Colleagues Need Our Help

     Our Committee assists lawyers with any mental health problem that interferes with the ability to function on a day to day basis (alcohol, drugs, anxiety, depression, senility). If necessary we will handle cases for the lawyer involved until he or she can get back on his/her feet. We also assist with counseling and closing one's practice.
     We accept anonymous referrals and our work is strictly confidential. We meet on the second Wednesday of the month. However, we can and will meet on short notice. I can't emphasize enough that once a matter is sent to Bar Counsel the ship has sailed. Too many Montgomery lawyers are sanctioned each year who could be helped if we were contacted in time. If you sense something is wrong whether it be a colleague, an associate, a lawyer on the other side of a case or someone you observe in a case in which you're not directly involved please contact us.
