If you’ve ever signed a contract, you’ve probably wondered whether you should get an attorney involved to review the agreement to make sure you’re being treated fairly and all your interests are looked after. Often we’re told that a contract is “standard” or given a summary of what the agreement entails, but how do you know?

The wording of a contract is crucial, so whether it’s a personal or business agreement, you stand to benefit from having an attorney review it before signing. The attorney can also help draft or revise an agreement to better suit your specific needs.

Benefits of Hiring a Contract Attorney

Hiring an attorney to review, revise or draft a contract gives you the confidence that you’re getting what you expected out of the agreement. Many times stock contracts are used to save money or time, but without being reviewed by an attorney a contract could contain pitfalls you weren’t aware of.

In certain cases, stock contracts contain boilerplate language that isn’t adapted to local and state laws and is easily broken. It’s important that your agreement protects your specific interests and doesn’t just pertain to a general situation.

An attorney can also help you negotiate the terms of a contract in order to get you a better deal or advise you to consider alternatives. If you’re presented with a finalized contract, your attorney can suggest additional clauses or draft changes to the contract that will protect your interests.
