I just started a multimedia business that will provide photography, videography, graphic design, and web design services. As one talented individual, I can provide all these services, but my knowledge as far as laws and all forms and legal documents I have to provide for my customers to protect myself and them, and to eliminate any possible misunderstandings. I would like to find a lawyer who can provide help for a price we decide on. Beside a package of all documents I might need, I am hoping we can work together in the future as far as legal advice.
Unfortunately, we really can't address this here as it will require an actual conversation about the substance of your work, etc.
I suggest that you consult with a lawyer in private and discuss your objectives in more detail. You can start by calling around to several for a free phone consultation, get some insights then pick the best fit to work with.

We are not allowed to directly solicit work on this forum. What you are requesting can easily be done, and probably at a reasonable flat fee. You should consult with attorneys in private to discuss the specifics you need for your business. Here's a link to a post with a short checklist for starting your business. https://www.robertgschrader.com/10-startup-business-questions-checklist-answered/ Other posts address website agreements, taxes, etc. In addition you would want contracts for clients that specifically address your IP rights and when they transfer or if granting a limited license, to ensure you are paid for your work. These are just a few of the issues you should address. Also, before you start, you should look at the best option for your business entity.

About $4.19. Tad Crawford's book with legal forms for photographers is a great resourse while you are searching for a North Dakota-admitted lawyer to answert qustions about ND state law. Good luck!

I like Mr. Victoroff's answer. Buy the book and get informed. Always best to have an attorney to review contracts for you (even if copied from the book) to insure you are protected and to ask general questions. Find a local attorney you enjoy working with, build a relationship with them, and lessen your costs when justified. (e.g. reviewing a contract is often cheaper than drafting one.)
Peace be with you, and may love guide you.
