The surprising cost of working freelance
Getting contracts written
Before signing a contract, Kanarek gets professional legal help to ensure that her freelance contracts protect her and her clients.
If you want to save money on legal advice, Goodman recommends using legal clinics at law schools. They're reasonably priced and sometimes free, she says. You're only allowed to make use of these services four times per year.
But you should hire a lawyer who works with freelancers regularly to look over uniform contracts you'll be using regularly, says Goodman.
