    Can you write up contracts yourself on like Microsoft Word using your home computer? Or do you have to go through a lawyer and use carbon paper, etc etc etc?

    Most peple write them up after years of expereince, including everything they have been burned on in the past.

    Get a good attorney for a client and barter with him. That's what I did and it works out great. He has written all of my commercial contracts, filed leins on properties where we got hosed, etc.
