Do you feel that you or your business has recently been defamed—whether by the media, by a rival business owner or another individual? Defamation, libel, and slander can be incredibly damaging to your reputation or the reputation of your business. These matters should be taken seriously and dealt with through the proper legal channels. However, the fact is that many people are unsure what exactly constitutes defamation or libel. Especially in the era of social media, the lines between criticism and slander have become more difficult to discern than ever before.
Consulting a defamation lawyer can tell you a lot about your case swiftly. Did what you experienced meet the textbook definitions of verbal defamation or written slander (also known as libel)? Moreover, what is your best legal recourse for dealing with the situation?
