About me

I am an animal attorney.  Animal law encompasses many fields of law (constitutional, family, criminal, civil, contracts, property, administrative, trust/estates, etc).  To state it briefly, I help people if their animals have been harmed.  I also help rescues, sanctuaries, and other animal entities with animal issues (for instance, reviewing an adoption contract for a rescue group).  I love animals and am passionate about helping others who also love animals.  In addition to a full-time animal law practice, I am also an Adjunct Professor of Law teaching Animal Law at UNC School of Law.
