Here is a quote from judge NEWMAN in a 2007 appeals case [Energizer] 07-1197, CAFC
"The complexities of patent claim writing are notorious. There are few, if any, legal documents more difficult to craft, more fraught with pitfalls than patent applications; and patent claims are so universally challenging to the non-specialist, that this court has converted the judicial need to understand them into an unruly cottage industry called "claim construction." "
With this degree of complexity, doing it yourself of with legalzoom is legal suicide.  Go big and do it right or go home.  DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME.
