48-Criminal Defense Lawyers

51-Government Attorneys

A criminal defense lawyer may lease space to a Commonwealth's Attorney's office as long as the space has a separate entrance and there would be no public access to the Commonwealth's Attorney's office (because there is no chance of any sharing of confidential information as there was in LEO 1416).
