Do you follow a madhab?

I try to follow the Hanafi madhab as I find it best suited for life in the USA in particular in the region I live. By following a Madhab I find I can follow my de'en with a degree of guidance from my Brothers and Sisters.

Please be aware not all Muslims recognize Salafi, Wahabbi and Sufi as Madhab's. there is considerable debate over if Sufi are a sect or a madhab. At one time they were considered to be a legitimate Madhab of Sunni, but there is some question among scholars as to if they still follow Sunni. Typically Sunni only recognize Hanbali. Maliki, Hanafi and Shafi'i as being Madhabs. Most Sunni stress we are to follow one of the Madhabs and only one. It makes no difference which, but just one. Typically a person will follow the Madhab of the region they live in. although we should learn the teachings of all 4.
