Sounds like the perfect advice for the lawyer who wants to do his own engineering.

I asked my accountant once whether a small practice like mine actually needed an accountant. He told me it was up to me, but that he felt that when someone needs engineering he should find an engineer. I've never regretted retaining a real accountant, and if I ever have legal issues I'll find a lawyer, not an insurance agent.
