Q: Can a bank or credit union give legal advice? Is it illegal in the state of CO in any way?
I have proof that my bank gave legal advice to my ex.
First please allow me to inform you that a bank cannot give anyone legal advice; perhaps you meant to say someone working at the bank did?
If so, please know that only lawyers are allowed to give "legal" advice; however, anyone trying to distinguish between legal advice and non-legal advice will find it is very very difficult to do. I suggest you try reporting this incident to the Colorado Bar Association; ask them for the UPL Section.
