By definition, a consultant provides advise for a fee. An alarm consultant for instance might provide advise on installing an alarm system. But, he would not install the alarm system.
A contractor provides a service or performs a specific piece of work for a fee. An "Independent contractor" controls the means and method of doing the work.
You also have to be careful how you structure your relationship with a contract employee. The more control you exercise over the when, where and how they do their job; the closer you come to being their employer.
You also don`t need and attorney. I have used a paralegal in the past for a lot of my legal issues.
Micro Soft and Google (Google Docs) have web sites where you can down load a variety of offices forms. You might start your search for a form there. Another place to go is a local paralegal service. You tell them what you want and they can draft the form for you.
Hope this helps.

The older we get, the more excuses we make for not chasing after our dreams. But truth is, goals are attainable at any age.
