A Skilled Litigator Protecting Your Business And Your Good Name
My name is Virginia King, founding attorney of ViKing Law. In addition to my work on behalf of personal injury victims, I am also proud to fight for clients who are facing a threat to the health of their business due to a dispute or who have suffered harm to their reputation because of someone else’s false statements.
I bring nearly two decades of legal experience to each case and client, including significant experience defending insurance companies against high-value claims. When you need a lawyer who is organized, legally savvy, confident in the courtroom and tenacious on behalf of clients, mine is the firm to call.
Don’t Let A Litigated Dispute Damage Your Business
No business owner wants to endure the stress, expense or uncertainty of going to court. But if you are involved in a dispute with a vendor, customer, business partner or another party, litigation is sometimes the only option.
I understand how important it is for you to protect the business you’ve worked so hard to build. When you hire my firm, I will seek efficient and cost-effective resolutions to your legal dispute, prioritizing negotiation, settlements and other strategies designed to avoid trial. If these methods are unsuccessful or the other party refuses to participate, however, I will not hesitate to take your case to court. You can take comfort in my experience and strong track record of success as I fight for the decisive legal victory you and your business deserve.
The Basics Of Pennsylvania Defamation Claims
Free speech is one of our most important rights in this country, but it has its limits. Defamation is the area of law concerned with how a person’s reputation can be harmed by another person’s false statements. These can be delivered orally (which is slander), or in published print (which is libel).
At its most basic, a defamation claim involves allegations that:
- Someone made false statements about you (opinions do not count)
- The statements became public (known to others beyond you and the person who made them)
- You suffered reputational harm as a result of these statements
Because state and federal laws strongly protect free speech, anyone bringing a defamation claim must meet a high burden of proof. The burden is even higher for someone considered a public figure.
However, if you suffered serious damage to your reputation because of false statements made by someone else, you have the right to seek compensation in the civil justice system. As an attorney experienced in litigating defamation cases, I am ready to aggressively represent your interests, clear your good name and help you hold the at-fault party accountable for their reckless and/or malicious communications.
