Representative Matters

  • Identified person who was leaving dozens of fake, negative Google reviews every week about a business by subpoenaing Google and an Internet service provider for the digital footprint of the reviewer. Identified the poster as the client’s competitor and immediately forced him to stop posting fake reviews and enter settlement discussions.
  • Obtained temporary restraining order to immediately take down website that was being used to extort client to get him to give up his property and legal rights by falsely accusing him of beating a woman through use of a fake photo posted on website that was copied from another website.
  • Overcame pseudonymous reviewer’s attempt to remain anonymous by defeating reviewer’s motion to quash allegedly premised on reviewer’s doctor-patient privilege and claim that review reflected genuine experience. Identified the poster of fake reviews as a former-patient that was leaving several fake reviews of doctor, posing as several people of the opposite sex and describing treatments/outcomes that never occurred to lower doctor’s review ratings.
  • Compelled woman who fabricated allegation of sexual misconduct about client on shaming website to remove defamatory post by contacting poster, website and providing text messages that proved the poster was merely upset at being ‘ghosted’ by client in dating context and made up false allegation of sexual misconduct to harm client after being rejected romantically.
  • Sued former-patient that left Yelp review of doctor-client that falsely accused doctor-client of malpractice by disfiguring patient and causing nerve damage to former patient. Review removed.
  • Removed dozens of client’s leaked private photographs from pornographic website.
