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 are currently representing individuals on behalf of themselves and a class of purchasers of a 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. Our attorneys are also representing a purchaser of a pet from one of the largest national pet store retailers, who received a certificate stating the dog was healthy, however he soon died after being brought home. This class action, Cisneros v. Petland, Inc., et al., brings claims of racketeering violations against the national retailer, franchise and third party claims administrator. We are also representing pet owners who purchased a flea and tick medication that did not disclose health risks in Palmieri v. Intervet, Inc.
We 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).
