Breach of Contract

Breach of contract entitles the party whose contractual rights are denied to recover under several remedies. Depending on the circumstances, the breaching party may be held responsible for compensatory damages, circumstantial damages, expectation damages, court costs, and attorney fees.

Rick Moore has many years of experience in negotiations and litigation in the area of contracts. Many times a simple letter to the other party will suffice to resolve the dispute. At other times, one must sue to recover.

Where there is a clear breach of the contract, summary disposition can shorten the process. This is a pre-trial motion where the court rules on the documents and affidavits submitted in the case and determines if there is a breach and the measure of financial damage.

Before you make any decision to litigate, it is important that you evaluate the likelihood of recovery from the defendant. You can’t get blood out of a turnip, as the old saying goes.
