This morning, someone asked me where they might find a vegan lawyer.. and I have no idea.

This dude is interested in pursuing a lawsuit against an unnamed government agency (involving the endangerment and deaths of animals, as well as physical injuries that he sustained.) He's hoping to find a vegan lawyer that would be willing to take on the case. If he can't find someone willing to take legal action on behalf of the animals, he'll settle for sueing only on his own behalf, and will donate any funds awarded in the suit to various animal rights organizations.

I've provided him with the contact info for Hetznecker (Hugs For Puppies' lawyer,) but he's hell bent on finding someone he can "relate to." If anyone knows of a lawyer who is veg*n or who, at the very least, understands and sympathizes with AR issues, please let me know.

I imagine that contacting other animal rights organizatins like IDA and stuff would help. They must have lawyers they can refer.

I know there are a few somewhat well-known ones in DC, but I don't know how much that would help someone in Pennsylvania. I can try to find links nonetheless.
