Defamation, Slander, Libel When Words Hurt



"Keyboard courage" has resulted in an explosion of defamation, slander, and libel cases. People are awfully quick to hit "post" or "send" when they'd likely never say that same thing in public or to you directly. Unfortunately, those posts can go viral within seconds and cause you real harm to your business and reputation.

If someone has printed or posted something suggesting you're guilty of a crime or incapable of performing your chosen job, you may have a case. While the truth is a defense, that's often not at the heart of what motivates these trolls. You’d be surprised to know that homeowner’s insurance often covers these types of offenses. If you've been caught in someone's crosshairs, call us today and find out what you can do about it.


Defamation, slander, and libel are legally identified as civil remedies in response to another’s words, those of which have caused some form of harm to one’s reputation, particularly in one’s professional life. With the advent of social media, this is even more of an issue--which is why it is vital you combat it at its conception, with our help.


For victims of defamation, slander, or libel, it can seem as though they have nowhere to turn. However, our Tallahassee attorneys of Fasig Brooks seek to be that place of guidance and counsel for you in your time of need. Our legal team will ensure your personal and professional lives are protected to the best of our ability.

Are you interested in speaking to a member of your firm? Please don’t hesitate to contact us by calling (850) 583-9409 or (407) 917-9697 today.
