I was a public attorney who found myself on the other side of the law due to a highly-publicized drug arrest. I spent the weekend in jail before being arraigned by a clerk who was a friend, tears rolling down her cheeks. The arrest led to a drawn-out legal battle, employment issues, and the potential of losing my attorney’s license. As part of my treatment, my counselor recommended that I get in touch with LCL.
I had heard of LCL before, but knew little of its services. I began attending the AA meetings held at the MSBA offices. LCL also provided free counseling sessions, available to my family members as well. The day I got caught was the day I stopped using. LCL was there to help me move on with my life and my career. I am now an active LCL volunteer. I assist with interventions and help other attorneys move on with their lives too.
Volunteering with LCL has been a good experience because I believe it helps me much more than those I set out to help.
