Attorneys Protecting Your Good Name And Your Legal Rights
The attorneys at Astor Weiss Kaplan & Mandel LLP represent individuals who have suffered reputational damage due to false claims made about them. Defamation relates to untrue statements that hurt someone’s reputation. Written defamation is called libel, and spoken defamation is called slander. A person who has been defamed has a cause of action. We handle all types of defamation cases.
Take Action Against Abuses Of The Civil Court System
Frivolous litigation wastes both time and money, and it can indirectly damage your reputation. Thankfully, there is a legal remedy available.
In Pennsylvania, “frivolous litigation” is covered by the Dragonetti Act, which authorizes a lawsuit to recover damages caused by an opponent committing “wrongful use of civil proceedings.”
The act is violated if a person files a lawsuit without probable cause, primarily for an improper purpose, and the case is terminated in favor of the person against whom the case was brought. We have litigated Dragonetti Act cases and have recovered substantial funds in litigation under the Dragonetti Act.
