Choosing between two different answers of two Muftis

Q: What should a person do if he gets 2 different answers from different scholars of the same Hanafi fiqh? Will there be an issue if he ignores one?

A: He should prefer the one who he feels has a better understanding of deen and that which is closer to taqwa.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
