Do attorneys give legal advice to mediation clients?

I do not give legal advice as a mediator because I am not an advocate for either of the parties. However, I can tell the parties generally what would happen in specific circumstances such as that a pension is subject to equitable distribution and I can also explain how the pension is divided.
