I will soon be in need of professional legal assistance to research and write terms & conditions, policies, etc.

I haven’t had the need to for a lawyer up until this point and it's about time I've found one that I can turn to for advice and services when needed.

I’ve asked for referrals from my existing legal colleagues but they don’t know of anyone specializing in the Internet arena (they're all in real estate) .

Do I need a specialist? Where do you get your legal services for your Internet ventures (I'm not asking for names - I'm looking for a starting point for some research)?

I would start with Nolo the legal book provider. They have a great book for webmasters and software developers along with several templates for different situations. Once you read the book and pick a template you can add or subtract modifications based on your specific needs. At that point you can submit the documents to a lawyer for review and it will save you piles of cash since they don't have to draft the document, but simply review it.

I have done this numerous times in several different businesses with great success. Nolo is a great resource to get research and sample docs, that would be my first stop.

I have used Jeffery Cohen of Internet Litigators before. He might be able to help you out

What country are you in?

As you seem to have assumed there's only one country in the world, my guess is the good old USA...

Regarding what Andye says, there's no any kind of Internet laws but country laws applied to Internet.
