Defamation and Libel Litigation

Defamation occurs when a statement impacts a person’s reputation; a defamatory expression tends to lower an individual in the estimation of right-thinking members of society, and is presumed to be false. Libel is defamation that occurs in print (in books, articles, on websites or blogs, Facebook posts, tweets or Youtube videos) or within radio or television broadcasts.

Pearlman Lindholm offers legal advice to people who have been defamed and regularly litigates defamation cases. Our experience with defamation and libel litigation allows us to assess and advise on the appropriate response to defamation, the likelihood of success, the range of damages, and whether the matter is suitable for court. If appropriate, our lawyers will assist in developing non-litigation measures. 

If you have been defamed or your privacy has been breached, hire one of our lawyers:


  • David T. Juteau

  • Michael R. Scherr
