QUESTION: DO I HAVE AN ENFORCEABLE ELECTRONIC AGREEMENT WITH A VALID ELECTRONIC SIGNATURE, OR NOT?
ANSWER: WHEN SOMEONE DENIES THEY INTENDED TO SIGN AN ELECTRONIC DOCUMENT, IT CAN BE DIFFICULT TO ENFORCE AN ELECTRONIC AGREEMENT.

With the written signature, you would need handwriting experts to prove the authenticity.
