A while back I hired an intellectual property lawyer to do a couple independent contractor related agreement documents for me, which I use to hire people to do work related to my computer game and my book. He charged about $750 for both combined, which is a good deal considering his normal hourly rate, but it is still a lot of money for someone like me who does not yet have any revenue from this.
Thus when I worked with an artist and he requested minor contract edits, I didn't go back to that lawyer for every minor edit, as I would likely end up having to pay him a lot of money again. I instead asked a friend with some business experience if he could offer a third set of eyes. Likewise, it'd cost a lot of money to have the lawyer oversee the actual signing of every contract in Docusign.
Might it be feasible to hire a para legal to help me with these minor things, or is there any other reasonable low-priced alternative? I tend to check contracts a bit excessively, which ends up being time consuming, so I'm very interested in finding a way to hire help.
A paralegal is probably your best bet. Just keep in mind that of course they're not lawyers, particularly if you get sued.
