Internet Defamation

Online Defamation Cases

We are one of the few Internet Defamation attorneys who have actually taken cases through a full trial and have prevailed. We are also one of the few online libel lawyers who have actually obtained permanent injunctions forcing the authors of defamatory postings to remove them from the Internet. Due to their implications on the First Amendment's Free Speech protections, permanent injunctions are rarely granted by courts. We have obtained them and know how to give you the best chance to stop unlawful defamation that may be disguised as free speech.
