Hello, My name is Frederick (Captain US Army Retired) and I hail from New Jersey. I would like to take this opportunity to humbly ask for your attention in order to share with you a remarkable story. Back in November of 2013, I was in what appeared to be an almost hopeless and helpless situation. The situation started when I had raised money for an interstate transport for a rescued bait dog (named Stallone). The transport eminated from the Maricopa Arizona kill shelter and was planned to terminate with the dog coming here to me in New Jersey. Stallone was to come here and be with me as my therapy dog. I suffer from PTSD from my military service and loving companionship of animals has helped me beyond words.
Unfortunately, on the way back to New Jersey, the driver stopped by his home town of Aurora, Colorado for a pit stop. But the pit stop was in a town with a NO PIT BULL (BSL) ordinance. Long story short, Stallone was taken to a local dog park and fought with another dog. Fortunately, the other dog was not hurt badly. Stallone, due to the years of abuse he has endured, could not handle all that stimulus (from all those other dogs). Stallone was used as a bait dog, so understandably, when he saw and heard other dogs next to him, he was literally brought back to the horrific time in his life. As a veteran who also has PTSD, I know just a little about flashbacks and nightmares.
One would think that consideration would be given to Stallone due to his traumatic past, resulting in a fine issued. Consequently, because Stallone was “the wrong Breed”, instead of any consideration being given, Stallone had a very possible death sentence issued instead. Stallone was immediately confiscated and taken into an animal shelter over 2,000 miles away from me –facing a VERY DIRE future.
I was, theefore, extremely overwhelmed, not just emotionally but spiritually as well. I had no idea what my next course of action needed to be. Gratefully, I was referred to Ms. Juliet Piccone, and SHE DID have an idea. Actually, Ms. Piccone just did not have only an idea, Ms. Piccone HAD A GRAND STRATEGY. What then commenced was nothing short of amazing. First, she reached out to the other dog’s pet parents. She pleaded Stallone’s case and promised that any veterinary bills they would incur due to their dog’s injure would be covered. Second, Ms. Piccone helped formulate and then execute a public awareness campaign. This campaign was fought in the trenches, though both social media and old fashioned media (TV, Newspaper and Radio media). Thousands of people, including many fellow veterans, were reached and enlisted in the fight. The fight was not only for Stallone’s freedom but also for an nationwide educational awareness campaign on the NAZI-esque Breed Specific Laws and why they need to be repealed.
The day of the actual appearance at the Aurora Colorado Municipal Court was executed like a fine order of battle. Because, in fact, we were battling for this horribly abused dog’s very life. There were supporters, I counted at least 70 people in tow, immediately before the hearing. Many people were carrying signs replete with words of support and adorned with Stallone’s pictures. Second, all local news media were alerted and many were present. Inside the court room, Ms. Piccone helped fill up the chamber with supporters. Ms. Piccone, due to her very sincere outreach, had a letter of support we then gave the judge. This letter was from the pet parents of the dog that was injured. It was beautifully worded and pleaded for Stallone’s life. It was replete with a recently taken photo (of them with their recovering dog). Pictures really do tell a thousand words, especially to a judge!
The end result was that we won. It would have not been possible without Stallone's archangel, Juliet Piccone!

Juliet is our lawyer for a nonprofit animal rescue. She has helped us a countless amount of times and we couldn't be more grateful. She helped us create contracts that have successfully protected us a number of times. She has helped us take animals out of dangerous situations and more. I have attended some of her cases for others, and the work and passion she puts into these animals is truly inspiring. She will go the distance to make sure the right thing is done, which is one of the most admirable qualities you could ask for in a lawyer and a person in general.

Hire Juliet immediately prior to any hearings. Although Juliet wasn't able to get everything I wanted in regards to my emotional support dog, I realize it was a far fetch as I butchered the case prior to hiring her. Had I hired Juliet before the cities illegal hearing on my dog it not only would have been much cheaper but most likely would have been dismissed at the original illegal hearing. unfortunetly I was unable to do so but when I was able to do so, she was successful in saving my dog from murder, which was the upmost important thing to me. The fact that she does give military discount is amazing, and you can tell that she truly cares about the animals she is representing.

I endorse Juliet unreservedly. She is a bright, conscientious, caring and highly intelligent attorney, with extreme attention to detail. I have known Juliet since law school and hold her in high regard. I would recommend her to any employer or client fully.
