You have started your business for services.  You have developed a webpage, business cards and various advertisements to promote your  business.  You have also created a standard contract that you will use in your business dealings.  One element of a contract that is often overlooked by small business owners is the attorney fees provision.  While standard contracts allow you to sue for breach, without the attorney fee provision you will end up paying your own attorney fees, which may cost more than the amount you are seeking to collect.

Our tip to you is to include an attorney fees provision in your contract, so that you can collect your attorney fees from the other side if you prevail in the action.
