West Palm Beach Firm Sues Over Fraudulent Copy of its Own Website

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Gordon & Doner, West Palm Beach injury attorneys, have filed suit against an unknown copier as John Doe, and GoDaddy.com after learning its own website, fortheinjured.com, had been copied and passed off as a British law firm, maslinassociates.com.

Except for some minor changes, the fraudulent site used, in many cases, the same text, designs and even photographs of the attorneys.

“It’s really strange,” said Adam Doner, whose photo was used on the copied site and identified as Evans Maslin. “Talk about identity theft. The public needs to be aware of this. I can’t believe we’re the only one this has happened to.”

McHale & Slavin in Palm Beach Gardens will represent Gordon & Doner in the trademark infringement suit, along with Doner. “Our lawyer, Michael Slavin, surmises that it may be a ploy to knock us down on Google,” Doner said.

Gordon & Doner spends thousands monthly to rank high in the Google search engine. “A competitor could do this,” Doner said. “This Google and Yahoo stuff is very competitive.”
