My name is***** have over 16 years experience in the law. Should you like to chat on the phone I am happy to for a nominal cost. Let me know at any time during our question and answer session if you are interested I am happy to give you more details.

Defamation (which includes slander) is defined as "a false statement of fact that harms the reputation of the victim"

So if he is lying about you? And the lies harm your reputation? That would constitute defamation
