The Lawyer Assistance Program, A Confidential Service

Lawyer Assistance Program

The Lawyer Assistance Program (LAP) is a confidential service provided by the State Bar to help its members with life's difficulties. In order to help meet the needs of its members and ensure confidentiality, the Bar contracts the services of CorpCare Associates, Inc., Employee Assistance Program, a Georgia-headquartered national counseling agency.

The LAP provides a broad range of helping services to members seeking assistance with depression, stress, alcohol/drug abuse, family problems, workplace conflicts, psychological and other issues. You can contact the LAP by calling 800-327-9631, or by emailing Lisa Hardy, vice president, CorpCare Associates, Inc., at lisa@corpcareeap.com.

Calling the LAP Hotline

Here is what happens when you call the LAP Hotline at 800-327-9631:

  1. Your call will be answered 24/7 by a trained counselor who will ask for your information, but you are not required to provide it. Any information you do provide is kept strictly confidential.
  2. You will then be able to explain your need to the counselor, who will then refer you to professional counselors in an area convenient for you. If you call after hours, you will receive a call back within 24 hours with referrals.
  3. If you decide that you aren’t connecting as well as you’d like with your counselor, you can call the LAP Hotline again and be referred to another professional. The goal is for you to find someone with whom you feel comfortable.
