Dog Bite Defense Lawyer
A dog bites for a variety of reasons. Your typically friendly companion may have been provoked, felt threatened, or responding to pain.
I understand the difficult circumstances a dog bite can impose on an owner—sometimes going as far as to the court system. The opposing party may want your dog detained—or possibly even euthanized.
This is extremely frightening, as your dog is a member of your family. You can’t bear the thought of parting ways under such unexpected circumstances—you may possibly even be under the impression that the bite was justifiable, given the situation.
You know your friend is a not a “dangerous dog” at heart—but are uncertain what legal actions can protect him or her.
That’s where I come in. As a dog trainer myself, I understand the behaviors—both the tendencies and anomalies—that canines exhibit. I can help you and your family exercise your right to protect your dog’s freedom.
If your dog has been accused of biting or attacking a child, adult, cat, or another dog, contact me at my Alexandria animal law office today. I can help guide you through this difficult time, applying my experience as a legal professional, CPDT-KA, and CNWI.
Your dog deserves a voice. Allow the Law Office of Heidi Meinzer, PLLC to help you and your canine friend today.
