Is it possible to find a good "renaissance man/jack of all trades" Legal adviser for my real-world questions/grown-up decision making?

I'm out living on my own in the world now and have frequent questions pop into my life. Given whatever topic/situation I'm takling in the future, I'd love to get the applicable parts of the letter of the law explained to me from a professional, *accurate* source, as well as some common options that this adviser has seen people choose before while remaining independent. This person would provide me with all of the legal choices I could make, and then let me know how (s)he's seen each one play out (without influencing me).
I'd love to find a single person/professional/jack of all trades who would provide me with these independent answers (Lawyer?) instead of a gaggle of advisers who try to push their respective company's products on me as their answers (i.e., Financial Advisor pushing his 401k at me when I ask a general retirement savings question). My questions are mainly in the following areas:
-Finance (savings, budgeting general expenditures)
-Real Estate (home owning, investment property)
-Insurance (educated guess as to what services the health care insurance company will pay for, what auto insurance coverage will I *need* given my personal history and what can I do without (i.e., rental car coverage since I never rent/can take public trans if my car dies))
These are questions I would have asked my Dad in the past (and gotten a fairly *accurate* answer), but now I want the same kind of "renaissance man" insight, except i want fact based answers (and the opinion of someone who has seen multiple clients face these same decisions before).
Does this exists?
