Contracts

The Law Offices of Thomas J. Donnelly has been serving the Tampa Bay area since 1980. We are happy to assist you in drafting contracts, leases, and agreements, or assisting you in contract disputes.

A contract is an agreement between two or more parties and can be either written or oral. The parties to a contract can agree to almost anything, so long as it is not illegal, and be bound by that agreement. Contracts have application in many areas of everyday life. Residential leases and rental agreements, purchase agreements, and insurance policies are examples of the different types of contracts to which you may be a party. When one party breaches the terms of a contract, the other party generally has the right to sue to enforce the terms of that contract.

An attorney is often involved in preparing a contract to ensure it meets the requirements of the law. However, more often an attorney will become involved in a contract dispute once one party has breached the contract.

In a contract dispute your attorney will review the terms of the contract and help you determine the best course of action. Many contract disputes can be resolved by negotiating with the other party. However, if a lawsuit is necessary, you will seek to enforce the contract and be compensated for damages resulting from the breach of the contract.

During your initial appointment with our firm, your attorney will review the contract and work with you to identify any damages related to a breach of contract.
