Contracts

Disputes involving peoples’ contractal relationships are highly significant. Drafting people’s contractual agreements properly is an important process in avoiding disputes and possible legal problems down the road. Regardless of this, contractal disputes can and do arise which require legal resolution. After a contractual dispute arises, we can help our clients understand the complex array of legal issues involved and provide reccomendations concerning how to protect your legal and financial interests either by enforcing your legal rights under a valid contract or in allowing a party to escape the confines of a contract that is not valid and legally binding.

While most cases involving contractual disputes are only handled under a retainer agreement with an hourly billable fee, there are instances where the firm will work with our clients on an alternative fee basis. Under certain facts and circumstances, the firm may handle your contract litigation on a contingency fee basis, which means that our clients are only obligated to pay a fee if the firm successfully resolves the litigation in the client’s favor. In other circumstances, the firm can work with our clients by providing representation at a reduced hourly billing rate along with a reduced contingency fee arrangement, which allows the firm’s clients the flexibility they may need in order to be able to assert their claims in court. It is the goal of The Law Office of Stephen O’Rear, P.C. to provide our clients with the right fee arrangement that gives our clients the greatest flexibility depending on the type of contractual dispute they are involved in.

Under Texas law there is a limitation on the amount of time to file a lawsuit if you are involved in a dispute with an individual or company that has breached their contractual obligations with you, so call today for a free consultation to discuss your rights.
