In Michigan you would have a very difficult time finding an attorney to handle that matter without a very large cash retainer. Defamation cases or emotional distress cases are very expensive to prosecute and more often than not have to go through trial and there is no insurance to cover the case. This means that collecting on a judgment, if any, is difficult. If she is walking the street as you indicate in your question, most attorneys would not feel they could make a recovery for their hard efforts. If you are very wealthy and want pay alot of money to an attorney to file the suit, I trust you can find an attorney to handle it. Good luck
