43 Questions Answered
- Q. My neighbor kicked my dog, what action should i need to do to? Should i file case against him?
- A: In NY, dogs are chattel (property) and you might be able to recover the cost of veterinarian services for damages. Assuming no demonstrable injury, depending on the circumstances, you can report the neighbor to the local humane authority. It really depends on the circumstances if you want to escalate the matter. Under the Agriculture and Markets Law, animal cruelty might apply but that is up to the investigation by the humane officer.
- Q. My 18 yr old son has an impending case. If he receives probation, would he be prohibited from traveling to another state
- A: Typically, yes. Probationers are disallowed from leaving the county without permission from their probation department.
- Q. How do I find a lawyer that does pro bono work?
- A: Contact the local legal aid office, the local bar association, and any special interest group which might be interested in your case.
