What Is Defamation?

Defamation occurs when another individual makes a false statement about you, and in turn, that statement causes harm. Defamation is also sometimes called libel or slander. There are several ways defamation can take place, especially in our online world. Common ways slander occurs online include:

  • Sending inaccurate statements through emails
  • Writing slanderous material in personal blog posts
  • Composing status updates on various social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter
  • Leaving incorrect information on virtual boards and web postings

Fighting Against Defamatory Remarks

If someone is threatening your character by spreading statements about you, we are here to help. In order to fight against these statements, we must clearly prove that what the individual is saying is false. The second aspect we must prove is that the individual said these things with malicious and intentionally.

One difficult matter to consider is if the statements are presented as fact or opinion. Our lawyer will work with you to protect your rights and interests. We will launch an investigation into the remarks and create a strategic defense on your behalf. We will show that their false statements subjected you to harm — either by provoking hatred, ridicule or contempt or through business efforts.
