The Brooklyn Bar Association maintains a Lawyers Helping Lawyers committee in order to support the well-being of members of the Brooklyn legal community. If you would like support or get more information about the committee, please reach out to committee chairs:



The New York State Bar Association in collaboration with other county bars has a more expansive Lawyer Assistance Program offering confidential services and peer support online and on the phone. If you or a loved one are suffering from a mental health, alcohol or substance use problem, it is essential to get support.
