Defamation: Slander and Libel
If you do not think defamation is serious, please keep this in mind, the largest jury verdict in the history of McLennan County was for defamation.
Defamation cases are where somone (or some entity) has made a false statement about you and because of the statement you have suffered a financial injury (such as loss of job/promotion/business opportunity). Slander is spoken defamation. Libel is printed defamation.
What is NOT defamation: if someone makes the statement to you and only you. The false statement must be made to a third party.
If you are the victim of defamation, please contact our office. There may be a consultation fee for an in-office consultation with an attorney.
