Breach of Contract

Breach of contract disputes arise because one side or the other fails to fulfill the obligations it promised to fulfill.  Many times the contract is oral, and the terms of the contract are unclear.  Even written contracts can be unclear as to what each side agreed to do, and when they would do it.  Litigation is therefore necessary sometimes to establish the terms of the contract.  These disputes can often be resolved by amicable settlement, making court litigation unnecessary.  Other times, however, going to court is the only way to resolve the dispute and we are ready and able to see your case through to this end.

Our attorney’s are skilled litigators who are well informed on the ever changing common law on contracts.  We look forward to assisting you in resolving your contractual disputes.
