A: The easiest way to get an answer would be to call a local attorney's office and ask what they charge.

A: There is risk in signing a contract without having an attorney review it. How much risk depends in large part on the financial value or importance of the contract, and of course what the contract says.

Attorneys commonly charge an hourly rate to review and discuss a contract, which on average I'd say ranges from $150-$400 per hour. If you get an attorney, you can ask upfront if they have experience with the particular type of contract at issue, and ask for an estimate of the time and cost a review of your contract would involve.
