Minc Law is a nationally recognized internet defamation and online harassment law firm whose purpose is to give people and businesses peace of mind in a digital world. Trust, transparency, and communication are paramount to our practice.
These editorial guidelines were established by our firm to ensure that all Minc Law articles, videos, and other online content that the firm publishes adheres to sound editorial practice, contains accurate, consistent language, and provides actionable, skimmable, and valuable information for readers.
Our law firm prides itself on living, executing, and furthering the below four core values, and strives to publish all online content in furtherance of these values.
- Loyalty: We are fiercely loyal to our clients, colleagues, and mission. We work hard, get the job done right, and do not ever give up.
- Results: We are deadly serious about getting results. We set high standards, take ownership of our goals and mission, and strive each day to make ourselves better.
- Professionalism: We are reliable and consistent, always acting with proper etiquette, transparency, integrity, and ethics.
- Compassion and Empathy: We exercise patience, understanding, gratitude, and genuinely care about our colleagues and clients.
As legal professionals, we are required to adhere to the highest legal and ethical standards in everything we do. Our law firm and attorneys are bound by the Ohio Rules of Professional Conduct, as well as all standards adopted by states our attorneys are licensed in and courts or tribunals we appear before.
Our Content Creation Process
Minc Law attorneys, paralegals, and editorial teams are committed to creating comprehensive, actionable, quality content based on legal research, expert experience, legal judgment and advice, and the authentic client situations, cases, and interactions that we have every day.
Our content creation process begins with sitting down as a firm to compile a list of the most pressing questions, concerns, and topics that clients come to us with. We then turn those brainstormed topics into content that enables website readers (and potential clients) to:
- Educate themselves on legal definitions, concepts, and strategies,
- Combat their legal issue on their own,
- Make an educated decision about hiring legal representation,
- Understand the next steps to undertake to resolve their matter, and
- Maximize their Minc Law consultations, services, and advice.
After brainstorming client-focused topics, our attorneys and paralegals research and draft comprehensive outlines that are then turned over to one of our experienced legal writers (as expanded on in Section ‘Our Team of Writers and Experts’).
We aim to synthesize complex legal topics and unnecessary legal jargon into concise, digestible, and skimmable advice so that anyone can feel confident confronting their internet and online reputation-related issues head-on.
Our 16-Step Content Production & Review Process
Every piece of Minc Law content (including video) is peer-reviewed, fact-checked, and edited by multiple Minc Law attorneys and professionals to ensure substantive accuracy and coverage. Our publication process is robust, following a 16-step creation and review process whereby Minc Law writers, editors, paralegals, and attorneys research, draft, vet, and edit content.

Citing Sources and Our Linking Policy
Substantive accuracy requires honesty in sourcing. We cross-check information wherever possible, interview cross-industry experts for contribution when appropriate, and always aim to cite the most authoritative, quality, and appropriate sources when it comes to our content.
We will never deliberately mislead with sourcing and strive to cite trusted sources instead of unnamed and/or unknown sources. This includes citing government websites and legal databases for all legal statutes, amendments, and cases.
When citing facts, quotes, and relevant statistics gathered by a third-party individual or organization, we always strive to cite the original survey, report, or resource.
We apply our citation and linking policy across the Minc Law website and all Minc Law social media channels.
Our Style and Voice
We are confident and straight-talking, yet sympathetic legal professionals. We are also approachable advocates and understand the challenges of navigating, cultivating and maintaining a positive reputation in an online world.
With every piece of content we publish, we strive to:
We empower internet defamation, revenge porn, sextortion, online harassment, and other cybercrime victims to understand their legal rights and remedies and take action.
We understand that readers may come to our website in a time of great stress and strive to put ourselves in their shoes. We do not patronize readers and always treat them with the respect that they deserve.
We tell readers what they need to know, not just what we want to say. We provide hundreds of free educational and actionable articles so that readers can fully arm themselves against internet attacks.
Our Team of Writers and Experts
Minc Law attorneys and paralegals all contribute to Minc Law content and are the ultimate sources of information and advice provided. However, in the interest of maximizing attorney and paralegal firm obligations, we utilize experienced legal writers, all of whom are lawyers, paralegals, or have extensive legal backgrounds and training in the industry, to work in tandem with Minc Law attorneys and paralegals to draft article and video content after it is comprehensively researched and outlined.
We train all Minc Law writers on best research and drafting practices to ensure that articles are produced in line with our firm’s tone of voice, formatting, and quality standards. We provide regular feedback and ongoing training to stay up to date with the law and the internet’s ever-evolving landscape.
Each piece of written and video content produced by our writers is peer-reviewed and fact-checked by multiple Minc Law attorneys to ensure substantive accuracy. Furthermore, our in-house editorial team consists of licensed legal professionals (who are licensed paralegals and attorneys themselves) with demonstrated experience in the concepts, statutes, and laws discussed in our content.
As one of the few law firms across the globe solely dedicated to internet defamation and online harassment, we feel a strong obligation to stay current with everything internet law-related.
Minc Law attorneys, paralegals, writers, and editorial staff strive to stay up-to-date on ever-changing internet defamation, online harassment, and other cybercrime-related laws by monitoring legal research services, proprietary databases, legal journals, news outlets, attorney networks, newsletters, and conferences. Doing so ensures that our expertise (and advice) is accurate, refined, and actionable.
Specifically, we monitor:
- Legal developments, policy decisions, court cases, and legal memos impacting internet defamation and online harassment law,
- Internet content removal guidelines, tips, and strategies,
- New technological and investigative tools,
- Reader feedback and concerns.
We conduct rigorous reviews of past published articles to ensure up-to-date and accurate information. Roughly fifty percent of the content we publish is a refresh of old, outdated website content. While it is impossible to ensure 100% accuracy all the time, we strive to identify and respond to requisite updates in a timely manner.
