When two sides are far apart on the terms of a contemplated agreement, an attorney is not likely to breach the divide. A contract can be described as the memorialization of an agreement. And that's something every client who hires an attorney should keep in mind. It's also something I explain to my clients in an initial consultation -- I cannot force the other side to sign a contract that I, or even the other side's attorney, has drafted. I cannot even force my own client to sign it. It must voluntary and it must represent a real agreement between the parties.
Sometimes clients want the attorney to make an agreement happen. And often it is possible to do that -- if both sides are willing.
If you need representation in the negotiation of an agreement, please call me, Greg DePaul, Esq., at (973) 376-8585.
