The practice of law shall be defined as any service rendered, regardless of whether compensation is received therefor, involving legal knowledge or legal advice. It shall include representation, provision of counsel, advocacy, whether in or out of court, rendered with respect to the rights, duties, regulations, liabilities, or business relations of one requiring the legal services. It shall encompass all public and private positions in which the attorney may be called upon to examine the law or pass upon the legal effect of any act, document, or law. Inactive attorneys may not, at any time, or in any manner, hold themselves out as lawyers to the general public. Nonetheless, it shall not be considered the practice of law for attorneys to represent themselves or family members to the third degree of consanguinity.
