Access Relationships

I am teaching myself table relationships and I am having some problems. I feel I need a linking table between the tables I have made but have tried several ways of using the linking table with no success thus far.

I have tree tables: Deals, Organizations, Lawyers and Links.

Each organizaion is represented by one lawyer. I can't seem to make a one-to-one and keep referential integrity.
Each organization can have many different deals with other organizations with different lawyers.

In the deals table something funny is going on in that it seems to be linked to itself and it should link to Organizations.

Any help on this would be much appreciated.
