The answer to your case is "generally no." However, there are circumstances that can create exceptions to the general rule. You really should sit down and spend some amount of time with an attorney and talk about this question. Many attorneys will give you a 'free' 1/2 consultation but you can often 'buy' an hour of consultation time from an attorney where you are not hiring the attorney to represent you but you are having the attorney 'educate' you about a particular topic. This topic is one that is not simple and one of which it would be worth your while to converse with an attorney in some depth.

Hope this helps.
