Frivolous Lawsuits / SLAPP Claims

Philadelphia Frivolous Lawsuits & SLAPP Claims Attorneys

Serving Pennsylvania & New Jersey

Was the Justice System Wrongfully Used against You?

Weisberg Law represents clients in the wrongful use of civil proceedings or abuse of process claims. Particularly, we represent consumers in business fraud cases involving malicious or frivolous claims/SLAPP claims (Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation).

These lawsuits are meant to intimidate or threaten another party by burdening the party with the costs of a frivolous lawsuit. For example, a corporation can file a defamation claim against individuals for making claims against the corporation. The additional time, attorney fees, and punitive and emotional damages suffered can be compensated if abuse of process is found.

If you are a victim of wrongful use of civil proceedings, discuss your potential to file a claim with a frivolous lawsuit/SLAPP claims attorney from Weisberg Law. Contact us online or call (610) 550-8042 to set up a free initial consultation.

Wrongful Use of Civil Proceedings

When a party crosses the line with a frivolous lawsuit or SLAPP claim, we will be there to immediately fight back with a claim of our own. Corporations and creditors cannot just bring lawsuits without legal authority in an attempt to threaten or scare off debtors and other individuals.

In essence, you can sue the other party for suing you due to the party's wrongful use of civil proceedings. All claims in civil proceedings must be made in good faith. Parties are severely reprimanded if they are found to be abusing the system and the civil court system's process.

There are also ethical implications involving attorneys who knowingly file frivolous claims. At Weisberg Law, we are skilled and experienced with interdisciplinary/ethical violation claims against attorneys and can help you with those.

What Happens If I'm Facing A SLAPP Lawsuit?

Litigation can be expensive and time-consuming. In some cases, the cost of litigation is not worth the finances or effort involved. That is why anti-SLAPP laws allow the individual or entity being sued to recover damages if it is shown that the lawsuit has no merit.

Pennsylvania passed anti-SLAPP legislation in 2015, which means you may have a successful claim if you reach out to a frivolous lawsuit/SLAPP claims attorney in Philadelphia for help.
