Can I Call My Spouse’s Lawyer If Mine Is Unavailable?

I need to discuss certain aspects of my case. Can I call my spouse's lawyer if mine is out of town?

It is unethical for your spouses attorney to have a direct conversation with you even if your attorney is out of town. If you initiate contact with your spouses attorney he or she should advise you that they cannot provide you legal advice or discuss the issues of the case with you and redirect you to your own attorney's office.
