Don't understand what you mean by the Rikers Island Judicial System. Are you facing a parole violation? The short answer is you should be able to hire an attorney and bring them with you to the facility. Attorneys in good standing are allowed to go to Rikers Island.

if you mean a violation filed for prison rules, there is no counsel for those proceedings.
If you mean a parole hearing, which can be held at Riker's, the attorney can go to that.
