Internet Defamation

Are you the victim of defamatory Facebook posts or comments? Or you are being publicly attacked on Twitter or other popular social media websites (Instagram, YouTube, Reddit). Or you’ve found malicious and damaging content written about you on a blog, online bulletin board, forum, or shaming website. Defamatory attacks, posts, and content on the internet can have devastating effects on your life.

Oftentimes, internet defamation is accompanied by a slew of other internet-related attacks, such as extortion, cyberharassment, revenge porn, and blackmail. These attacks can cause severe financial damage and ruin, strained or severed relationships with friends and loved ones, and even physical symptoms such as depression, anxiety, and stress. We understand just how stressful and overwhelming defamatory internet attacks can be. For years it has been widely believed that individuals have little if any options when victimized by defamatory and damaging content on the internet. This is no longer the case.

In the virtual world of the Internet, where truth can be impossible to discern from fiction, Minc is the leading go-to lawyer who effortlessly wipes away the fiction. Thank you, Aaron, for making the world a better place.

– Scott T.


I had an amazing experience and couldn’t be happier with the service. Every thing was done as promised and agreed. Very professional, I highly recommend it.

– D.M.


When I started my defamation case with Aaron, I had no idea what was going on or how to fix it. Fast forward to today, and the defamation has been removed and the culprit has been identified. I feel like he is proficient at identifying applicable laws and managing the complex issues involved with defamation.

– John H. 


I worked with Melanie Hughs who assisted me in removing things from the internet that were spitefully put up. I was a little hesitant at first but well worth the money to have a peace of mind. I am so glad I used MINC. She was professional and courteous. She kept me informed, and was easy to get in contact with when I had questions. Thank You MINC

– Joey D.


Absolutely solved my problem, quick and just as promised. Some have mentioned the cost but I thought it was very fair and a much better result than using a service that claims to drive search results down on Google only to have it inch back to the top in 6 months. With Minc it is removed not driven down. These guys took it off the internet for less $. Completely satisfied.

– I.C.

How It Works

Step 1

After submitting your information on our Contact Us page, messaging us via our chatbox, or calling our office, your inquiry and information will be reviewed by Minc Law paralegals to determine whether our firm is the right fit for your legal issue.

Once our paralegals have reviewed your legal issue and determined we are the right fit for your matter, we will contact you within 24 to 48 business hours to schedule your free, initial no-obligation internet defamation consultation.

Depending on your internet defamation matter, it is entirely possible that you do not need to speak with an attorney at all. For example, Minc Law paralegals handle all Guaranteed Content Removals.

Step 2

During your free attorney consult you will be able to confidentially discuss your internet-related issue and learn how we can be of assistance to your legal case. If you then hire our firm and become a client, we will generally start working on your matter immediately.

Step 3

Our attorneys draw on their specialized technical and business expertise to provide unique and cost-effective solutions to stop and remove internet defamation. This includes:

  • Working closely with website administrators, third-party arbitration firms, and online content managers to swiftly remove defamatory online content;
  • Subpoenaing websites, ISPs, and hosts to determine the identity of the anonymous perpetrator;
  • Filing internet defamation lawsuits to secure court ordered internet defamation removals;
  • Sending demand-letters to perpetrating parties;
  • De-indexing defamatory content from internet search results.

Costs for Internet Defamation Services

Purchasing legal services to stop and remove internet defamation is not like purchasing a house or a car. There is rarely a one-size-fits-all solution to remove internet defamation. Every situation is unique. We offer three primary types of services and pricing that we charge clients for all of our firm’s internet defamation legal engagements. These are:

Guaranteed Content Removal Services ~ ($1500 – $2500+)

Guaranteed Content Removal Services are offered for websites that we have extensively worked with in the past and regularly remove online content from. We charge a flat fee for guaranteed content removal services.

