Adrianos helped me with my case. It was a long battle but he was always there when I needed him. Adrianos is a very nice, easy to talk to kinda guy. He won my case and I was very pleased with the results. He knows what he is doing . I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Every now and then good, quality people with a strong set of defined morals coupled with a brain and several assets, find themselves to be the litigious targets and fodder for many of the low life troglodytes in society. Sometimes when one makes the decision to challenge said low hanging fruits of society, they might find themselves the recipient of a claim for defamation of character. Some may find it fitting to classify it as nothing more than a “shakedown” or “extortion” suit for those that envy you and wish to live your same financial lifestyle. However, if you find yourself tangled in an ugly situation over defamation of character, please do yourself a favor and immediately contact attorney Adrianos Facchetti, the GOD of Defamation Defense and California anti-slapp suits.
If you have a voice and decided to use it, one must caution you to make sure you have the strength, stamina, and the money to back up your opinions. Even with the aforementioned qualities named above, the recipe fails without the retention of a top notch attorney to execute the proper legal actions and hammer down on such bottom feeding plaintiffs. Lucky for me, I was privileged enough to have retained the Law Office of Adrianos Facchetti. Mr. Facchetti vigorously and very successfully defended me in a purported “defamation” claim. Mr. Facchetti used his in-depth expertise to carry out a swift and heavy anti-slapp suit to quickly shut down the plaintiff’s fabricated storyline and scripted attempts to extort money from me. Armed with Mr. Facchetti by my side, coupled with his in-depth knowledge and legal strength, every single one of the plaintiff’s claims crumbled before their eyes. Their scheme failed quickly and miserably. Embarrassingly enough, the plaintiff’s themselves and the plaintiffs’ attorney (a shrinking violet at best) found themselves folding like a cheap suit while up against Mr. Facchetti’s vigorous defense. Mr. Facchetti is a fierce, strong, and intelligent litigator. In my opinion, Adrianos is simply the best attorney in the field of defamation period. I have witnessed firsthand, the legal mopping of floors Adrianos can accomplish swiftly and with graceful ease.
In conclusion, if you unfortunately ever find yourself to be on the opposing side of the table from Mr. Facchetti (as opposing counsel or plaintiff up against Adrianos in a defamation case), I wish you all the luck in the world. Well, luck and a large box of diapers. You will need a generous supply of both.

Adrianos Facchetti was an integral part of our legal team in our civil case. As I imagine is true in each individual case, we had a variety of concerns in entering this process. Our family, including our three teenage daughters, had been victimized by a violent act, we had no idea where to begin, and we felt vulnerable. We were also hugely concerned about the welfare of our daughters during this completely unfamiliar process. The outcome of our case was important, but the journey we were about to take required attorneys that we could trust implicitly. From the moment we met Adrianos his calm capability was obvious. He was genuinely concerned for our family and that concern continued over the three years we worked with him. Each step of the legal process was covered with us before it happened in terms we understood. He let us know what to expect each step of the way. During our journey together, from filing to settlement, Adrianos was professional, caring, and thorough. His exhaustive attention to each and every detail ensured that our case received every possible consideration. We would not hesitate to recommend Adrianos to friends or family in the event they required legal services. Having him on our team enabled us to reach a settlement in our case and move forward in our lives. We will always be grateful to him.

After being served with a defamation lawsuit, we did not know where to turn. My wife is a recent cancer survivor, so the last thing we needed was the stress and aggravation of a lawsuit.
From the moment we spoke with Adrianos on the phone, we knew we were in good hands. At our initial consultation, he listened patiently and then explained our options.
Adrianos filed a brilliant anti-SLAPP motion on our behalf, which stopped the plaintiff and their attorney dead in their tracks. The defamation suit was dropped and Adrianos negotiated an excellent settlement in which the plaintiff ended up paying us.
In addition to being a great attorney, we found Adrianos to be a sincere, compassionate person. Throughout the process, it was evident that he had our best interests at heart, and had genuine concern for how all this would affect our family.
If we ever have ANY sort of legal issue in the future Adrianos Facchetti will be the first person called!

