DO RULES OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT ALLOW CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEYS TO CONTACT FORMER CLIENTS WHO GET ARRESTED?
YOU DECIDE: RPC 7.3(a)(2) makes an exception to allow DUI and Criminal Defense Lawyers to contact former clients.

Comment 5 to that rule explains, "there is far less likelihood that a lawyer would engage in abusive practices against a former client, or a person with whom the lawyer has close personal or family relationship, or in situations in which the lawyer is motivated by considerations other than the lawyer's pecuniary gain."
