Once you plead guilty to an offence involving an attack by your dog, the court or council can destroy your dog.
Proper legal representation at a contested destruction application can make the difference between your dog coming home or being destroyed.
There are different ways of dealing with a destruction order made by a court and a destruction decision by a council, different time limits involved and different procedures. The process of dealing with a council destruction decision is particularly complex and requires a lawyer with substantial relevant experience in administrative law and in advising and negotiating the process of challenging a council decision to destroy a dog.
Melke Legal has the experience to know what issues are relevant to these processes and what non-legal assistance you may also need.
