Defamation - LITIGATION CONSULTANT and EXPERT WITNESS for economic damages, emotional distress, social media, SM, mainstream media, blog, online, internet defamation, libel review, litigation support, false light, reputation repair, public/private figures, right to privacy, slander, libel, defamation repair.
Litigation consulting or expert witness testimony in defamation of character cases, including both libel and slander, as well as portrayal in a false light and right to privacy cases. When acting as a non-testifying litigation consultant I can also provide reputation repair for defamation victims/targets, leveraging 25 years of experience as a credible journalist and one of the first practitioners of search engine optimization.

My experience comes from the study of defamation law; 25 years in programming and online forums; being a CFO, financial software designer, and digital analyst; and hundreds of consultations with victims of defamation, most of them readers of my book Fighting Slander, published in 2003, 5th Edition forthcoming in June 2021. I am familiar with most aspects of defamation, from gossip campaigns to onl...
