Lawyers give info cards to defendants outside courtroom to protest judge's arraignment procedure

Lawyers give info cards to defendants outside courtroom to protest judge's arraignment procedure.  I'm not sure I agree with the judge or the lawyers.  While I appreciate the spirt of what the lawyers are doing, their methods create possible ethical issues.  Are they giving legal advice via these cards?  Have they formed an attorney client relationship?  Arguably the answer is yes to both of these questions.
