Defamation and Similar Claims

I am experienced with defamation cases involving both public figures and nonpublic figures, libel per se, trade libel, slander in various contexts, business and employment disputes, and accusations leading to disciplinary or police action. I have dealt with cases involving internet postings, pamphlets and broadcast on radio, as well as oral statements in business settings, within faith communities, and at large. Some cases involve a mixed bag of defamation, unfair competition, copyright, anti-SLAPP and/or first amendment issues. In addition, I have handled other claims of personal affronts, including false arrest, malicious prosecution, and invasion of privacy.
