How/where can I get a lawyer to go over a business contract for a joint venture? I have never experienced this before.

Asked over 1 year ago - Houston, TX

Hi, I am a web designer and knowledgeable with internet marketing, etc. I recently agreed to be a partner on a business venture (software firm) with a substantial percentage of the business given to me in exchange for my expertise. Now, while I am knowledgeable, I do not have the funds to hire an analyst or a specialized attorney to help me go over the agreement that I have yet to sign. So I am asking you, lawyers of the Houston area if there is a place where I can get some pro bono help with going over this contract. If you'd like to help we can barter. Like I said, I am a good web designer and in exchange I can create the best website you have ever seen (responsive design and everything, a1k to 2k value). I"m 25 and have never dealt with something like this before, so I need help.

Additional information

And hey, if multiple lawyers can give me some input and help me go over this agreement that would be awesome! I would appreciate all the help I can get. I wouldn't mind making you all awesome websites.
