We have a history of representing clients in both the defense and prosecution of defamation claims. John B.

Gordon Liddy in a decade-long legal battle involving key political figures from the Watergate scandal and achieved a record-setting verdict for a physician smeared by false allegations. Our commitment extends to defending fundamental First Amendment rights, demonstrated in the successful representation of Martha McSally challenging the Defense Department’s abaya policy.

Understand Your Rights And Remedies In Defamation Cases

Defamation is the act of communicating false statements about a person that injure their reputation. Common scenarios necessitating a defamation lawsuit include false accusations in the media, damaging lies spread by individuals or business competitors and harmful misrepresentations on social media platforms. When your character and integrity are unjustly called into question, taking legal action can be the most effective recourse to restore your standing, seek justice and obtain compensation.
