Each of us responds to stress in a different way - so what is stressful for one may not be stressful for another. Practicing law can be stressful and too much stress continuing over a long period of time can be harmful to your health. When lawyers talk of stress, they talk of constant pressure, office problems, dealing with difficult clients, exhaustion and loss of control. They talk about family problems and lack of time. The lawyer assistance program offers services to help you recognize and manage your stress.  It can and does get better call us today.  All calls are confidential.

The cumulative effect of any one of the above can impact the most successful of law practices.  The Alabama Lawyer Assistance Program (ALAP) has coordinated information to assist you, or someone you know, who may be experiencing financial stress and/or job loss and/or transition.
