Los Angeles Online Reputation Management Attorney
Internet Defamation and Negative Online Reviews
The anonymity of the Internet generates a haven for defamatory content, bad reviews, and online reputation issues. The authors who perpetrate these bad acts do so through deception, then disappear into cyber space; often disguising themselves with stolen identities or hiding behind fabricated personas. Many law enforcement agencies and many law firms are not equipped to assist those with Internet defamatory issues, bad reviews, or online reputation matters. Wex Law not only knows Internet law, we also have a thorough understanding of the Internet, and network and computer forensics. Many have suffered anonymous attacks on their reputation from defamatory remarks posted on questionable websites like Yelp, Ripoff Report, The Dirty, Mugshots, etc. At Wex Law we can help those people victimized by sleazebags.

Online Reputation Management: Protect Your Reputation
All too often, Web pages such as Yelp, the Ripoff Report, The Dirty, Mugshots, etc. appear higher in Google search results than company websites or press releases. Many countermeasures are typically overpowered by these questionable websites, so many are overwhelmed and believe that they have no place to turn.
Protecting your reputation from these sites requires a strong strategy. Existing laws are typically adequate or effective in combating Internet defamation and online reputation reviews. However, pursuant to Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act, websites such as Yelp, the Ripoff Report, Mugshots, and the Dirty are usually immune from the postings done by others. However, we can still help you get the results you are seeking.
Several Ways to Combat Internet Defamation / Online Reputation Reviews
There are several ways to resolve Internet defamation and online reputation matters:
- Cease and desist letter (when it includes the letterhead of a law firm, the results are amazingly successful);
- Review the website's terms of service since many websites will remove the matter if in violation of their terms of service;
- File a restraining order (many times the restraining order will include the removal of all postings by the respondent);
- Filing a lawsuit;
- Requesting a meeting with prosecutors or the FBI.
