HIGH PRAISE FOR FREEMAN & CO. AS SOLICITOR WINS ANIMAL WELFARE CASE
Rachel Fletcher of celebrity lawyer Nick Freeman’s firm, Freeman & Co. has highlighted that their firm has a strong affiliation with animal welfare rights. The following statement is from a recent client of Freeman & Co. who was represented by solicitor, Rachel Fletcher. The case revolved around allegations regrading animal welfare and those allegations, if proved would have had a profound effect on both the client and his business.
“I Would just like to thank Rachel for the service she gave in a case brought against me. It was an animal welfare case which may have put both my good name and business into jeopardy if the outcome has not been a successful one.
Rachel handled the whole case with the greatest discretion, integrity and professionalism.
From the very first conversation to the last she kept me informed and up to date with developments of the case and brought forward experts unmatched in their field who overshadowed the prosecution in expertise and ability.
I investigated many solicitors to defend me but Rachel stood out and looking back in he-insight saw why. Thank you Rachel, look forward to not having my name on a file upon your desk.”

STAFFYS AND BAD PRESS
Since the British Dangerous Dogs Act made it illegal to own breeds such as a Pit Bull Terrier, the press have reported many cases of attacks by Staffordshire Bull Terriers or dogs described as a Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross on children, adults and family pets. There are fears that breeders are renaming Pit Bull Terriers as Staffys to avoid prosecution.
The breed is a bit of a contradiction and that is a big part of the problem. Their natures are loving but they are perceived with physical similarities with banned breeds such as Pit Bulls which has resulted in them being tarnished with the “dangerous dogs“ label. Because of their appearance, certain types of people think they have themselves a fierce dog when in fact they could not be further from the truth. As a result of this misguided association, they have become a macho fashion accessory amongst some young men.
Staffys, like all dogs, can be aggressive and dangerous. Many reported cases of Staffys attacking children have been trained by their owner to be hostile and build up their strength, making them hang off sticks, making them increase the power of their jaws. This fuels the negative image of the dogs and makes them harder to re-home when they are dumped by their owners. For many cats and dogs homes (including Battersea in London, Berkshire and Kent) Staffys make up 1/3 of all dogs handled.
The Staffy’s reputation is largely based on hearsay and on the way it looks rather than the way it acts. Staffys can often be identified incorrectly.
