Contract Law & Landlord-Tenant Law

Contract Law


Most transactions conducted today, whether between individuals or entities, are done through the use of contracts.  A contract is a binding agreement between two parties that sets terms for a transaction, including price, time of performance, goods/services, quantity, and the parties themselves.  It is essential to know what to do if you entered a contract and things have not turned out the way you expected.  More than likely, a party has breached the contract.  This occurs when one side of a contract does not live up to the agreed-upon terms.  When this happens the other party can sue for any damages that resulted from the breach.  If you entered into a contract and now face a failed performance by the other party, Patrice can help you enforce your legal rights.


Landlord-Tenant Law


A tenancy agreement (lease or month to month) between a landlord and a tenant is a legally binding contract.  Both parties have stated rights and duties.  If you are entering into a landlord-tenant agreement or if you believe your contract has been violated, you should seek legal counsel to protect and enforce your legal rights.


While some disagreements between landlords and tenants can be resolved easily and quickly, others can involve complex paperwork and lengthy litigation.  If you find yourself in a lease dispute, non-payment dispute, or eviction, it is best to seek the assistance of an experienced attorney who can help you navigate through the legal intricacies of the situation.  Patrice's range of services in landlord-tenant disputes include:
