The attorney can give advice, and can even represent a party if he/she applies to be admitted "pro hac vice". If the attorney is not familiar with the particular laws of the state, or has not researched the law, he/she should make this point clear to the clients.


However, it is not uncommon for attorneys to practice in several states.
