What is the purpose of mediation?

Disputes that require the need to go to court can be extremely costly and time-consuming. It is easy for these situations to drag on and leave those involved dealing with them for an unknown length of time. Because of the difficulties that can be faced, many individuals or businesses choose to go the route of mediation. This allows for the disputing parties to work together in hopes they will come to an agreement or resolution outside of court, while working with the professional guidance and advice of a skilled attorney. While it is not the same situation and need as those in court, an attorney can provide great benefits for those looking to prevent their case from requiring further legal intervention. They can also seek to make sure their client is not taken advantage of or given a solution that will prove less than satisfactory later down the line.

What can I do if a contract has been breached?

A contract is a legal document in which parties make a sort of promise or commitment. More than just giving your word, a contract is binding. Unfortunately, they are not always kept and a party may attempt to override the terms that have been agreed upon. Contracts can be critical to the health of a business and its operations. Most businesses will be parties to many contracts for varying purposes. When a contract is breached, legal action may need to be taken to hold the breaching party liable to what was agreed upon. It is important to maintain at least a copy of the contract since without it there may be insufficient evidence that an agreement existed. Damages may be sought for the breach of contract in many cases for the purpose of putting the non-breaching business or individual to the position they would have been in had the breach not happened.

Do I need an attorney?

Not everyone necessarily needs an attorney, but the better question to ask is how an attorney can help. Many people try to handle their cases on their own, believing that a professional is too expensive and looking to avoid the cost. In the end, many of these people actually hurt themselves by failing to work with a lawyer that may have gained them far better results than they could accomplish on their own. The advantages and end result of working with a skilled legal professional can outweigh the cost in many cases.
