                Defamation

                Lawyers will tell you that defamation cases are almost always impossible to win.

Defendants not only reported her to the police and the District Attorney’s office but also posted defamatory comments about her on the internet. Without question, our client was absolutely innocent. Our attorneys at The Chopin Law Firm skillfully set the case in a posture for trial and got the defendants to pay handsomely for the damages they caused.
