We have a small general contracting business. We hired David H. Ricks to represent us on a case that we originally lost at the small claims level. We were extremely satisfied at how he became completely knowledgeable with our case. David thoroughly impressed us at how he thundered away at the opposition. Needless to say, we won the “second” case hands down as Attorney David H. Ricks anticipated. We highly endorse his law firm.

I would highly recommend David Ricks & Associates! From the moment my wife and I brought our case to him, he made us feel that he would do everything in his power to fight for us. That's just what he did. His communication with us was always prompt and precise and his fees were reasonable. It was a pleasure to have David Ricks as our attorney in a tough and stressful situation.

We are a small electrical contracting business here in the Inland Empire. Most of our work is done for public municipalities and sometimes it can be difficult to collect money for our work. David Ricks has taken the uncertainty out of getting paid, and has come to our defense on several occassions. I highly recommend David H. Ricks & Associates.
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.
