Well, the thing about doing it yourself is that if you make a mistake or an assumption, it could cost you.
Sadly, its a common conceit that lawyers and their services cost too much, but with legal matters such as contracts they are the experts.--and they can tailor things to your specific needs.
The thing is though, that drawing up a contract can be done on your own--any agreement signed by both parties can be considered to be legally binding, BUT legal advice can bring to your attention all kinds of things that you might have overlooked, and that are worth putting into the agreement. A lawyer may charge less for just advising than they will for preparing such documents for you.
The rule of thumb I have learned is that if you have any
doubts on this sort of stuff, consult a lawyer.
