    @goldilocks: I'm not a client of Marsal/Lyons, but my agent is part of a major firm in NYC, and my agreement was only one page. The more nitty gritty stuff comes more in contracts with pub houses. If you don't trust the agent with your business (have heard fishy things) then I wouldn't query. The lawyer stuff might have come off as being suspicious early in a relationship.

    edited to add, I swear there was a recent question answered in Janet Reid's blog and I can't find it, but if you look through the troves long enough you might find her perspective on that.
