Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney – What is defamation?

Defamation is regarded as a false statement about another person, uttered or written with the intent to cause injury to that person’s reputation, and the communication of the statement to a third-party. In the case of defamation of a private individual, the plaintiff need only demonstrate that the statement was made with negligence.

Should you be named in a defamation case and found responsible, you could be liable to compensate the injured party for harm, mental anguish, court fees, and any medical expenses resulting out of the injurious statement or statements.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
