A: An Ohio attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. You could reach out to attorneys that handle defamation cases to discuss. But these types of cases are not generally handled on a contingency basis, meaning attorney fees can be due, win or lose. You may want to discuss with any attorneys you reach out to whether the matter would be cost-effective to pursue. Good luck
