We represent individuals, who have been damaged as a result of a company’s false advertising or misrepresentations regarding a product or service involving animals. These class actions may include violations of consumer protection laws, fraud, racketeering, breach of contract and warranty, antitrust conspiracies and other types of claims.
We represented purchasers of a purportedly high-end pet food that was falsely advertised as "human grade" and "USDA inspected" and led to the sickness and death of plaintiffs' dog in Mael, et al. v. Evanger's Dog and Cat Food Co., Inc., et al. This resulting in a settlement providing refunds for products and reimbursement of veterinarian expenses. We are currently representing pet owners who purchased a flea and tick medication that did not disclose health risks in Palmieri v. Intervet, Inc.
We additionally team up with animal advocates and non-profit organizations to help fight for the rights of pet owners and animals. Our partner, Jessica Sleater, has been a long-time animal advocate and had rescue dogs (pictured here).
