Defending Christians and Conservatives from Defamation
Defamation consists of false statements about a person which harms his or her reputation and exposes the person to ridicule, contempt, or hatred. These injurious statements may be spoken or written through various media, such as newspapers, books, the internet, or other forms of communication. Defamatory statements may injure the person, his business, or other cause, causing others to shun or avoid him. Offensive statements are not considered defamatory; only malicious misrepresentations which are put forward as truth are categorized as defamation.

Defamation through speech or physical gestures is called slander. Defamation through the written word or through pictures is defined as libel. In order to be classified as defamation, the false claim, accusation, or statement must be made as if it were true and must be asserted to others, not just the target of the defamation.
If you believe you have been defamed as a Christian or conservative and such defamation has caused you damage, you may pursue justice against those responsible through civil litigation. The Becker Law Firm provides committed and capable legal representation to Christian and conservative clients in such cases throughout the nation. The firm has provided effective counsel to clients in such diverse areas as California, Texas, and Michigan.
Defamation Per Se
Four types of defamation exist which fall under the category of "defamation per se." These types of defamation cases do not require proof of damage. They consist of 1) stating that someone has committed a crime 2) stating that someone has a foul disease 3) stating that an individual is not fit to run a business and 4) stating that someone has engaged in sexual misconduct. All that needs to be done in these types of cases is to demonstrate that the false statement was made to another party.
Those who are subjected to defamation may be entitled to the recovery of damages through the courts. To get the legal assistance you need in this matter, contact the firm to arrange for a confidential consultation with Mr. Becker.
