When lies hurt and misrepresent facts
People say false things about others, often with little resulting harm. That is part of the human condition. But sometimes, false facts are stated for malicious reasons in an effort to harm another individual or business. Not only are feelings hurt, but quantifiable profits are lost. When that occurs, the McKnight Law Firm can assist with Defamation and Slander Claims and Litigation against individuals and companies who are responsible.
Putting parties on notice to preserve evidence
At the outset of the process, the McKnight Law Firm sends a “spoliation” letter to all appropriate party to ensure that all documents and electronic data are preserved in native data format(s).
In this Age of Data, communication occurs over a broad spectrum of written and internet based mediums that can be deleted and lost. To ensure compliance with our anti-spoilation demand at the outset, we have access to Computer Forensic experts, who use complex computer programs to inspect data file activity over a specified applicable time period. These experts usually get involved after litigation is underway to evaluate data files obtained during the discovery phase of the litigation.
Experts evaluate, determine economic damages
The McKnight Law Firm is associated economic experts and forensic accountants who can evaluate all causually related economic damages that have occurred due to the defamation, and testify in court if necessary.
