Representing Florida residents in claims arising from harm to their reputations
At Boone and Davis, PA in Fort Lauderdale, our Fort Lauderdale defamation attorneys represent victims of harm caused by others to their reputation. This injury occurs as a result of concepts commonly referred to as libel and slander. Slander is a spoken or oral defamation, while libel is a written communication of another, which is then communicated to others.
Either way the false and defamatory material causes damage to one’s reputation, ability to conduct a business or profession, and holds that person up to disgrace and humiliation.
