Breach of Contract

When the terms of a contract are unfulfilled by one or more parties a contract is said to be "breached" or the party is said to be in "non-performance." Unless both parties have agreed to changes in the terms of the contract or the actions of one party have implicitly been accepted by the action or non-action of the other party all terms of a contract must be honored. Otherwise, a contract breach has occurred and a breach of contract lawyer should be called in to review the situation.

Obvious non-performance is a simple matter. Breach of Contract becomes more difficult to pursue when the case turns on issues of the quality of materials or service and the timely completion of a contract.

Contract breach leaves the nonperforming or improperly performing party open to a claim for damages by the other party. The non-breaching party is relieved of their obligations under the contract by the other party's breach. If you feel you've been the victim of non-performance or breach of contract call our office now, we can help.
