That's interesting math, but you left out an important statistic: how many times that an attorney is asked what the law is does the question end up in court? It has to be less than one in a thousand. It doesn't end up in court because substantially all lawyers agree on the answer -- even the ones who for reasons of advocacy say that they don't.
Many lawyers say "maybe" when the they believe the chance of all substantially all lawyers agreeing yes or no is less than (my guess) about 95% - way more than 50%.
