Houston contract attorney David C. Holmes can help you avoid contract disputes from the beginning.

The nature of contract disputes for employers

The most common forms of contract disputes are contained within the following areas:

  • Partnership agreements
  • Operating agreements
  • Shareholder agreements
  • Non-compete and/or non-disclosure terms
  • Handbook misinterpretations

At the Law Offices of David C. Holmes in Houston, reaching a contract agreement is the ultimate goal. We help our clients by consulting on employee handbooks, drafting new contracts for future use and providing solid advice about your options if an employee reneges on the contract.

Understanding your rights as an employee

Employers aren’t the only ones who need to be protected from a breach of contract. Our firm can help you resolve potential contract disputes by reviewing:

  • Your hours. You may encounter a breach of contract if your employer is withholding wages. We review your work schedule and time sheets to prove that you’re owed money in regular wages or overtime pay.
  • Your severance. Severance packages aren’t required by law. They’re a perk given to you by an employer. We gather evidence, look at contracts and interview employers to determine whether or not you’re entitled to a larger severance package than you’ve received.
  • Non-compete clauses. In some cases non-compete clauses can make it very difficult for you to find work in your field. We can determine whether you should go to court over a non-compete clause.

Houston employment attorney David C. Holmes works with you personally to help resolve any problems you may have with your contract. He offers sound, honest advice about whether or not you have a legitimate claim in order to save you time and money in the long run.
