I recently met a litigation lawyer who will be giving a talk in January for a Singular City event on the five mistakes most entrepreneurs make. Ironically, I asked her how crucial it was to have contracts and agreements in place and she said that with one of the top five mistakes--not getting a signed or written agreement. Luckily, I do all my negotiations via email so she said that was one great that I got something in writing because she actually won a case that favored the email agreement, but she says it's still important to get a contract in place to protect yourself and your business and to have an attorney look over it as well. After talking with her for quite awhile, I learned that she charges $400 per hour to draft a contract from scratch and $250 if I downloaded it free from somewhere else and have her just tailor a general agreement to serve my business needs. But where can I find good service agreements I can download for free. I check into legal zoom but I'm not sure if what I need is a service agreement form or an independent consulting form--what's the difference? FYI, the services I provide include freelance writing, editing and proofreading as well as SEO and SMM services.
