Defending Your Reputation
A negative and fraudulent review on Yelp, Google, or any other social media site can negatively affect a business. Vindictive individuals or competitors use social media to post false and defamatory statements to harm a business.
If your business has been harmed because of defaming verbal (slander) or written (libel) claims by another business, you should consider talking to an attorney. We will thoroughly investigate and document the offending material. If necessary, we will retain technology experts to help identify the offending party, if that person is anonymous.
