Cambridge Pets Litigation Lawyer
While we are best known for our criminal defense successes, the Mahoney Criminal Defense Group maintains an active practice representing clients attempting to maintain or regain custody of domestic companion animals, such as dogs and cats. These cases present unique issues and challenges, as people, naturally, consider their pets as members of their families. We have represented clients attempting to reclaim possession of cats and dogs, as well as those trying to maintain custody of their pets.
Domestic companion animal custody cases are increasing, as families, former couples, and even neighbors battle over custody of pets. These disputes are often emotionally charged and draining for those involved. Not infrequently, they include allegations of crimes, such as larceny, and cruelty to animals, and disputes over veterinarian bills.
We treat these cases seriously. Our bonds with companion animals are real, deep, and meaningful.
Attorney Kevin J. Mahoney began his career serving as a Judicial Law Clerk to the Connecticut Superior Court working exclusively on civil litigation issues for the Superior Court Justices. As an associate of Lecomte, Emanuelson, Tick & Doyle, Mahoney won a verdict of $389,000.00 following a nine-day trial.
Many, if not most, Massachusetts civil litigators have tried few, if any, cases before juries. No lawyer, no matter how intellectually gifted or well-educated, can acquire the skills necessary to succeed at trial work absent practice. Attorney Mahoney’s trial skills were honed in hundreds of courtroom battles. He is, in fact, battletested.
