Neil Abramson was born in the Bronx in 1964. He graduated from the Cornell School of Industrial and Labor Relations and received his law degree from Northwestern University. He is a partner in a large Manhattan law firm, where he has the opportunity to work on animal rights and animal welfare issues on a pro bono basis. He has been active in animal rights/animal welfare circles for over two decades, having served on the Board of Directors of the Animal Legal Defense Fund and been recognized for his animal legal work by the ASPCA.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio recently appointed Neil to be his designee Board Member to the Board of Directors of the Animal Care Centers of New York, the entity responsible for running the City’s animal shelters and adoption centers and one of the largest animal welfare organizations in the country.
JUST LIFE is Neil’s second novel. His first, the widely acclaimed and bestselling UNSAID, was published in 2011.
