Staten Island, NY asked in Civil Litigation for New Jersey

Q: Can I sue a General Agency for terminating my contract and violating the terms of the contract?

I’m a health insurance broker in NJ. My General Agent has without my consent advised the health insurance carrier to alter the expiration date on our contract. The carrier is now holding my commissions and won’t release them as agreed in our contract. Can someone please advise?

But, from these facts (without knowing any more) it appears as if you might. With modern technology, you can be represented by any high-quality attorney in New Jersey irrespective of geography.
