Breach of Contract

You don’t have to have a written contract to sue, or be sued for Breach of Contract. Anytime a party fails to perform an obligation as agreed, there is the potential for a Breach of Contract claim.

Once a contract is formed there are numerous circumstances in which a party can breach its terms, among them are material breaches, implied breaches, and anticipatory breaches of contract. Don’t let your business dealings go sour without having someone on your side to help you sort of breaches of contract.

Civil Litigation 

Criminal law and civil law operate on two separate procedural paths. The time frame, rules of engagement as well as the consequences and rewards for successful outcomes are fundamentally different.

Unlike in criminal law, there is no right to counsel in civil litigation. As a result, there is often a power imbalance where parties with access to counsel over parties without counsel who have trouble navigating the legal process. Regardless of your claim of right, protect your interest and hire an attorney.

Filing bankruptcy may be the best option to for you if you have large debts that you can’t afford to repay, or are behind in your mortgage payments and in danger of foreclosure, are being harassed by bill collectors—or all of the above.

Bankruptcy can, in some cases, reduce or eliminate your debts, save your home and keep the bill collectors at bay, but it also has serious consequences, including long-term damage to your credit score. That, in turn, can hamper your ability to borrow in the future, raise the rates you pay for borrowed money, and even make it difficult to get a job.

Liability Waiver.jpg

A Release is generally exactly what the term describes, it is an agreement to relinquish or give-up certain rights and privileges. As is the case with any contract, in order for a Release to be valid, there must be something valuable offered in exchange for the acting party giving-up their valuable rights and privileges. Fill-in the blank Release forms have been successfully challenged in court many times. Insulate yourself from liability, with a customized Release drafted to protect you and your customers.

Non-Disclosure (NDA)

Non-Compete

Establish a confidential relationship with your employees, clients and vendors through a Non-Disclosure Agreement. A well-crafted NDA should prevent competitors from obtaining trade secrets and proprietary information.

 

Non-compete agreements protect employers against unfair competition from current and former employees. Protect your business dealings from copy-cats.
