Enforceability of Non-Compete Agreements

Law Office of David M. Goldman represents individuals  located in Jacksonville, Florida and areas including Duval, St. Johns, Ponte Vedra Beach, with issues relating to non-compete agreements.

We help individuals evaluate the enforceability of their Florida non-compete agreements.

In addition, we evaluate the enforceability of individual non-compete agreements with their employers to see if they are valid under Florida Law.  This analysis often involves looking at how a court would likely to view the agreement if it is challenged.

Jacksonville and Florida based Non-compete agreements must be analyzed as of the date they were entered into. There are separate rules based upon the date they were executed.   We evaluate Florida non-compete agreements that were entered into prior to June 28, 1990, from June 28-1990 until June 28, 1996, and those entered into on or after July 1, 1996.

Most recent Florida Non-Compete Agreements are evaluated on the reasonableness as to time, geographic area, and business area to be restricted.   Even if the agreement appears to be unreasonable a court may reduce the restrictions through a process called blue lining. It is important to deal with trade secrets, valuable confidential business or professional information, substantial relationships with specific prospective or existing clients, customers, and their goodwill associated with ongoing business, trade names, trade marks, geographic location as well as any extraordinary specialized training.

If you are trying to protect yourself and know what your rights are in a relationship with an employment agreement you are a part of please call us for an evaluation at (904) 685-1200 or contact a Jacksonville Non-Compete Lawyer online.

We will prepare a non compete agreement for your firm for $750 (including 1 hour of customizations) and review your non compete agreement for $450 including up to 1 hour of time with you to explain the options and risks.
Client Reviews
After years of trying to protect my assets from creditors, I was shocked to find out that my assets were unprotected in ways I had never considered. Not only had I placed my assets at risk from my mother's creditors, but I had placed my assets at risk from other family members who were intent on manipulation. When my mother died, I discovered that a family member had changed my mother's estate planning documents. Mr. Goldman and his team were able to explain what went wrong and successfully defended my position in court. During the case, I learned that I could have had much better protection from family and creditors, thus avoiding years of litigation and undue familial stress. When it comes to protecting your assets and your family, I would highly recommend hiring Mr. Goldman and his team. Bill H.
As a real estate agent, I have been involved with many property transactions where I needed a probate attorney to help facilitate the transaction. I have used the services of Mr. Goldman and his staff over the last several years and continue to use them on a regular basis. His office has been able to navigate the court system and help estates sell their property quickly and efficiently. In addition, Mr. Goldman can help real estate investors structure trusts to protect their assets from creditors. Michael Starling
This office is fantastic. I was faced with a horrible situation and this office helped to put an end to the untenable situation. Ms. Kendal Schoepfer was always available before, during, and after office hours to answer any questions that I had. I highly recommend this law office to all. Tisha Brown
