Contracts Can Be Confusing

Legal documents are not drafted to intentionally deceive. The language of the law, however, can be vague and confusing. A good lawyer can interpret the wording.

The landlord who tries to use an invalid lease will change his or her mind as they discover that a lawyer has read the agreement. Continue reading

Data breaches are becoming analogous with armed robbery in our society. Hackers can scale security walls of major retail companies. Best Buy is only the latest retail chain to have its data security compromised. Kmart, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Panera Bread have all experienced data theft.

The greatest danger is the volume. Thousands of people are getting their personal financial information compromised. Hackers have become more sophisticated in an industry which is now worldwide. They do more than just set up bogus credit card accounts; they sell batches of data to other criminal organizations. They, in turn, maximize the losses. It is becoming easy for felons to invade credit card and bank accounts.

Contracts are a mystery to many people. These are pages of paper with language that ordinarily is not used that spells out obligations and consequences. It can drive a person crazy trying to understand any of the sentences.
