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

Self education is important, whether it be legal or any other topic. However, a client should not rely on legal advice they read about on the internet. Often times, the information is incorrect. Laws differ state to state, municipality to municipality, etc... Additionally, laws change everyday with legislative actions and with court interpretations. never rely on legal advice you read online.

How frequently does your firm use mediation, arbitration, or collaborative law to resolve cases?
