Re: “Lawyer and (animal) lover

My name is Pamella Kent. My daughter was murdered at her boyfriend's apartment. There has not yet been an indictment in the case but the boyfriend is a suspect. When my daughter died the boyfriend took her dog, Carmella to his mother's house. The dog is not nor was she ever his dog. As legal representative of my daughters estate Carmella should be with me. She may even have been in danger if left with him.
Even though I sought several times to retrieve Carmella with the help of the Arapahoe County Sheriffs Office I was told that this was a property issue and was for the court to decide. The boyfriend was claiming Carmella belonged to him.
Seeking help I was referred by a victims rights advocacy to The Animal Law Center where I spoke with Jay Swearingen. He Charged me a stiff fee for writing an ineffective letter to the boyfriends attorney. He then said he would take my case but that it would be very expensive. More than I could afford. So I went to another victims advocacy who referred me to The Piccone Law Firm.
Juliette Piccone immediately grasped the situation and took my case on a pro-bono basis. Though I have tried to pay her what I could for her services she has never asked for a penny.
Because of Juliette's legal expertise through this lengthy and complicated situation I now have Carmella with me. She has represented me at 4 court appearances, filed many motions and spent many hours of expert legal maneuvering.
The battle is not yet over. The boyfriend still wants the dog. We still have another hearing in the case. But judging by her legal abilities to this point I have every confidence in Juliette. I expect the best possible outcome with her at my side.

Re: “Lawyer and (animal) lover

My name is Pamela Kent. My daughter was murdered in her boyfriend's home. He has not yet been indicted but he had taken possession of her dog Carmella, and claimed her as his own. As legal representative of my daughter's estate Carmella should have gone to me. After seeking several times to have the Arapahoe County Sheriff get Carmalla back I was informed that this was a matter for the court to decide. So I sought help from a victims advocate who referred me to The Animal Law Center. I then went to their office and spoke with Jay Swearingen. He wrote an Ineffectual letter to the boyfriend's attorney for which he charged what I considered very high for the actual work he did. He said he would represent me in this case but that it would be very expensive. So I contacted another victims advocacy, Rocky Mountain Victims Law Clinic, who referred me to The Piccone Law Firm. Juliette Piccone Immediately saw that Carmella should be mine and that she may even have been in danger if left with the boyfriend. She took the case on a pro-bono agreement even though it has been a complicated and lengthy affair. I have given her what I could afford for her her legal expertise but she never asked for a penny. Through her considerable efforts (4 court hearings, Many motions to the court and many, many hours of legal maneuvering), I have Carmella back where she belongs. There is no one I would rather have at my side during such an emotionally stressed-filled legal situation, trying to protect an innocent little puppy from injustice and a possibly very dangerous situation. Juliette has done every possible thing she could to insure Carmella has a safe place to live, with her rightful owner. The legal battle is not over. The boyfriend stills claims Carmella, and we have another court hearing coming up soon. But I have complete confidence in Juliette's ability as an animal rights attorney and in her compassion for me in these trying times. With her help I know I can expect the best possible outcome for this dog and I.
