The Piccone Law Firm, LLC d/b/a Colorado Animal Attorneys was founded in 2013 by Colorado licensed attorney Juliet Piccone to provide personalized, affordable pet/animal related legal services for guardians and their animals. Colorado Animal Attorneys is one of only two law firms in CO that provide full time, exclusively animal law related legal services. It pays to hire an experienced animal attorney.

After graduating from Wheat Ridge Sr. High School in 1992, Ms. Piccone enrolled in The University of Colorado Boulder where she majored in Political Science. She then continued her education at the University of Colorado School of Law in Boulder, CO. After graduating with her Juris Doctor from CU Law in 1999, she embarked on her legal career. Ms. Piccone clerked for a district court judge in the 8th Judicial District. Upon completion of her clerkship, Ms. Piccone became a skilled and aggressive civil litigator in the field of insurance defense. In that capacity she evaluated cases, counseled clients, researched and wrote pleadings and motions, conducted all aspects of discovery and disclosure, conducted hearings, prepared for and assisted with trials and worked on post-trial matters and appeals. Ms. Piccone merged her passion for animals with her legal talents in 2012 by entering the field of animal law. She quickly learned that this field requires familiarity with virtually every subcategory of law (criminal law, civil law including animal custody, torts, contracts, civil rights, replevin, and also the area of administrative law). In 2013 Ms. Piccone decided to open her own animal law practice. She pulls from her litigation background to provide aggressive representation to both pet and person. She represents both plaintiffs and defendants and also provides initial consultations to numerous individuals who need to discuss whether to pursue litigation or other avenues for a particular issue. Ms. Piccone lives in Aurora with her rescued cats and dogs.

  • Rates, Retainers and Additional Information
    I do not offer free consultations because I am an expert in animal law. Other attorneys who offer free consults do not have my years of experience, so you get what you pay for, and a free consult is usually worthless. I do offer discounts on my normal hourly rate to non-profits, veterans and active service members.

Q. How can I get my puppy back if he was stolen from me?
A: Gather up all the proof you have that the puppy is yours (where did you get him from, any vet records, a registered microchip would be great, photos, videos, witnesses) The police may only get involved if your puppy is worth enough for them to file misdemeanor or felony theft charges so keep that in mind. If they won’t help, I’d reach out to local media/problem solvers before either trying to file your own replevin lawsuit or hiring a lawyer because those suits are extremely complicated and time consuming. I’ve filed many, gone all the way to trial on several and it’s costly to hire someone who knows what she’s doing.
Q. So I just encountered the animal control . And we’ll they said one of my dogs were being beaten and malnourished.
A: Animal control officers can and will use deception while investing any number of complaints, even anonymous ones. I’ve had clients who were told the exact same thing, only to show their dog(s) to AC and have it seized for a completely different reason, for example to enforce a pit bull ban or to “ID” the dogs for an attack on a cat that the dogs were completely innocent of. (Just two examples that come to mind). If AC has credible evidence of a violation for which they can obtain a search and seizure warrant, they will get it. Hopefully you didn’t already say too much. Exercise your right to remain silent.
Q. can animale control come 3 weeks after my dog allegiedly attacked a pony for quorintine
A: They are not quarantining your dogs, rabies is the only disease they would “quarantine” a dog for and the limit is 10 days from the bite. After 10 days you’re dog would be dead or extremely sick if it had rabies. My guess is they told you its a quarantine to get you to hand over the dog(s) but in reality they have more sinister motivations.
