What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

I pride myself on being an educated consumer. I often research issues, ranging from medical to financial. Before I make a substantial purchase, I carefully research the service or product to make sure I am getting the most quality for my dollar.

I understand a client's need to come to me prepared with questions and ideas of their own. I welcome, appreciate and understand those clients.
