Paralegal Stephanie Spivack with Cohen & Slamowitz threatens with defamation suit

I received this deletion request today:

Subject: Remove My Name From This Website Now
Message:
Please take my name off of this website. If you do not, I will sue you for defamation of character. I was only a paralegal here not an attorney. I advised to my greatest ability. It was up to the attorneys to do anything further. Thank you for your assistance or else legal actions will occur.

I don’t think I ever accused Ms. Spivack of being an attorney, which could presumably be an insult and and be construed to be defamatory.  I certainly would feel defamed if I was accused of being a collection attorney.

Ms. Spivack is mentioned on this blog extensively because I posted my communications with her and of course I will NOT delete her name.

Any FALSE statement should be submitted to me along with the URL of the page containing the false statement and I will of course update and correct my publications.

Since my publications are truthful, Ms. Spivack cannot possibly prevail in a defamation suit.

It is quite likely that Ms. Spivack will either be a defendant in a widely publicized FDCPA lawsuit against Cohen & Slamowitz, its attorneys and collectors or she will be a witness.  Just like attorneys, paralegals working for collection firms are subject to the FDCPA.

I would certainly appreciate more information about the attorneys’ actions or non actions.

I might remove Ms. Spivack’s name if she chooses to switch sides and she assists with the prosecution of Cohen & Slamowitz and its attorneys.   Her testimony could be extremely helpful as Cohen & Slamowitz obviously disregarded the Miller ruling and blatantly continued to violate the FDCPA.

  1. I no longer work at Cohen & Slamowitz. I quit over a year ago. I don’t think my full name is necessary on your website. I did not do anything wrong. If anything I did everything right. I did my part.

  2. I’m glad to see that you don’t work for Cohen & Slamowitz anymore. Why did you quit?
