It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it.

-Warren Buffet


To speak evil of any one, unless there is unequivocal proofs of their deserving it, is an injury for which there is no adequate reparation.

-George Washington


Mark Anthony Law has been successful in persuading jurors to make monetary reparations which, to George Washington, may or may not be adequate in his eyes but may soften the blow when someone defames you.

Have you had someone speak or write words that have destroyed your reputation? Have you had someone lie about you to your detriment, to where you have been injured or incurred damages? You may have a valid claim of defamation.


There is a variety of ways that someone can defame you in the 21st century: writings on Facebook posts, statements in a radio interview, group texts to your friends and family, posting videos on Instagram or Snapchat, tweeting lies about you, etc. Evidence is key, however. If you believe that you have been defamed, you must obtain physical evidence via documentation and/or witnesses who heard or read the lies.


As the Hebrew proverb notes, “Slander slays three people: the speaker, the spoken to, and the spoken of.


Under C.R.S. § 13-80-103(1)(a), the statute of limitations for defamation is 1 year. Therefore, the window is extremely small to act on a defamation claim. Don’t delay.
