It simplifies the reviewer's work to be able to contact the lawyer and receive clarifications regarding the application. It is NOT worth it for them to contact the applicant directly. The lawyer speaks their language, both literally and figuratively. The lawyer can supply the additional documentation requested for an application that would otherwise get rejected.
2018 update: Because of the high volume of applications, it can sometimes take years to respond to the application. To solve this problem, the Ministerio de Justicia signed an agreement (applicable in 2018) to allow immigration lawyers to submit applications and other requests via software. This reduces the application's processing time considerably, but this software is only available to lawyers.
