I'm not usually one to start a thread, but here goes. I'm working on a memoir that digs the claws in (as a good memoir should!!) to some family members.
I am very aware of keeping myself above board and to not make 'outrageous' claims, but there are 'skeletons in the closet' type instances that I would want to run by a GOOD defamation lawyer.
I remember about 12 months ago Writing Magazine ran an editorial about this exact topic. As would happen to all of us (who aren't particularly organised) I cannot find the copy.
Has any TBer had occasion to use, or is in a position to refer/recommend a suitable professional? I would rather do it from here than blindly from the 'net.
