In the Book of “Proverbs” it is written that “life and death are in the power of the tongue”. As such, even one slanderous phrase or expression, and even more so a false statement published in public, may determine a personal or professional fate and cause undue harm to the recipient of the slander or to his or her family. As such, Defamation and Slander legal proceedings carry unique attributes, both in the substantive law and in the legal proceedings. Due to the unique attributes of the field, it is best for the legal counsel dealing with the case, to seriously consider each and every phase of the proceedings, and to ensure, as far as possible, complete transparency with the client regarding the case, while sharing with him or her the considerations involved in making the ongoing decisions in the case.
