To the best of our knowledge no B.C. lawyers have moved to Jungle Law
Group, a law firm in Kansas City, Missouri formed by engaged couple Lauren
Kruskall and Tristen Woods. As described in the ABA Journal, Kruskall
and Woods founded the firm “with the intent to advocate for animals in civil
and criminal court”, but “the duo also handles human cases such as traffic
citations and car crashes—advertised through eye-catching billboards and
TV commercials that have featured a loincloth-clad Woods and a furbikinied
Kruskall swinging on vines, riding a tiger and holding a sloth”.
