Expert witness reports and testimony in defamation/reputation cases, portrayal in a false light, and right to privacy. Areas include: economic damages; maliciously, negligently, or recklessly inflicted emotional distress; mainstream or social media libel and online defamation.

My familiarity comes from 18 years of regular contact with defamation law and cases, tracking and analyzing the spread of defamation and economic damages, working with law firms to frame defamation cases or defenses, and hundreds of consultations with victims of defamation, most of them readers of my book Fighting Slander, published in 2003, 5th Edition available at .

Experience includes 25 years in programming and online forums; being a CFO, financial software designer, and digital analyst; and hundreds of consultations with victims of defamation.

I am familiar with most aspects of defamation, from gossip campaigns to online defamation and reputation management. Particular areas of expertise:

• Economic damages resulting from defamation.

• Maliciously, negligently, or recklessly inflicted emotional distress.

• Traditional mainstream media libel. I've been an editor, journalist, and author for 28 years, and know the aspects from fault to hot-button words in both news and book publishing.

• Online defamation, whether via social media, anonymous complaints to rating web sites, or head-on SEO attacks.

Conflicts: very few. I'm not inherently a plaintiffs' or defendants' expert witness; I deliver opinion based on the facts, and whether I feel I have significant expertise in the issue.
