Talk to a Lawyer Before Signing a Contract

When you sign a contract, you have a duty to read the agreement first and to understand exactly what you are agreeing to.  A lack of understanding about the terms of the contract does not excuse you from fulfilling its terms.   Likewise, a contract that you fail to read fully is still going to be legally binding on you.

This means that if you have any doubts at all about whether a contract is in your best interests or not, you should avoid signing the agreement.  If you are being pressured to sign the agreement quickly, especially before consulting with a lawyer, then you definitely should insist on waiting. There is virtually no legitimate reason why you would not be given a brief period of time to consult with a lawyer before signing the contract. If you are pressured to sign without first getting a legal opinion, this could be a red flag that the contract is disadvantageous to you.

Your attorney can help to ensure that the contract is sufficiently protective of your interests, and may be able to negotiate a better agreement that allows you to achieve your objects. At Sepahi Law Group APC, we have extensive experience facilitating agreements to ensure that the deal gets done but that it is also as advantageous to you as possible under the circumstances.
