Lawyer Assistance Program (LAP)

Even though our offices are closed during this time, the Lawyer Assistance Program is still here helping lawyers, judges and law students who are struggling with anxiety, depression, substance use issues, or other personal difficulties that are making life hard to manage. Evaluations, referrals, peer support, and informational resources can be found by calling 800.255.0569. The helpline is open and is checked throughout the day. Calls are returned within 24 hours. The LAP Director, Stacey Whiteley, can be reached by email at or by calling or texting 518.360.2352. All communications are confidential.
