I have an investment contract with a local business. I was suppose to get 30% of profits monthly. They have defaulted on the agreement. What can I do?

When a party breaches a contract, the first step is to review the contract and see if there are any provisions for a remedy against the breaching party. Once that has been determined, the next step is to prepare a demand letter to the breaching party for damages from the breach. If the other party does not comply with the demand letter, the non-breaching party would need to pursue a civil suit against the breaching party for the damages.

What are your fees to take a look at a case like this?

I am sorry. Unfortunately, the JustAnswer terms of service prohibit me from being retained as an attorney.

However, a good attorney should be willing to meet with you for an initial consultation to review the case at no charge.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
