RE: De Novo Legal, LLP and Pollie Gautsch

Dear Karen:

I am writing on behalf of De Novo Legal, LLP and Pollie Gautsch, regarding the unauthorized use of the website images as well as the libelous and malicious statements directed to Pollie Gautsch on your website

Our client has just become aware of your website and is very concerned regarding the defamatory statements and requests they immediately be removed. As you may be aware, the award to a plaintiff in a suit for defamation will usually include punitive, as well as compensatory, damages.

At this time, our client is willing to settle this matter without resorting to legal action, provided that you agree to the following in writing within five (5) days of the date of this letter:

1. To immediately remove any mention of De Novo Legal, LLP and Pollie Gautsch from your website, links and metatags.

2. Agree to refrain from any additional defamation of De Novo Legal, LLP or Pollie Gautsch.

Thank you for your anticipated cooperation. We look forward to working with your office on this matter. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me directly.



George Rikos
