Free help is only a phone call away… 

Many of us thrive on our high stress legal practices.  But sometimes the pressure overwhelms us or one of our friends, and some lawyers abuse alcohol or drugs as a result of that pressure.  Most of us don’t know who we can turn to who will understand the unique challenges of fulfilling our duties as a lawyer while trying to retain control over our lives.  Surprise!  There is free help only a phone call away.   Moira Smith of Ashburn & Mason and Michael McLaughlin of Guess & Rudd, members of the Alaska Bar’s Lawyers Assistance Committee (LAC) will share with our section the valuable resources that are available at no cost to Alaska Bar Association members to help lawyers through challenging times.  This peer support can have a significant impact on a lawyer’s health and when timely engaged, can significantly aid in the protection of clients’ interest and the lawyer’s business reputation.  Having someone you can talk to confidentially at no cost is an important first step in developing a strategy for gaining control of your situation, whatever it may be.  This session qualifies for 1 ethics credit under Bar Rule 65.   1 Ethics CLE Credit. Pizza will be provided
