Skilled Equine Lawyers Provide Specialized Representation
When it comes to the equine industry, many other law firms offer only select services to their clients or handle a very small number of related cases. Hey & Hey Attorneys at Law is a comprehensive resource for equine law services and represents clients in all matters related to horses, including drafting contracts, sales and lease disputes, disciplinary matters with the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF), and equine litigation. Randy Hey and Polly Hey Panos are skilled equine lawyers based in Portola Valley, California, who serve the specialized needs of riders, horse owners, and stable owners.
About Our Law Firm

Randy Hey is an experienced trial attorney who has practiced law for 45 years. Randy’s in-depth experience includes both criminal and civil cases, and he represents clients in trials relating to criminal defense, nursing home law, and equine law.
Equine attorney Polly Hey Panos has been riding since she was a child. In addition to being involved with horses for 38 years, she has competed on the hunter-jumper show circuit for 35 years.

Hey & Hey Attorneys at Law is a true family-run firm. Randy's wife has been involved in the horse industry for her whole life, and acted as a sound advisor to her husband on many matters. Our attorneys stay up-to-date with the current trends in the equine industry by attending the National Equine Law Conference in Lexington, KY.
Our Scope of Services
The lawyers at Hey & Hey Attorneys focus exclusively on the legal aspects of the horse industry. We draft, review, and negotiate contracts for the purchase, sale, lease, and rental of horses for both equine professionals and non-professionals. This is a small but important step towards limiting liability and preventing legal issues and lawsuits in the future.
With an in-depth knowledge of both the horse industry and related legal matters, we can build a strong case and successfully represent you.
We provide equine litigation support when a lawsuit is brought, whether due to a horse or rider being injured, a horse being abandoned, or when a client is alleged to have violated USEF rules. With in-depth knowledge of both the horse industry and the law, we can build a strong case and successfully represent you.
Our lawyers also help clients with federal and international tax law, foreign investment reporting, tax planning, audit defense, and other legal issues related to the horse industry.
