Dorrian knows that the answer to Shakespeare’s rhetorical question, “What’s in a name?” has never carried as much significance as it does in today’s digital world. On a daily basis, she works with individuals and businesses who have learned the hard way that their good name and reputation are shaped largely by content that can be easily accessed by anyone in the world with a quick online search. These clients have suffered the devastating emotional and financial impact of negative search results and trust Dorrian to work on their behalf as a zealous and empathetic advocate with the dedication and experience necessary to help them reclaim their good name online. She listens to her clients’ concerns and provides efficient and responsive representation that spans the defamation and content removal spectrum.

Dorrian brings a wealth of litigation and communications law experience to Minc Law’s Internet Defamation practice. She has established a track record for successfully representing clients before state and federal courts as well as various administrative agencies, including the Federal Communications Commission. Dorrian was drawn to the niche area of Internet defamation as a natural result of her interest and knowledge in technology and her passion for helping people victimized by it. The emotional distress experienced by her clients as a result of online defamation drove her to complete additional training in software engineering to better understand how websites operate from both the technical and legal perspectives.
