If I want to start an online editing business, how can I create legal documents to protect my clients and myself?

I want a confidentiality agreement to assure my clients that I will not share their texts with anyone. I also want some type of contract in which my clients verify that they are not intentionally plagiarizing the work of others.

The best way to protect yourself and your potential clients as to the new business venture that you are embarking on is for you to consult with a business attorney as to various issues particular to the business, the drafting up of the documents you want, and perhaps incorporationg or forming a limited liability company. I suggest that it is best to do your own due diligence before you start the venture and be safe as opposed sorry.
