Attorney Profile

Aaron M. Minc has developed a nationwide reputation as a leading lawyer in the field of internet defamation. The founder of Cleveland, Ohio-based Defamation Removal Law, he provides representation to individuals, businesses, nonprofit organizations and government institutions in matters involving internet extortion, competitor defamation, content removal, cyber-bullying, online harassment, revenge porn, and similar issues.

Mr. Minc has litigated hundreds of these types of cases throughout the U.S. and abroad, and he has been able to obtain favorable verdicts as well as temporary and permanent injunctions. In one representative matter, he obtained a permanent injunction that resulted in the removal of a website started by a woman trying to extort a high-profile chief executive officer. In another, Mr. Minc obtained a sizable settlement on behalf of a physician who was being defamed by a competitor on patient review websites.

As an undergraduate, Mr. Minc attended Miami University, where he majored in finance and received a Bachelor of Science in 2007. He pursued his legal education at Case Western Reserve University School of Law and was the president of the school's Sports & Entertainment Law Society before being awarded his Juris Doctor cum laude in 2010. He was a partner at an area law firm before founding his current firm in 2017. Admitted to practice before all Ohio state courts, Mr. Minc is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Courts for the Northern and Southern Districts of Ohio and the Supreme Court of the United States.

Mr. Minc is frequently asked to deliver presentations on topics related to his practice area. In 2017, he spoke at the annual convention of the American Psychological Association dealing with online client complaints and grievances. He is a member of the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association.
