Do you think sellers are immune to their own protection Spells?

So for instance say you paid for a protection spell done by so-and-so. Then later you somehow make so-and-so angry and they decide they want to curse or hex you. Does that protection spell you got from them suddenly not work if they're the ones attacking you...? Are their "warranties" on protection Spells that no matter who casts it it works against whatever sort of attacks it was made to defend against no matter the source? What are the morals and ethics behind these specifically?

A professional practitioner should not be turning around and cursing you in the first place. If they would do that, however, and if the spells are legit in that case it would at least come from a ruthless place of defense so could work alarmingly well even against them ultimately. Lol.

It really depends on the type of protection spell, because all of them function differently and are contingent upon different factors.

If I am casting a protective spell for someone --first off it's conducted from an objective place unless a particular focus is cited by the individual, this means I cannot interrupt it's force anymore than anybody else can. Second of all, the nature of the spell dictates which forces are actually protecting you and that may have limitations in particular scenarios irrelevant to those forces.

The best way to go when it comes to this is a.) go to practitioners you trust who are level-headed with you but serious about defense and justice, b.) make sure you have a variety of protections to cover all of your bases and possibly from more than one practitioner, including casting and setting some wards into motion yourself.

Thank you for the detailed response!
I was honestly just curious as it just came to mind one day, and as I haven't cast many spells myself yet, I wondered how that sort of thing worked from a professional point of view and what steps would be taken to prevent such things on the off chance that sort of thing was a common occurrence.
