Good morning. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.

Here is a link to a warranty deed form you can use as a template: is not required that it be prepared by an attorney, but it is robably not a bad idea if you are not sure how to complete the deed and the conveyance.
If you need assistance finding local counsel try Martindale Hubble (site rules prohibit us from referring specific attorneys) . Many attorneys themselves use this site to locate attorneys outside their jurisdiction or expertise: is a huge worldwide database searchable by location and specialty.  The attorneys are all peer rated.  So, they represent the top of the profession.

There is no set fee for an attorney to do the closing for you. You can negotiate a flat fee upfront. I imagine the fee would range from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand, depending on if you used a sole-practitioner with a storefront office or a partner from a large downtown firm.
