Breach Of Contract

Enforcing Your Contract Rights in Florida

Contracts are an essential part of any successful business. A well-drafted contract will clearly set forth each party's duties under the contract. However, a contract does not provide any guarantee that the other party will live up to their part of the bargain.

If you or your company lost money because of a breach of contract, we can help you explore options for recovering your losses. If someone has sued you for a breach of contract and you have a viable excuse for non-performance, you need to protect your rights. If you have been served with a Summons and Complaint, you must respond quickly or a default judgment might be entered against you.

Let our Miami law firm help you protect your bottom line by enforcing your contract rights. Call 800-618-9938 or contact us to discuss your breach of contract claim with an experienced business attorney. Our business litigation attorneys represent both plaintiffs (people who are suing for breach of contract) and defendants (people who are being sued).

What is a breach of contract?

In legal terms, a breach of contract occurs when one party fails to do something they agreed to do in the contract (or does something they promised not to do). The breach may involve failure to pay for goods delivered or services rendered. It may be providing inferior or substandard merchandise, or failing to deliver goods on time.

How does The Levey Law Firm, P. A. handle breach of contract lawsuits?

If another person or company has breached its contract with you, we send the party a letter demanding that they fulfill their obligations. If they refuse to do so, or it is too late to prevent harm, we file a breach of contract lawsuit on your behalf. The lawsuit will seek an award of damages for damages caused by the breach of contract. It will also ask for all interest due and your attorney fees, if recoverable under Florida law or your contract.

In some cases, such as unpaid loans or promissory notes, we may be able to obtain a summary judgment without spending the time and money for a trial. Generally, summary judgment is available when there is no dispute about the facts and it is clear that you are entitled to a judgment in your favor.
