Lawyers Concerned For Lawyers Committee
The Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers Committee is our local connection to the larger state wide program and offers confidential help to lawyers, judges, and their family members.
LCL was incorporated in 1988 by recovering lawyers and judges to assist their colleagues struggling with substance abuse and addiction. Today, LCL is a comprehensive assistance program designed to meet the unique needs of lawyers, judges and their family members who are struggling not only with alcohol and drug related problems but also with stress, anxiety, depression, gambling and other emotional and mental health issues. Support is provided by our local Committee and can also be provided through the the Pennsylvania Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers
network of Volunteer lawyers and judges from around the Commonwealth, other states, Canada, and Great Britain. These Volunteers are the foundation of LCL. Many of the Volunteers have been assisting colleagues for over 30 years!
LCL has NO connection or communication with the Disciplinary Board, Judicial Conduct Board, Board of Law Examiners, or the Pennsylvania Bar Association regarding the identity of those we help.
