You probably do need an attorney if for nothing else to form the
non-profit. Evolt should also get into some sort of contract with regard
to its hosting etc. Having learned way too much about legal issues as of
late I am happy to review contracts and suggest changes, but I am not a
lawyer, so it is always my advice to seek legal counsel blah blah blah.
