I agree that no one should ever buy assets together. I disagree with the generalization that attorneys feast on trying to write agreements. I know two, and they are both reputable. In fact, they would not be part of our association if they were not.

Good attorneys, which may be hard to find where you are, do not feast on anything with the exception of what they swore an oath to. If you can find a good one, they should help you, at a reasonable rate, to solve your problems.

Call or contact your local Bar association. Most attorneys are required to give back to the community. They must provide, pro bono, services to those that cannot afford them. We give away many thousands of dollars of work every year, at my firm.
