Anti-SLAPP Law

Anti-SLAPP Cases

At Dumas & Vaughn, we represent people who have been harmed by defamation.  If you have been sued for defamation but were exercising certain free speech rights, you may be able to file what’s called an “Anti-SLAPP” motion (Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation) in Oregon to get the case dismissed early and force the other party to pay your attorney’s fees.  Anti-SLAPP motions can only be used for certain types of conduct, and each case requires a fact-specific evaluation.

Hourly rates apply

Please note that we generally do not handle these types of cases on a contingent fee basis and clients whose cases we decide to accept will need to pay a retainer fee, as well as our attorneys’ and staff members’ full hourly rates for these cases.

If you have been the target of defamation and are interested in learning what options are available, please contact us to schedule a consultation.  All contacts are completely confidential.
