Contract lawyers have experience writing contracts and agreements; they know the correct contract formats and legal terms to protect and enhance your rights in case things don't go as planned. Should you need to sue someone, a written contract gives the judge a basis for determining your rights. If you want to draw up a legal agreement, if you're wondering if you can get out of a contract that's gone bad, or if you believe that someone has not lived up to the terms of a contract, you should consult a contract lawyer.
