EDWARDSVILLE — A construction company is suing Sparks Law Office for allegedly failing to terminate a sales agreement, resulting in a lawsuit.

Resource Construction LLC filed a complaint on June 23 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Carol Sparks and Sparks Law Office, PC, alleging they failed to possess and use the knowledge, skill, and care ordinarily used by a reasonably careful attorney.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that between May 2015 and September 2015, the defendants represented Resource Construction in regard to a real estate sales transaction with Gloria Fields Realty, Inc. 

However, the plaintiff claims that on July 2, 2015, the defendants failed to terminate the sales agreement between Gloria Fields Realty, and the inspection period called for in the agreement had expired. 

As a result, Gloria Fields Realty filed a lawsuit on Aug. 17, 2015 against Resource Construction in the amount of $20,000. 

The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to terminate the real estate sales agreement between the plaintiff and Gloria Fields Realty in accordance with the termination clause of the agreement.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in an amount in excess of $50,000, plus attorney's fees, costs of suit, and such other and further relief as the court deems just and proper. 

It is represented by Patricia A. Zimmer of Ripplingter & Zimmer, LLC in Belleville.
