    Default Counter Sue for Attorney Fees

    My question involves court procedures for the state of: Nebraska.

    We sold a home 9 months ago and are being sued by the buyers for work they claim was not satisfactory. The work was paid for by us and completed. They have no case basically. Now I have to spend money to retain an attorney. Can I get those fees paid back by the buyer if I win the case?

    Check your sales contract to see if it has a bilateral attorney fee provision. If it does, you might be able to recover attorney fees. The best person to ask, of course, is your attorney.

    That depends. Is the buyer suing for breach of contract or something else? If the buyer is suing for breach of contract, does the contract have a provision that, in any litigation arising out of the contract, the prevailing party may recover his/her/its attorneys' fees from the other party?
