep knowledge of the cases and legislation, both locally and nationally, coupled with his extensive practical experience, and his obvious dedication and enthusiasm for his work, make Adam the "go-to" attorney of first resort for anyone seeking counsel in this particular area of the law. We are very grateful for Adam's patient counsel and great advice on each of the various matters we have brought to him. Recommended most whole-heartedly!

Adam really saved the day and our Roxy's life. I work with legal aid attorney's who told me if you need an animal rights attorney Adam is your guy. They were right! He was able to call the city out on their mistakes, in turn saving Roxy's life. She is a rescue, well on her way to rehabilitation thanks to Adam giving all of us a second chance.

I can't say enough good things about Adam. Our HOA had voted to implement a Pit Bull ban. We have rescued this breed of dog for many years. They are wonderful dogs and we would not be able to bring ourselves to own another breed. Adams advice for us was always right on. His communications on our behalf were also right on. We always felt like we were in th3e best of hands. His fee's are very reasonable and he did many things for us without even charging. Its hard to explain but just having this man on our side made us feel comforted and that we would win!! I can't say enough good things about Adam. He's the best lawyer ever!!!!

I'm a militant pedestrian and the loving owner of a Bernese Mt Dog. My dog is big so I did not understand why, while walking across a lane, he was hit by a slow moving car. My best guess is that the driver was not paying attention to the road. The driver promised at the time, to help pay for Remy's care, ($24,000+) but made excuses for 6 months why he couldn't come up with a single dollar. I finally had to find counsel to help me get justice for my dog. I called a number of law firms in Seattle and the only person they recommended for law involving animals was Adam Karp. I hired Adam and we began a six month process to get justice for my dog.
The motorist apparently was willing to say or do anything to avoid paying a settlement but Adam skillfully removed every obstacle and my dog did get justice. Throughout the process, Adam kept me informed and we worked well as a team. Adam was fastidious about sending me an accounting of how my money was being spent. He successfully got us into mediation so I didn't have to pay for trial. He negotiated a good settlement and then convinced my dog's vet insurance company that they should only demand a small fraction of the settlement. If my dog and I had to be so unlucky as to encounter a bad driver, we were at least lucky enough to have Adam as our lawyer. He did a great job for us.

Adam helped us when our nervous Chihuahua had a run in with an aggressive canvasser knocking on our door late at night. We didn't understand the law in our situation, but we knew it seemed wrong that someone could antagonize our dog and scare us late at night, and somehow we were the ones facing a fine from the city. Adam helped us understand our legal position and made a great case to the city attorney. The city attorney ended up dismissing our case, and we didn't even have to go to court.
He was extremely helpful, he responded immediately to any calls or emails about our situation, and he treated us with kindness and respect. I would highly recommend Adam, and have already told my friends to call him if they ever have an animal law question.
Thank you for all of your help, Adam!
