Question: Can your child's counselor be allowed to be in contact with one of the parents lawyers.? Answer: An attorney can be in contact with any person who is a potential witness. You are not correct in thinking that the lawyer may not contact the counselor. There are limits to what the counselor can disclose, both in and out of the Courtroom, but there is no prohibition against an attorney contacting the counselor. In fact, the attorney should interview the counselor.
