Breeder, Owner & Handler Disputes

Skilled Counsel To Address Show Animal Breeder, Owner And Handler Disputes

A lot of time and energy goes into caring for and training a show animal. When you consider the expense of purchasing the animal from a reputable breeder and the amount of money spent showing the animal, it's easy to see why few people consider show animals to be just another pet – they are a major investment few are willing to just walk away from once the animal retires.

As an owner of purebreds himself, attorney Pedro A. Cofiño is familiar with the types of disputes that can arise between owners, handlers and breeders, and he knows the best course of action to resolving legal matters and protecting the best interests of his clients.

Protecting Your Rights And The Terms Of A Show Animal Contract


Not only is our firm skilled at drafting show animal contracts, we can also defend the rights of breeders, owners and handlers who believe the terms of their contract have been breached.

We will carefully review the terms of a contact — whether it's verbal or written — to establish grounds for a lawsuit. We will then consider all claims made regarding the animal and determine who has the right to ownership.

We will never waste your time. If you have a case,
we will tell you. If litigation is necessary, we will
get you through the process quickly without
jeopardizing your rights.
