Can you be held responsible for giving somebody bad legal advice?
Question by Mike: Can you be held responsible for giving somebody bad legal advice?
Can you be held responsible for giving legal advice to someone and it turns out the advice you gave was illegal, hurt the person, sent them to jail, or put them ina bad financial situation? Assume these things though: the person who gave the advice never claimed to be a layer, have a degree, or certification, but did claim he knew what he was talking about. The person has no personal relationship with the person he gave the advice to. And the person who gave the advice had no intentions to harm the person they talked to in any way

No. If someone listens to bad advice from a non attorney and takes it, they get to live with it.
