Experience in the business world and in the courtroom, create a powerful combination to effectively pursue or defend most business matters faced by small to medium sized businesses. David H. Ricks understands the needs of small and medium sized businesses and has aggressively and successfully represented these business men and women against much larger businesses with much larger litigation budgets.
While experience is extremely important, there are also other aspects for your consideration when hiring an attorney to handle your business case. For example, are the legal fees reasonable and designed for your success, not just the lawyer’s pocket book. Consider the location of the attorney’s office to both you and the courthouse where the case(s) will be handled. Attorneys with a nearby office will reduce your travel expense, the attorney’s cost for traveling and ease the inconvenience of meeting with your attorney. Further, after hiring your attorney, when he/she has to attend court, the cost to you will be reduced because the travel expense is minimized. David H. Ricks, with his Rancho Cucamonga, California office is less than a few minutes from the Rancho Cucamonga Superior Court and less than an hour from nearly every court routinely frequented such as San Bernardino Superior Court, Riverside Superior Court and Los Angeles Superior Court, East District. This means you pay for more legal services and for less time on the freeway.

Civil Code section 1549 provides: “A contract is an agreement to do or not to do a certain thing.” Courts have defined the term as follows: “A contract is a voluntary and lawful agreement, by competent parties, for good consideration, to do or not to do a specified thing.” (Robinson v. Magee (1858) 9 Cal. 81, 83.)
A breach of contract is when one or more parties fail to perform the agreement entered into prior to the performance of the specified thing.
This is probably one of the most often asked questions of me when I start my review of a breach of contract case. Whether a case proceeds to litigation often depends on the ability to recover the cost of attorney’s fees from the opposing party. I often see businesses or individuals that are owed $20,000.00 or less from someone that did not pay for the services or did not pay on a loan.
