Animal Law

A niche and focus for L. Turner Law, P.A. is animal law. Our dedication to the household pets that enrich and fulfill our lives is boundless, and we fight diligently and zealously to give a voice to those who cannot speak for themselves. For many, pets are family, and the defense of their family members is not made less important by the presence of fur. Thousands will be expended on a pet over its lifetime and if something happens to affect the span or quality of that lifetime, there are consequences.

Veterinary Malpractice

It is called ‘the practice of medicine’ for a reason: sometimes, the doctors and specialists who treat our beloved pets make mistakes. Critical tests may be forgotten, steps of treatment may be missed or charts may be mixed up and mis-labeled. Overworked nurses and staff can make improper notations with deadly consequences. Despite the intent, accidents can happen and you should know what can be done about it. If the improper actions of a veterinarian have resulted in the suffering or death of your pet, you should be compensated for both your trauma and for that of your pet. An attorney can consult experts to help assess what, if any, missteps occurred during the timeframe of a veterinarians care for your pet.

Dog Bite Defense

Many attorneys will tell you that dog bites are cut and dry; if you own a dog and that dog bites someone’s person or property (ie: other dogs or cats), you are liable. But there are mitigating circumstances that can reduce or eliminate your liability all together. People with ill intent or the desire for a quick pay day may fake or exaggerate injuries, or even provoke the dog to bite. Where a dog bite occurs and what the circumstances are matter greatly, and your case may not be as cut and dry as some might like you to think. An attorney can evaluate your case  and present you with options to reduce or eliminate your liability.

Puppy Lemon Law

There are many reasons some people choose to purchase a puppy; companionship, breeding or the desire to have a pet with particular personality traits. These pets come with big price tags, and sometimes the purchase price is just the beginning. Disreputable pet stores may buy puppies from irresponsible breeders who do not practice sanitary maintenance or care for the puppies during formative weeks after birth. A puppy may become gravely ill or even die only hours or days after purchase. Other puppies may form hereditary or congenital defects as they age from babies to adolescents. These sick or deformed puppies may cost you thousands to care for and treat, and greedy pet stores may shrug and tell you “tough luck” when you call to complain or seek reimbursement. Do not let pet stores bully you; Florida law provides rights and remedies for you and your new puppy, and L. Turner Law, P.A. can help explain them to you.

Pet Store and Groomer Negligence

Dropping off your pet for boarding while you go on vacation or travel for business should be a simple matter. Your pet should be safe in a facility that advertises overnight, shot term or long term pet boarding. Similarly, stores or facilities that provide and advertise for pet grooming have a responsibility to hire responsible, trained professionals to pamper your pet. But some big chain pet stores hire whoever walks through their door, and do not properly vet the young or inexperienced employees that will be looking after your dog or cat. These stories have become all too common, and many of these stores are on notice that there is a problem in their facilities. Take note of your pets appearance and behavior, and if you see or feel that there is a problem, talk to a lawyer. 

L. Turner Law’s animal division can assist you giving your beloved pet a voice and:

  • Reimbursement of veterinary bills and debts
  • Negotiating Settlements
  • Compensation for your pain and mental anguish or your pets diminished quality of life

Client Testimonials

“Lauren has been an absolute life saver in creating my business. I had hired several other attorney’s and as a new business I was being treated as just that. I decided to let Lauren give me a second opinion and it wound up being the best decision for us! Not only were her fees more reasonable, she did more in two weeks that I had received in months from others. Thank you is an understatement and I will refer and recommend her for anyone needing help with business contracts or agreements."

“Lauren Turner is an excellent example of what an attorney should be. Lauren is always available and has gone the extra mile to ensure that all my needs have been met.”.

Janos V

“Knowledgeable, caring and professional.
Nichole Turner helped with my grandparents’ Power of Attorny recently. She made my family and I feel very cared for and was amazing with my aging relatives. Her work was so thoughtful and thorough that my family and I were very clear on all aspects of the process. I would only use Ms. Turner in the future..”

Samantha M

Ms. Turner recently represented my rescue organization and I’m so incredibly thankful for her. My fellow volunteers are so incredibly thankful for her, as well. She listened intently during our first conversation as I cried and explained what was happening, she talked me through panic attacks, and gave me detailed explanations regarding what she was going to do for my organization and why.
It was rare that Ms. Turner didn’t answer when I called or didn’t respond to a text almost right away. If she missed my call or text, she called me back or responded to my text in about 30 minutes or less. Knowing she’d absolutely get back to me as soon as she could was comforting. She NEVER made me feel like speaking to me often was bothersome and ALWAYS made me feel like defending my organization was very important. She was encouraging and put my mind at ease with her strength as an attorney.
Ms. Turner is so passionate about what she does and obviously works hard for her clients. I HIGHLY recommend her!

Nicole A

200%! Absolutely! I recommend L. Turner Law! A competent sharp motivated professional. Compassionate, but tough! I’m a registered nurse that struggles with a serious disability, PTSD. I have been harassed and targeted by the HOA regarding my service dog, who happens to have her own struggles as a senior former shelter dumped overly bred dog with a few disabilities too, namely Lupus, and back and neck problems that cause her gait to wobble and she falls often. We’re both helping each other cope, care, heal, and are supporting one another. Complicated case, many details, but L. Turner LAW is quick to figure out the correct legal action and implements it quickly. Fair pricing. And most importantly, L. Turner Law truly cares about animals and related injustices! I’ve had to hire a handful of attorneys in my lifetime, she is by far above and beyond what I could ever hope for. So grateful to have her on my side!
