Congratulations Barbara Mardigian, VJLAP’s New Clinical Director

Congratulations Barbara Mardigian, VJLAP’s New Clinical Director

As the seasons change, so do the roles of our VJLAP members within our organization as well as within the community.

Jim Leffler, after over 15 years with Lawyers Helping Lawyers, turned VJLAP, is retiring effective November 1, 2022. While we are grateful for his many years of service, we are also firmly committed to honoring his request that there be no farewell or similar celebration.

Barbara Mardigian will succeed Jim in the position of Clinical Director, having served the three previous years as VJLAP’s Deputy Clinical Director and decades before that working in the field of addiction.

We wish Jim well as he enters this next phase of his life and we welcome Barbara with every confidence in her ability to lead our clinical team.


As we continue to operationalize the full Lighthouse Strategic Plan, we are still accepting applications for the following positions:
