The Maryland Lawyer Assistance Program
“The Lawyer Assistance Program gave me a life worth living… once I understood it was truly a confidential group and that I was able to be honest- that honesty put me on a road to recovery and gave me a life filled with love, happiness and joy– I chased those 3 emotions in endless bottles; and instead found them in LAP” Anonymous
“As the managing partner of a large firm, the Lawyer Assistance Program helped me handle a very difficult situation.” Anonymous
