Question by rondoggnuts: Why do some people on here insist that ONLY a lawyer can give sound legal advice?
Is there a certain threshold that dictates what can or can’t be answered by non-attorneys? To me, that notion is absurd. However, with clarification I may very well begin to understand…
For now, I’m totally befuddled, which started upon hearing that my last question, posed here, *requires* an attorney, that it’s essentially impossible to find helpful answers to my question, here.
If you care, look at my last question, even though I expect that many will back the answerer without hesitation. In such a case, please tell me exactly how I’m wrong?
I don’t deny that I’m ignorant, unintelligent, or whatever insults that can be thrown my way. I merely asked my last question, in hopes that someone was familiar enough to properly answer, but I was only met with a sense of rebuke (from 1 answer total). Next, I was hit with the claim that Y!A is NOT the place to ask for legal advice.
If this is true, should I completely disregard the dozens of answers I got previously? Doing so would not change much, WRT the law, at least. But in the future, I find that such an “analysis” would be an abomination to the legal process.
To be fair, I can never consider anyone’s interpretation of the law to be 100% accurate, with attorneys being the only exception (implied by the answer in my last post), but also since we all know they are *never* wrong, ever.
Further, if the last answer is true, I’d feel compelled to contact an attorney for ALL legal matters. But this is purely hypothetical, since I (and my family) can barely afford the fees as is. I don’t mean to be fallacious (slippery slope, e.g., here). Further, some will say I’m wrong, but I ask that you kindly explain specifically how this is so? Finally, is the answer to my last question the best I can hope for on here? That reliable legal advice simply can’t be had in this forum? If so, please explain the threshold that dictates this?

Uh, maybe because they went through years of college to learn about the law, and are actually currently working in the law? Or would you ask people with no medical experience how to do surgery? There is a reason those professionals are there
