You gain the service of an owl familiar. It is adorned in a golden armor and attached to its wings are long banners containing the runes needed for a spell. This familiar is the preferred familiar of Azorius lawmages and is always at the side of any enforcer or writer of the law.
Judge's Familiar appears in an unoccupied space and has the statistics of an owl. It abides by the same rules as if you cast the find familiar spell. Additionally, whenever a creature casts a spell that would affect you, you can use your reaction to dismiss Judge's Familiar, and if you do, the spell fails and has no effect if it is 3rd Level or lower (as if you cast the counterspell spell). Otherwise, the spell fails and has no effect unless the caster spends one spell slot to prevent the spell from failing. If you choose to dismiss Judge's Familiar this way, it cannot reappear for 1d4 days.
The Judge's Familiar spell cannot be cast unless its caster is of a Lawful Good or Lawful Neutral alignment.
