The Helping Hand of Lawyer Assistance Programs

Lawyer Assistance Program professionals understand that life’s circumstances can cause emotional stress, depression, loss of self-esteem and a feeling of being out of control. Whether related to employment, family or other personal problems, substance abuse or other health problems, help is only a phone call away. Confidential professional and peer assistance is available. All that is required to begin the assistance process is a confidential, no-obligation, toll-free telephone call to a qualified care professional at the Lawyers’ Confidential Helpline. This service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and holidays. Your Lawyer Assistance Program is available to provide guidance whether you are concerned about yourself or a colleague who appears to be in trouble and whose health and career, or both, are in jeopardy. LAP professionals can assist you in deciding how best to help either yourself or an impaired colleague before there is irreparable harm to one’s health, career, clients, the firm and family members. Call your state Lawyer Assistance Program to find out how they can help you.