Websites that qualify for Guaranteed Content Removal Services generally include: “shaming,” “scam” and “cheater” websites. A list of websites that qualify can be found here. If your case qualifies for a guaranteed content removal and we are unable to remove the online content, we will refund your money for any content that we cannot remove. The minimum amount we charge for our least expensive guaranteed removal is $1500. However, the average single site removal typically costs around $2500 or more. Total costs will depend on a variety of factors, like the number of websites content is posted on and the amount of work required to secure the removal.

Hourly Non-Litigation Services ~ ($3500 – $6000+)

Hourly Non-Litigation Services are when a client retains our firm where no litigation is contemplated or involved as part of the legal engagement. These services generally involve the removal of news articles, blogs, consumer reviews, images, court pleadings, and other content that is typically either factual in nature or otherwise not actionable. However, they can involve almost anything, including, online harassment, cease and desist letters, extortion, sextortion, criminal conduct, pornography, revenge pornography, defamation, and other online privacy concerns.

Most Hourly Non-Litigation Services do not qualify as Guaranteed Removal Services and require an upfront retainer of $3,500$4,500.  The average cost of most Hourly Non-Litigation Services typically falls between $5,000$6,000. However, total costs will vary considerably based on a variety of factors.

Litigation Services ~ ($7500 – $16000)

Litigation Services are appropriate when a client’s case involves filing in a lawsuit (or other types of involvement in litigation). We bill litigation services hourly, including expert witness services. Generally, we require a minimum retainer of $7500 for any litigation matter. Average total costs can go as low as $5,000$7,500, but on average fall between $14,000$16,000 for most of the matters we handle. Total cost of your litigation matter will be influenced by a number of important factors.

You can find out more about Hourly Non-Litigation and Litigation Service costs over at our Pricing Page.

As with any sensitive legal matter, if you are interested in obtaining more specific advice or information regarding the costs and expenses related to your specific removal or case, you will need to speak directly with a legal expert.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Considered Internet Defamation?

Internet defamation refers to a false statement of fact that is published to a third-party on the internet that causes damage to you and your reputation. Common examples of internet defamation include:

  • Fake profiles on professional and social networking websites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter;
  • Defamatory and malicious posts and comments on social networking websites and blogs;
  • False reports and information on blogs, comment sections, message boards, and other forums;
  • False allegations on relationship and infidelity websites such as,, and;
  • False accusations of immoral and predatory behavior on websites such as,, and
  • Damaging posts and comments on smear and gossip websites such as,, and

For example, if someone has posted on Facebook falsely accusing you of having an extra-marital affair or have been unfaithful to your partner, this will constitute defamation. However, if someone on Facebook posted that you are a career arsonist and have been charged numerous times with arson throughout your life, then there is likely nothing you can do and this will not constitute defamation.

Can a Minc Law Attorney Provide Expert Witness Services For Me Even If I’m Located in a Different State?
Of course!

For both Non-Litigation and Guaranteed Removal Internet Defamation Matters, your location will not be an issue at all. Not being licensed or located in your state is no way a hurdle or impediment to Minc Law being able to represent you, provide legal services, and get results.

If you have a Litigation Matter, we are still able to represent you. But, if none of our attorneys are licensed in your state, or we have to file something outside of the United States, we will have to work with local counsel who is licensed in your state. This type of arrangement is something we do in almost all of our Litigation Matters.

At Minc Law, we represent individuals from across the United States AND the globe.


How Do I File an Internet Defamation Lawsuit?

To file an effective internet defamation lawsuit, there’s numerous considerations that must first be observed, as United States defamation laws are always evolving and highly nuanced. When contemplating whether you should file an internet defamation lawsuit, we suggest focusing on the following three things:

  • Do not draw unwanted attention to your matter;
  • Adhere to your state’s respective defamation filing requirements and formalities;
  • Contact an experienced internet defamation attorney to assist you.

If you are the victim of defamatory online attacks, posts, videos, or comments, and want to file an internet defamation lawsuit, we recommend reaching out to an experienced internet defamation as soon as possible.
