Portland Animal Law and Civil Rights Attorney
Oregon Lawyer for Civil and Constitutional Rights Related to Animals
Police may overreact and kill a family dog that posed no threat. A public housing authority may refuse to accommodate a service animal. Supporting a deeply held belief in animal rights or veganism by refusing to dissect may put a student’s educational record at risk.
Speaking or acting directly with animals’ interests in mind may also lead to rights being infringed or even criminal prosecution. Laws such as the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, for example, may be used against legitimate activists.
Businesses, employers, government agencies, and schools may all react to those who refuse to support animal cruelty by violating constitutional rights. If you feel that your civil rights have been violated in any way, we encourage you to contact us today for a free initial consultation.
