I offer a free, limited consultation, however, if the client goes forward I charge for the time spent initially.

I started my career with a mentor that practiced in the fields of law that I have chosen. He taught me how to practice and showed me the interesting aspects of our chosen fields.
The more clients know about their endeavors the better. An educated client makes the tasks of the attorney easier to understand and implement.
I will generally review documents prepared by clients unless it is obvious that an attorney prepared document will meet their needs better.
It depends on what is meant by "represent themselves." In negotiations the client may be fully capable of self representation, however, I would not coach clients wishing to litigate for themselves except in small claims matter.
