Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.

Although I think it's unlikely that your clients would believe that you provide any legal services, including legal advice, you can use a disclaimer along the following lines:

"NAME OF COMPANY is not a law firm. None of the services that NAME OF COMPANY provides are legal services and none of the information provided by NAME OF COMPANY constitutes legal advice."

Yes, it would, however I suggest that you re-word it as I have done below:
