Attorney Brinton Resto

Brinton obtains successful results for his clients by using tech-savvy litigation techniques coupled with a deep understanding of how websites and courtrooms intersect in today’s legal world. He draws upon this specialized knowledge to subpoena websites, Internet service providers, and other entities to obtain forensic digital evidence, IP addresses, and other information in jurisdictions across the United States and around the world to unmask individuals and organizations that are responsible for anonymous defamation and other cyber-attacks. Brinton regularly wins judgments and court orders for his clients that completely remove defamatory and other unwanted content from the Internet at the source and from search engine results.

Brinton’s business clients include both large and small organizations as well as corporate officers, managers and executives who are defamed by customers, competitors, and disgruntled former employees. Brinton also assists individuals ranging from doctors, educators and social workers, to coaches, plastic surgeons, and porn stars, who need help removing damaging online content such as disparaging customer reviews, news articles on past criminal charges, arrests, exposés on public scandals, copyrighted pornographic material, and other embarrassing, private and negative information. Brinton vindicates his clients by restoring their business, careers, lives, and reputations back to normal in moments of crisis. He effectuates the removal of damaging online content for clients who have recently lost their job due to damaging online content, or have an upcoming business deal, job interview or an academic, organizational or professional opportunity that may be ruined if an online search of the client’s business or name is conducted. Brinton works efficiently, provides his clients cost effective solutions custom tailored to their specific needs, and works tirelessly to obtain successful results for his clients so that they may move on with their lives and business as quickly as possible.

Brinton’s experience includes conducting depositions, drafting motions, appearing and arguing cases in Court, including on appeal, and winning court ordered injunctions, judgments, and other rulings. He has represented clients in cases that have resulted in six-figure settlements for his clients.

When he is not at work, Brinton enjoys exploring the world of wine, seeking out new restaurants, cooking, jogging, and playing guitar.
