Customer Question

I am an advanced practice nurse with 18 years of experience who was wrongfully terminated and a letter and email were circulated defaming my character. This is a large corporation and I have been advised to sue for defamation of character due to out right lies that can be verified by my co workers. Have already seen a lawyer to protect my license

What exactly is your question? Thanks.

I have been told that I have a great defamation of character case. Most lawyers won't handle these cases on contingency. This company has made 50 million so far this year. I live in southern New Jersey just outside of Philadelphia and need someone in my area. I have done in north jersey near New York who has great results with these cases. That is a very long drive for me. The person who told me I have a great case us an RN lawyer
