Customer Question
I live in Glens...

I live in Glens Falls. I am calling you about an old friend of mine who was recently released from prison. The Glens Falls Post Star wrote an article smearing, and I think, slandering this man. They called him a menace to society, posted a picture, and recited past rumors as truth. This man is 68, has bone cancer, has done his time, and just wants a quiet life. He's actually afraid, because of this article, to walk down the street. He's afraid someone will start something, and he cannot defend himself, or he will be back in prison. I need to know if what the Post Star had done is legal.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

New York

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

None

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I attempted to contact a Glens Falls person for NAACP, and number was not in service.

Hello: My name is ***** ***** I am an attorney.

Did the newspaper have this on its opinion page by chance? Also, does the article state alleged facts as true but the alleged facts are not true.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
