Short Consulting Agreement Template

Short consulting agreement template – Can the free legal documents provided on the Net be a replacement for consulting with a lawyer?

In some cases, most definitely.

To provide a simple example: The law in your state may require a written contract for the sale of goods over a certain value. Or for that matter, you may choose to give your parent a power of attorney to sell something on your behalf whilst away on holiday. It does not need specialized legal knowledge to compile a bill of sale for a motorcycle, automobile or other goods or to draw a limited power of attorney.

Similarly, a young person without a lot of assets may want to draft a final will and testament or a living will. For many young people a conventional legal template can be used to create their documents and the forms can be downloaded free from the web, without incurring legal expenses. Of course, it will be a different case for a billionaire with several assets and a complex will where consultation with a legal and/or financial expert is invaluable.

Many parents recognize the need for a medical consent form for a babysitter in the event of a medical emergency. Or they might require a broader temporary guardianship form when their child will be staying with a relative or trusted friend. These sample forms are freely available online.

Free legal documents are particularly valuable when they are also accompanied by legal guidelines on how to complete them.

Even though the law recognizes oral agreements, it always makes sense to get it in writing to avoid arguments over what exactly was agreed upon. Using sample legal documents to compile your own contracts is not any different to lawyers using their existing templates for standard agreements.

Of course there are several instances where you must consult with a lawyer. Again, you may use the free legal files and free legal information available on the world wide web to do your preparation ahead and so lower the consulting period – and hours charged.
