When to Contact Our Slander Lawyers
Slander is defined as making false and damaging statements about someone. If those statements are presented as facts, rather than judgment or opinion, this can be considered slanderous. Saying harmful statements can have many consequences to a person’s reputation, career, ability to own a home, and can inhibit various other potential monetary opportunities.
Our slander attorneys can help you recuperate the monetary losses in the court if you have been a victim of slander. Consult with the experts at Baskin Richards to discuss and determine if you have a case for being hurt by slander and to pursue compensation.
Defamation and the Internet
Always a hot legal topic for business and private parties alike, the exponential communication opportunities and reach offered by the Internet and social media sites make libel, slander, and defamation disputes more prevalent and relevant than ever before. Such issues, intertwined with First Amendment free speech rights, present a complex set of legal questions. For example, the nature of the target of the defamatory statements—particularly whether they are a public figure or a private figure—can make a substantial difference in what types of statements about them might constitute defamation. Also, statements that are seemingly defamatory in one context may not be considered legally defamatory in another context, or the relationship of the person making the statement to the receiver of the statement may create protective immunities. It takes an experienced Phoenix defamation attorney to help untangle these sophisticated issues.
