Our Staff

The Virginia Judges & Lawyers Assistance Program has a team of professionals dedicated to helping lawyers, judges, law students, clerks, paralegals, other legal professionals and their families with mental health and substance use concerns.  

Whether we as a team have been through recovery ourselves or just want to encourage our peers, our goals are always to: (i) support the on-going recovery process of lawyers, judges, and other legal professionals and (ii) to educate the legal community about the devastating short-term and long-term effects of substance use and mental health issues.

Whether you call for yourself, a colleague, or a family member, our team is here to assist with supportive counseling, coping skill building, connection to treatment resources and peer supports, and support groups across the Commonwealth.
