Defamation of character can impact your ability to make a living and can hurt relationships, which makes defamation an important legal case to pursue. Justice can be served only when those who maliciously intend to harm others are forced to pay damages. A defamation case is a serious legal action, which means you'll want an expert defamation lawyer to help present your case. Furthermore, you'll need one who understands the complexities the age of the Internet has introduced to these kinds of cases.
While defamation is not a crime, you do have recourse under the law to take action with a civil claim. There are essentially two forms of defamation. Written defamation is known as "libel," and spoken defamation is known as "slander."
