What is the remedy if your contract lacks clarity?

A client recently presented me with a contract asking my opinion of it. He explained the parties had downloaded the document from a legal website and revised it to fit their needs. He thought it was fine, but wanted an attorney's opinion. Unfortunately, there are several problems with this scenario that are becoming all too common with the expansion of legal websites and people wanting to save a few dollars. First, the contract was inadequate in many respects and simply misstated the parties' agreement. Worse yet, it was already executed. As a result, it was now a flawed document to which he could be legally bound.
