Short & Sweet Version: The beauty of the Net/Web is the incredible wealth of qualitative data available, at the click of a mouse. But, it’s a dual-edged sword. If the problem being researched is of a highly personal nature– be it medical, legal, or otherwise– the wise researcher uses the resources available strictly to gather information, as opposed to expert advice. Your medical history, intertwined as it is with the history of your particular family; your legal dilemma, peculiar to your specific factual situation — all demand individual attention from an expert practicing in that specific field.
Sure, Pam, you may say, you’re just trying to get your hand into my wallet! Reality check:

Attorneys and doctors worthy of the name subscribe to a host of monthly and daily periodicals, in a never-ending quest to stay on top of developments and changes in their professional fields. We know what to look for; you do not.

As regards the money angle, let me deal with that head-on. You have to eat; yet, you will find no free groceries. Likewise, when you put in an honest day’s work, you expect to be paid. Attorneys are not exceptions to these rules of economic survival.
Summarily, use what you find here intelligently– which means as an educational tool, not as a definitive resolution.
