Protecting You Against Defamation, Both Offline and Online

For a statement or attack to be considered defamation, it must be untrue or a statement that is a reckless disregard for the truth, accusing someone of illegal or immoral conduct. Often clients come to us after a statement or published comment has caused ridicule, mental anguish or damage to the client’s reputation.

With the increased use of social media and online platforms, these situations occur via texting, the Internet or on social media platforms such as Facebook or Twitter posts. This content has the potential to become viral and widely distributed, making it that much more dangerous to the individual’s character, brand and reputation.

Other examples can include the defamation of another person in some sort of published manner, including print outlets, social media, newspapers, televisions, radio, third party or books. It can also include comments to a newspaper or media source about another person.

Our lawyers aggressively investigate the matter, determining all parties involved, as well as those that might hold a degree of third-party liability. We put together a suit on your behalf to correct the wrong and bring restitution.
