Anti-SLAPP and First Amendment

California’s Anti-SLAPP statute protects individuals and businesses who have been unfairly targeted with an expensive lawsuit by a plaintiff seeking to chill the right to free speech and to petition the government for redress. For example, individuals who write a letter to a newspaper editor, complain at a public meeting or report unlawful activity are frequently targeted with lawsuits for defamation and other common torts. California’s Anti-SLAPP law is designed to end such lawsuits quickly and award attorney’s fees to the prevailing defendant. The firm has experience filing and opposing anti-SLAPP motions on behalf of unfairly targeted clients at both the trial and appellate levels. The key to a successful Anti-SLAPP motion is to hire an attorney quickly so that an adequate motion can be filed on time.

  • “I must admit, I can be outspoken and posted truthful negative reviews on social media and there was unwarranted backlash from the business I targeted. I found myself sued for the first time in my life and literally scared to death. Jeff handled everything and helped preserve my first amendment rights and saved the day. He’s certainly an expert in this area of the law and would highly recommend his services to anyone that is legally being bullied. He filed on my behalf an anti-SLAPP motion that resulted in a successful outcome for us. I can’t thank him enough for his help.”
