On average, contract dispute cases contribute to almost 70% of the cases in the court systems. And, contract dispute cases cost litigants an average of $91,000. Many times, these costs could have been avoided with a simple review by a licensed attorney before the contract was signed. Unfortunately, most people assume that the cost or inconvenience will be too high to have an attorney review the contract.
That's where we come in.
