Legal Advice, as opposed to legal information, is what lawyers provide to clients. This generally involves advising the client about the client’s particular matter, or recommending or advising the client to take a certain action. Legal information can be said to be giving information that is a legal fact, such as the legal age of when a person ceases to be a minor.
