AZ Law Firm knows firsthand the love and joy associated with owning pets. Our Animal Rights attorneys have shared their lives with a variety of animals, including dogs, cats, horses, snakes, birds, fish, mice, and hamsters. That is why the attorneys at AZ Law Firm devote a portion of their law practice to protecting and advancing the interests of the animals that so deeply enrich our lives.
Many pet owners would be surprised at the breadth of Texas laws expressly pertaining to animals. The property code, family code, penal code, and civil practice and remedies code are just some of the statutes that speak directly to the issue of animals. And these laws will continue to expand and evolve as legislators, animal advocates, animal rights attorneys, and many others work to ensure that the rights and interests of owners and animals alike are recognized and protected.
Legal issues involving animals arise daily in areas such as landlord-tenant law, family law, probate law, personal injury law, and contracts law. Therefore, it is important, as a pet owner, to understand the rights and protections afforded you under current Texas law. If you are facing a legal dispute involving your animal, AZ Law Firm encourages you to seek the services of a licensed Texas attorney.
