Thank you for your question.
Before I begin I want to explain a bit about how the site works.
It may be that I will find that I need to gather further information from you. As well, it's quite possible that you may feel the need to ask me additional questions for further clarification.Please do not worry that you will be charged additionally if I ask you questions or if you need to ask me questions. That is not at all how the site works.
As well, please understand that as a careful lawyer I will always give you an honest answer even if the answer is sometimes not what you were hoping for.
Finally, as we go through the process please do not feel rushed if I ask you a question. You are always free to take your time to gather more information before you post back. As well, please understand that even after you rate me the post will not lock and you could always come back for further clarification if you think of something a bit later on down the road.
I am sorry to hear this.
I suggest you retain a lawyer immediately to send her a letter demanding that she cease and desist, provide you with a written apology and send a written retraction to all the customers.
And the letter can say that if necessary you will seek an emergency injunction and will then seek damages and your costs.
If you don't have a lawyer then what you can do to find a lawyer is one of the following things.
You can contact the Law Society and use their Lawyer Referral Service. You will be given the name of a lawyer and can consult with the lawyer and the first half hour will be free.
The number is:
1-800-268-8326 or(NNN) NNN-NNNN(within the GTA)
Or you can check on a site called lexpert
. This is a legal directory of leading lawyers and law firms throughout Canada and is well-respected by the legal community.
Here's the link to their website: http://www.lexpert.ca/Directory/DirectoryContent/FindLawyersOrFirm.aspx
I hope that helps as a starting point.
