A Law Office Dedicated to Child & Animal Welfare

Rocky Mountain Legal Center for Child & Animal Welfare is a unique law firm offering a full spectrum of legal services related strictly to the welfare and interest of children and animals. While Child Welfare Law is progressing from a widely accepted practice to a legal specialization, Animal Welfare Law hasn’t enjoyed as much acceptance in state or federal court houses. However, these times are rapidly changing and many lawyers throughout the United States are delving into Animal Law in one way or another.  

Some animal lawyers distance themselves from the term “animal rights,” seeing themselves, instead, as working within the existing legal system to gain protection for animals. Others are pursuing more sweeping changes and questioning the age-old legal boundaries between animals and humans, a controversial and divisive issue.

In addition to pursuing sweeping changes and questioning legal boundaries, our attorneys are also prepared to question traditional societal ideas by proposing and arguing humane notions and employing innovate legal strategy. The Center further benefits human and animal clients alike by using the latest technology and internet resources to compete in a rapidly changing legal environment. Its smaller size allows for more flexibility, personal attention and affordability than a larger firm can offer.
