My soon to be daughter in law who works at the hair salon where

This answer was rated:

My soon to be daughter in law who works at the hair salon where I patron has been saying horrible lies and I am no longer welcome to go to the salon I have been going to. This woman has told intimate family information and shared at her workplace. What can I do.

wallstreetfighter :

Hello I am a licensed attorney here to help you with your question, please review my response and do not hesitate to ask for clarification

wallstreetfighter :

This is an unfortunate situation, what she is doing is defaming you, if the statements she made about you are false, if you feel you have been injured due to these false remarks, you can sue her for defamation in Civil Court. Another option is to hire an attorney to send her a threatening letter,

wallstreetfighter :

stating that if she does not stop her defamatory actions, you will bring a lawsuit against her for damages.

Customer:

She will not stop with her remarks. I was so embarassed that I was told I could no longer go to the salon I get my hair done (by a different stylist). I am not exactly sure of exact wording other than I am no longer allowed to go there because of things she has said about me.

Customer:

The remarks that she made, some were family secrets and some about my mental well-being.

wallstreetfighter :

If that is the case, and you have witnesses and evidence of her statements, you can sue her in Civil Court or even by yourself in Small Claims court for the damages you faced.

Customer:

I am very ill and do not have the energy to try to take this on on my own. Any suggestions?

wallstreetfighter :

You can hire an attorney to start a lawsuit or at the minimum send her a Cease and Desist letter threatening legal action, I would also advise your son, about the issue, and he may be able to settle the issue.

wallstreetfighter :

She would stop if a letter from an attorney is sent threatening legal action.

Customer:

He is getting married to this woman and no one in this family is for it. No one on his side of the family is attending the wedding. He will be no help.

Customer:

How can I get a letter sent to her to stop?

wallstreetfighter :

Then a lawsuit is best, XXXXX XXXXX contact the local bar association, and hire an attorney to send a letter and start legal action.

Customer:
