A: If you believe the marketing company misrepresented the terms before you signed the contract, there may be grounds to contest it. Misrepresentation can occur when false statements or promises are made to induce someone into a contract.

First, review the contract thoroughly to understand its terms and any clauses about termination or dispute resolution. Compare what is written in the contract with what you were told verbally. It's crucial to identify any specific discrepancies between the verbal promises and the written agreement.

If you find significant differences, gather any evidence of these misrepresentations. This might include emails, text messages, or notes from meetings. Evidence is key in demonstrating that what was promised differs from what's in the contract.

You should then consider seeking legal advice. A lawyer can provide guidance on the strength of your case and the best approach to take. They can assist in negotiating with the company or, if necessary, taking legal action to resolve the issue.

Remember, every situation is unique, and the outcome can depend on the specific details of your case. It's important to act promptly and to keep a record of all communications regarding this matter.

A: These settings are all fact-specific. It could depend on the terms of the contract, what it was that you were told, whether it altered things materially, and other elements. An Arizona attorney could advise more definitively and meaningfully with additional details. Good luck
