One of the most common requests is to help in the identification of anonymous antagonists. Frequently, identification starts with obtaining IP addresses and then working forwards to naming the person.
We talk to many people who tell us that have talked to many attorneys, law enforcement, friends, and have gotten no where.
Since we deal with 300+ requests per month, we can walk you through exactly what works, and what does not. What you will find is we take a no nonsense, approach to resolving your situation and if possible, help you catch the evidence that you need.
Our company is developed some of the most effective, legal, and court verifiable methos of collecting identifying evidence in the industry.
Online defamation & harassment can be one of the most stressful things that you will face in your lifetime. When someone is attacking you, you feel helpless, alone, and nobody seems to be able to help.
When this occurs, many people’s first thought is if I COULD JUST FIND OUT WHO IS DOING OR PROVE IT, I could get this stopped.
While this thought would be accurate, many privacy laws that surround the internet make this much more difficult to do than people realize.
What most people really want is to stop what is happening and restore their life. If there is online damage, they also want that removed.
We have designed our stop & remove service to help accomplish that fast. This approach tends to substantially outperform traditionally attorney cease & desist approaches.
If you or your company is getting defamed online, then you have the right to sue the person. Doing this can occur either in small claims court where you represent yourself or in a more traditional lawsuit when represented by an attorney. Obviously cost is the major driver here.
In some cases, you may be able to build a strong enough case to bring this to small claims court and seek damages. Usually the biggest hurdle to doing this is knowing how to build a strong enough case to convince the court.
As a litigation support firm, we can help you with this task. Given our wealth of experience, we can put together a strong evidence package. In fact, you may even be able to subpoena limited information.
As a rule-of-thumb, if you are pretty sure who is behind your attack and you think you can prove it, then you may be a good candidate for this approach. If your antagonist is totally unknown, this is probably not going to work for you since you don’t have full power of subpoenas.
Restraining orders are techniques used to formally demand an individual stop their activities that are harassing you. This can also apply to online activities as well.
The challenge here is usually proving that a person is doing something to you online. Since many activities on the web are "anonymous", then it can be very difficult to convince a judge that a certain person is harassing you.
In restraining orders, determining who is the antagonist is further hampered because subpoenas are not used… this proof has to be determined totally from investigative findings.
As a rule-of-thumb, if you believe you know who is doing something to you and you think you can prove it, then often we can take that information, augment it, and then develop a strong enough evidence package to then request a restraining order.
When people undergo online attacks, they are often surprised when they report the issue to law enforcement and are told that they can’t be helped.
Typically, you are told this because either the activity is not criminal (like defamation in most states) or law enforcement simply does not have the manpower to enforce the HUGE volume of online issues that are happening today.
Even for some serious online cases, like extortion, threats, and theft, many times law enforcement cannot/will not step in unless much of the investigation is complete: many departments simply don’t have the manpower or training to deal with this.
For serious cases (stronger than simple harassment), then we can help you assemble your case in a format that makes it easy for law enforcement to step in and help.
Because very few attorneys or firms across the country understand internet cases, it is often very difficult for most attorneys to handle your case alone. While you may have the best attorney in the world, unless they deal with these kinds of issues daily or at least weekly, it is unlikely they know exactly what to do.
We see horror story after horror story of inexperienced attorneys convincing clients that they can handle their case and then making a mess.
Because we support litigation across all 50 states & Canada, we know what to do, and almost more importantly, what not to do. What we do is handle not only the investigations piece but also the development of all the key documents used in your litigation. Your attorney will simply have to review those documents, make any small tweaks needed for your jurisdiction, and then they are ready to file.
Since so few attorneys deal with this type of litigation, we hear tons of stories from clients including “I called 10 attorneys and all of them said they couldn’t help” to clients getting quotes of $25,000 to $100,000 to handle their case. While your case MIGHT get this expensive if the person fights you in court, historically about 90% of the cases are handled much more simply.
Individuals and law firms hire us because we support litigation across all 50 states & Canada, we know what to do, and almost more importantly, what not to do. What we do is handle not only the investigations piece but also the development of all the key documents used in your litigation. The attorney will simply have to review those documents, make any small tweaks needed for your jurisdiction, and then they are ready to file.
Once we have your case ready to go, then we will suggest an attorney from our network of attorneys.
