The Internet has unlocked the flood gates for individuals and businesses to share their opinions with a global audience.

Google and other search engines sometimes fall victim to dishonest and unscrupulous posters. Sometimes, they even rank defamatory remarks higher than company blogs or legitimate news releases.

Fighting Back Against Defamation of Character
On the Internet, it is not always easy to determine the poster's identity. Bloggers and posters are often known to keep their identity hidden through using anonymous screen names or e-mail addresses. In some circumstances, we consult forensic computer experts to help identify the wrongdoers and allow us to prosecute civil claims.
In short, we can track who is defaming you. Once the poster is identified, we proceed with a cease and desist demand letter, strongly encouraging the Web poster to voluntarily remove the content or be faced with a lawsuit. In some cases, the damage has already been done — a lawsuit is inevitable. Other times, we are forced to serve a subpoena upon the Internet Service Provider to determine the poster's identity. In all cases, we do as thorough an investigation as possible so we are fully prepared for litigation.
Our law firm's detailed approach often prompts at-fault parties to put an end to their misconduct. If a legal proceeding is initiated, we are prepared to seek maximum compensation for compensatory and punitive damages through mediation, arbitration or trial.
