Lawyer kills girlfriend’s dog and is disbarred.

October 4th, 2017 Uncategorized

Attorney Anthony Pastor was convicted of a felony after he was accused of killing his girlfriend’s 4 year old dog, Snoopy.  He repeatedly hit Snoopy who died in August of 2016 of head injuries and broken ribs. The judge said that Pastor had shown “incomprehensible violence” and that the dog was in excruciating pain before it died.  The attorney, after beating the dog, sat at his computer.  The dog laid expiring next to him.  What precipitated the violent outburst was Snoopy peeing on the floor.  Who can imagine such cruelty!

The disbarred attorney is serving a two year jail sentence.  His license was revoked upon conviction.  His prominent criminal defense attorney said that his client was bullied when at boarding school and asked the Court for leniency.  No leniency was given.  He received full punishment.  The prosecutors also interviewed Pastor’s ex-fiancé who said that her dog had also been killed in a similar manner but no charges were pressed.  Pastor is now on the animal abuse registry.  He had to be given a protective order because of the many death threats he received.  One of the jurors felt sorry for the attorney’s son as well as for Snoopy.  Whether it is animal abuse, child abuse or spousal abuse, there should be zero tolerance. The judge is commended for sending a loud and clear message.

Steve Hymowitz an extraordinary attorney!!!!
He was the 5 th attorney that I had called after I was In a bad car accident that I sustained lifetime injuries from. All the other attorneys said “no, sorry I can’t help you since you had a fender bender years ago with some minor injuries when someone hit you at a red light.
I was flabbergasted because the injuries I had prior, were so minimal . The debilitating and multiple issues I had in this accident, I knew would be lifetime struggle but Nobody would listen to me.
So calling Mr Hymowitz’s office, I was told it would be very tough and he would do extensive research regarding all aspects of this case and fight every detail on my behalf …and he did!!!!! His Practice being in New York and New Jersey was a plus for my case.

Lynn, his right hand paralegal, ( who guided me every step of the way) told me through this whole process you watch, “he’s amazing, he is an extraordinary attorney and you’ll be amazed at what he could do ….. she was right!!!!
Lynn made this process so much easier with her continued communication to me, her empathy and her tolerance!
I have been in the medical and business field for years prior to the accident. I feel that I was very lucky and blessed to have this very professional, respectful, and very educated Gentleman as my warrior who truly fought so hard for me!!! I loved that he always kept me in the loop with great communication!
I found him to be a very caring human being!

My settlement was more than I could’ve imagined!!
And that’s because he proved the truth of my injuries!

I am forever grateful for Steve Hymowitz!
