It is called coaching the witness. It is also called - this is what happens when people try to represent themselves against an attorney. There is no ethical law it violates. It is merely a courtroom objection that must be made at the time it happens with a request that the court order the attorney to stop doing it. If you did not make the objection and obtain the direction from the bench, it is already too late.
