It seems like there are a lot of sources for law information on the Internet. How do I know which one to trust?

Most Internet sites offering legal information are trustworthy from the standpoint that most will offer you general legal advice and assistance. Most also make the disclaimer that should the issue needing resolution go beyond what is displayed on their site, it is best to contact a qualified and reputable attorney specializing in the field you need.

Not all situations are alike and neither is the law in all states. There are many legal libraries on university campuses across the nation that can assist with legal research on topics as well. It is always a good rule to “check out” your source of information by doing a little research on the source as well.

Know whom it is that you're receiving advice from. Local bar associations are a great tool in finding a trusted and competent attorney from which to seek legal information as well. As with anything, know whom you're seeking advice from and make sure that the advice given applies completely with your situation before following it. In the long run, you'll be glad that you did.
