I was recently sued for defamation in San Diego, CA by a large corporation. The plaintiff alleged libel, slander, and false light. The case arose from an Internet post that I had made about the company. To defend me against this lawsuit, I researched a number of lawyers and then retained the services of defamation attorney Bruce Jaques Jr.
I consider myself very fortunate to have selected Mr. Jacques to represent me in this matter. He is exceptionally knowledgeable about the complexities of the law of defamation. Right away Mr. Jaques grasped the nuances of my case and prepared my defenses. He also approached the plaintiff's complaint in a careful, crafty way. First, using only legal arguments, he promptly persuaded the plaintiff to drop the cause of action for false light. I was thoroughly impressed and reassured by this result.
Second, Mr. Jaques took an active and aggressive approach to my defense. He accomplished this by filing a special "anti-SLAPP" motion and immediately engaged the plaintiff corporation. In only a few months, as opposed to the typical 12 to 18 months, Bruce Jaques had the libel and slander claims against me permanently dismissed. I paid the plaintiff nothing!
"We retained attorney Bruce Jaques to assist us with a delicate and very serious civil matter. There were many issues involved and our opponents were big names and well-established. Over a period of months, Bruce negotiated an excellent solution and our lives are much better due to his efforts. Bruce made the problem go away and his legal fees were reasonable. We highly recommend him.

Mr. Jaques is a very competent, attentive attorney. He was quick to respond to any questions I had or on the status of my case. I highly recommend him! In my experience most attorney's will take your money and then will be hard to get a hold of after that. Mr. Jaques is exactly the opposite of that, I was very happy with my service.
Bruce is just AWESOME!! He is a REAL PERSON, he'll tell you what's up, and doesn't lay out any BS. I've had more than my share of attorneys during my short life, so TRUST ME when I say, Bruce is the BEST ATTORNEY out there!! If you ever have the pleasure of speaking with him, YOU TOO will feel very confident in knowing that he does truely have YOUR BACK and WILL FIGHT FOR YOU!! So happy HE IS MY ATTORNEY!! I'm one of the LUCKY ONES!!
