In general you do not need your Attorney to review the written offer, but you can certainly run it by your Attorney at any time. I would never tell a client, "NO, you should not review that docment with your Attorney," when the client is making the biggest financial decision of his or her life. Your team of Professionals---including your Attorney---are there to provide information and feedback so that you can make the best decision for YOU.
A good real estate attorney seeks to do two things in a purchase transaction:
1. Protect her client. This includes a review and revision of the contract of sale to remove any harmful language/requirements. Also a review of the title report to verify there are no obstructions to you, the Purchaser, receiving a good "clean" title at closing. Lastly, a thorough review and explanation of the closing documents.
2. Help the Purchaser accomplish the goal of homeownership. A good real estate attorney understands that buying a home is a happy time: someone's dream is about to come true! Thus, the adversarial nature of the contract transaction gets toned down to a matter of reasonable conversations betwen the Purchaser's and Seller's attorneys. This isn't a lawsuit or divorce case, so the good real estate attorney has to tone down the rhetoric and find reasonable compromises---while still protecting his client---so that the goal of the contract is achieved: a home purchase.
Hope that helps!

A written offer is not binding here, only a contract signed by the seller which is why you need a local experienced real estate attorney on call so that you can move quickly to secure the property and iron out the details of the contract and the whole process from contract to closing.
