Philadelphia, PA, May 9, 2023 — The Animal Law Firm (ALF), which in 2022 became the first national law firm representing pets and their people, today announced that ALF and owner Kristina Bergsten have been nominated for “Best Law Firm” in Metro Philly’s Best contest for 2023. Bergsten and her team are proud to be nominated and encourage voters to register their support for animal and owners’ rights in Philadelphia by choosing The Animal Law Firm when voting.
Participants can vote for ALF once per day at the Metro Philly’s Best website until voting closes on August 7. Simply scroll to the “Law Firm” category to find Kristina Bergsten – The Animal Law Firm.
Metro Philly’s Best, run by the popular Metro Philadelphia news publication, is an annual contest where voters determine the “best” businesses local to Philadelphia in dozens of categories. Though there will only be one winner per category, simply being nominated for this competitive contest is a signal of the public’s trust in a business or individual, as nominations are made by the public itself.
The Animal Law Firm, which operates an office in the Philadelphia metro to help animals and their owners navigate often misunderstood animal laws, has been growing rapidly as the rising need for representation for pets, service animals, and owners hits a new high and is still unmet by traditional law offices. ALF proudly serves the whole of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, as well as the state of Colorado out west, growing as it aims to meet the call for animal law services.
“Philadelphia has always supported the Animal Law Firm, and to witness their gratitude through this award nomination only underscores our mission,” said Bergsten, attorney and owner of The Animal Law Firm. “Pets and service animals truly are members of our family, we need to ensure they have the same passionate defense under the law as their human counterparts. As a society, we still have further to go toward protecting animals, but this nomination is a positive sign that we’re on the right track.”
The Animal Law Firm, the first national law firm representing pets and their people, fights for the underdog. Operating as Colorado, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey’s premier animal attorneys, ALF handles cases involving dog bite defense, service animal representation, veterinary malpractice, pet custody, pet trusts, civil rights as they pertain to animals and animal ownership, and many other areas of animal law. The lawyers of The Animal Law Firm know how important our pets, service animals, and working animals are to us, and that’s why they use the tools of the justice system to help create a world in which animal welfare is the primary consideration in animal cases.
ALF’s animal lawyers hold themselves to the highest standards of performance and ethics—and it shows in their winning track record.
