It's Time to Bark Back with Boston Dog Lawyers, the New Voice for Our Pets

Share Article

There is a new law firm dedicated to defending the rights of responsible dog owners in Massachusetts and beyond. Boston Dog Lawyers specializes in handling dangerous dog hearings and pet custody disputes.

For too long the loudest voices in the room at dog hearings have been winning.

Jeremy Cohen may be the one man in America who has established a law practice that concentrates solely on defending people’s pets. From dog bite complaints, condo association rules, illegal seizure of companion animals and pet custody issues, Boston Dog Lawyers challenges the status quo and ensures due process. The mission is to protect the interests of companion animals who, without an advocate, could be treated simply as personal property, rather than as a precious part of someone’s family.

For example, without providing a requisite hearing, many municipal officials may decide to euthanize a dog accused of biting, despite that the dog is without fault.

“I’ve witnessed a complete disregard for constitutional rights. Often, even if a hearing is arranged, people with the loudest voices or most recognized faces may induce a local board to decide, unfairly, against the dog,” explains Cohen. The sad outcome: a dog labeled as dangerous or put to death, needlessly.

Boston Dog Lawyers is devoted to nationwide prevention of such injustice. The firm’s attorneys also hope to expand existing law, by elevating the legal status of companion animals, from that of objects to the sentient beings they undeniably are. Attorney Cohen advocates that companion animals have ‘best interests’ deserving of thoughtful examination.

“A pet’s future should rest on more than a mere sales receipt or similar bare-bones evidence of ownership,” says Cohen.

Dog owners have been seeking the counsel of Attorney Jeremy Cohen since 2008 and now he has founded a law firm that will focus on the legal needs that arise for pet owners nationwide. Boston Dog Lawyers have a vast network of attorneys, behaviorists, veterinarians, trainers and investigators to overpower decision makers with facts and reason. Cohen, a dog owner himself, believes that "for too long the loudest voices in the room at dog hearings have been winning." It's time that dog owners take full advantage of their constitutional rights to fair and impartial hearings and its time that the individuals in positions of power take dog cases more serious.

Changes in the law may evolve slowly, but with Boston Dog Lawyers, every dog can have his day — in court!