Attorney Facchetti listened to me and researched the details of a defamation civil suit against me. He wrote a detailed, well organized and excellent motion that was impressive and knowledgeable. He was professional at all times and kept me informed of all options. I would highly recommend him.

I was sued for online reviews I had posted. I did quite a bit of research and found Adrianos Facchetti. I am so happy I did. He is honest, extremely knowledgeable and sharp. He won my case and out shined the defense in every way. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone!

After reviewing a Dr.’s office service and billing practices on Vitals.com and subsequently receiving a threatening email with a defamation law suit if I did not remove such review, a good friend of mine, who is a lawyer, recommend I contact Mr. Facchetti.
Mr. Faccetti, was prompt to respond, he patiently heard my situation, and clearly and directly explained my options.
I would definitely recommend Mr. Facchetti, he is direct, to the point, and at the same time very personable.

I contacted Mr. Facchetti when I found myself in the mess of SLAPP suits for my review and updates on Yelp!
The Plaintiff has filed defamation suit and civil harassment suit on me. After some research on-line I figured that this is not something you need to take easy especially when you are being slapped for your constitutional rights to a free speech!
I contacted a few attorneys but many of them did not even want to talk to me unless I pay for an hour of their time. Not to say that this is wrong but what can be done in an hour? What if you don't get a good impression then you either stuck with the attorney you don't feel good about after that hour or you go to another one and again start from hourly consultation.
To me a free brief consultation on the particular case is like a sign of good faith and honorable intentions from an attorney.
This is exactly what Mr. Facchetti did. He called me the next day I submitted my issue to him. In a short phone call he briefly but clearly explained to me what I should potentially expect regardless whether or not I hire him.
Honesty is what everyone is looking for in an attorney! This is rare but if this is important to you then look no further.
I also would like to point that Mr. Facchetti's website is very information and not in regards to his education or experience but on the topics he practices!
As much as it is important to know that the person you are about to pay thousands of dollars to has some good educational and professional background it is a lot more valuable to read his/her thoughts on the subject that is very important to you now.
Mr. Facchetti's site http://www.defamationlawblog.com is very informative and lets people know that he not only spends his time for the big bills but takes some time to educate the public on the issue for free. There are plenty of people who can not afford an attorney and this site is priceless in this case.
Turned out (unfortunately on my own experience:) defamation and SLAPPs are very complicated matters and very few attorneys are actually knowledgeable in this area of expertise so don't play with it, let him help you!

My family and I were victims of verbal threats and bodily harm made from a co-worker at work . Those threats were IMMEDIATELY reported to my employer. That same co-worker approached my family and myself outside of work and tried to engage into a verbal altercation. A false police report was filed by that co-worker and he tried to convince a judge to issue a restraining order stating "I was now the threat." This was retaliation for reporting his prior threats to my employer. Thinking his actions would even the playing field Mr. Facchetti responded quickly and with precision. A letter was written with strong language that not only included a comprehensive background of the complaintant, Adrianos reminded this co-worker of his past history of family violence and his need for an attorney to help explain his actions. Needless to say all charges were dropped and the matter is now back in the hands of my employer. Had Mr. Facchetti not acted on my behalf, I could have been a victim twice over. Adrianos professionalism and legal prowess was of great value in a time of un-certainty.
Thank you for your personal attention and quick responses to my texts, emails and telephone calls. I highly recommend Adrianos Facchetti. JOB WELL DONE !

Search for anti-SLAPP expert on Google and there's Facchetti!
And for good reason. We faced an early wash-out on a anti-SLAPP challenge and the judge was unfamiliar with anti-SLAPP and about to rule against us... Adrianos patiently explained the anti-SLAPP rulings and why the judge would be creating a new negative anti-SLAPP precedent if we were ruled against.
Adrianos' patient explanation along with copious examples of applicable prior decisions got the judge to listen and rule in our favor.
Well done, counselor!
