Defamation, Slander & Libel

Representing those who have suffered libel or slander throughout Utah


Typical defamation cases require the statements made against you to be false, heard by a third party, known to be false by the person who transmitted the statement, and the defamatory statement caused you harm in some way. Defamation claims can often be complicated and require extensive fact-based investigations. Speak to an Attorney.


No one deserves to have false allegations ruin their lives


Not only can these allegations be harmful in the scope of your divorce proceeding, they can be harmful in other parts of your life as well. Accusations of physical or sexual abuse, for example, carry a stigma that can seriously impact your personal relationships, career opportunities and many other aspects of your life.


At the office of David R. Hartwig, Esq., in Salt Lake City, Utah, I diligently work on behalf of my clients to ensure that your rights are respected at all times. If you are facing false allegations, my office will fully investigate them and get to the truth. I will expose them for the lies that they are and hold the responsible parties accountable for the harm they have inflicted on you. I can also represent you in a defamation suit against your former spouse and any other parties who were involved in supporting the false allegations.
