Defending a Breach of Contract Litigation Case In Kendall County

Litigation Attorneys Skilled in Contract Disputes and Breach of Contract Claims

Sean Robertson and the Lawyers of Gateville Law Firm assist with breach of contract claims in Kendall County.  A breach occurs when one party violates a term of the contract that amounts to damages or harm to the other party.

One of the critical issues in any contract case is the interpretation of the contract. A contract can be either an oral agreement or written document. Contracts typically describe key terms and elements involved in an agreement. Contract disputes are very common and will continue to grow in Illinois and Kendall County during and after the COVID crisis.

Securing legal representation is crucial in a breach of contract claim because defendants typically do not understand the complexities of court proceedings. Often times defendants, without legal representation, discuss their disputes with the plaintiff or plaintiff’s counsel. This leads to miscommunication and misunderstanding which negatively affect defendants who believe they have an understanding with the opposing party but later find out there was a judgement awarded against them. These judgements without legal representation are difficult to maneuver and often times lead to financial struggles and/or credit score drops.

Motions to Vacate Default Judgments in Yorkville and Kendall County Illinois

Generally, a defendant finds out that they have acquired a judgment against them and want to know their rights and responsibilities. In Kendall County, defendants have a right to file a motion to vacate for a non-final judgment or court order during the course of litigation under 735 ILCS 5/2-1301(e).  After a period of 30 days, it is much harder to file a successful motion to vacate a default judgment or final order, leaving defendants without options. Gateville Law Firm will assist you in a timely fashion to ensure you are protected in a breach of contract claim.

Filing an Answer or Responsive Pleadings

One of the critical duties of a defendant’s attorney is to file an answer or responsive pleadings within 30 days, or as soon as possible.  Typically, during a breach of contract litigation over $10,000, the defendant has 30 days to file a response to the Plaintiff’s contract claim case.  A response means an answer, a motion to vacate, or another reply to the Plaintiff’s complaint depending on the facts and circumstances of the case and litigation proceedings. Gateville Law Firm will take care of these answers and ensure your legal matters are being attended to in a timely manner.
