Animal Law

We know that not every animal owner understands the statutes impacting the animals they own or board; that is one of the reasons we take the time to ensure you understand appropriate laws and the potential outcome of any disputes or transactions you are involved in.

Our services can include drafting and reviewing contracts for the purchase, sale, and lease of livestock; representation in disputes and litigation related to animal transactions and injuries; and liability incurred by owners, trainers, and boarders. We have helped residents across Montana with a variety of animal legal issues, so if you are facing a legal challenge, or require a consultation about legal disputes involving animals, contact Rideg Law Office, PLLC.
