Prisons searching mail from lawyers

Setting:  Contemporary, Virginia, maximum security prison.
Searched Google w/ "searching mail in prison lawyers" "searching legal documents mail in prison"

I know that legal correspondence is protected and not subject to being searched by prison censors.  My question is whether mail that's not from the prisoner's lawyer/law firm of record may be searched.  Basically, a prisoner got a questionable piece of mail, and it was allowed through because it was from a lawyer, but not HER lawyer.  Is that something that can be restricted?

Any insight would be great, thanks!
