Breach of Contract Lawyer Orange County

A breach of contract is a failure, without legal excuse, to perform any promise that forms all or part of the contract. If the party does not fulfill his contractual promise, or has given information to the other party that he will not perform his duty as mentioned in the contract or if by his action and conduct he seems to be unable to perform the contract, he is said to breach the contract.

A breach of contract can also include failure to perform in a manner that meets the standards of the industry or other requirements. These types of broken promises are all too common in business transactions and generally leave one party to suffer financially. An experienced breach of contract lawyer will ensure that you are not taken advantage of.

Proving a Breach of Contract

There are two main types of contract breaches: material and partial. A material breach occurs when the duty not performed is so essential that the main purpose of the contract cannot be fulfilled.  A partial, or minor, breach is less severe than a material breach, but no less significant. A breach is a breach.
Regardless of the type of contract breach, it will be necessary to prove four elements:

  • The contract existed.
  • The contract was broken.
  • You lost money.
  • The defendant was responsible.
