Yes, consider hiring someone who has setup DR/HA before to guide you through the process.

Do you have any HA/DR experience?

Like many subjects there's no magic solution and you have to figure out what works best for your organisation vs the cost and complexity.
DR and HA are different subjects anyway.
At the most simple level failover clustering and log shipping work well - I've usually found the sql server ( database ) solution is the simpliest part of finding a DR/HA solution for a whole application.
Handling data feeds, web sites, application tiers, web services, reporting, exports, logins, users, AD etc. are usually more of a challenge.
Oh and usually the "how much?" when you provide suggested solutions!

Colin is correct. HA and DR are two totally different animals. It is my opinion that you should first discuss with management and business units to determine their acceptable amount of data loss and time-to-restore parameters, and all others that are associated. Normally, these would then determine the HA and DR course that should be chosen. Can't create a plan until you know what you are trying to achieve, as different tools in the toolbelt are used for different requirements.

Just my 2 cents....
