Does my attorney need to review my contract before I sign it?

Updated March 13, 2023.

Generally, it is not necessary for your attorney to review the contract before you sign it, AS LONG AS the contract is subject to your attorney’s approval. If the contract is subject to attorney approval, this gives your attorney the opportunity to review the contract discuss it with you, and make certain changes or modifications as may be appropriate to properly reflect your agreement. However, if the contract is not subject to attorney approval, you should NOT sign the agreement until your attorney has had the opportunity to review it with you.
