Has Someone Attacked Your Reputation? We Can Help.
Just because the First Amendment guarantees freedom of speech does not mean individuals cannot face consequences for the things they say ― especially if their statements are false and harmful to others.

Defamation In New York: The Basics
While proving defamation can vary depending on the circumstances ― particularly if you are a public figure ― the basic elements of a claim include:
- A statement that is false or defamatory, but presented as fact
- The statement is about you
- The statement is published to a third party, either through print or speech
- The statement results in injury to you, such as a lost job or business opportunity
The simple truth is that words have power. Whether you are a businessperson, political candidate, doctor, nurse, teacher or in any other profession, false statements can irreparably damage your career. So you need to fight back and protect your reputation when someone defames you.
