Fifth Judicial District of Pennsylvania
Due to COVID-19 pandemic, and for protection of those incarcerated, Attorney visits at the Allegheny County Jail have been temporarily suspended. Attorneys may meet and confer with their clients by telephone.
In order to guarantee the confidentiality of these attorney/client phone calls and to ensure that they are not monitored or recorded, the jail has created a “Legal Privacy Request Form.” To obtain the form, please send an e-mail to PrivacyRequest@alleghenycourts.us along with a copy of your Bar Association Card that will verify your identity as an attorney. Attorneys should fill out the form and email it to the jail as per the instructions to ensure that their calls are not recorded.
Attorneys can call the numbers on the Legal Private Request Form with any questions regarding this process.
