The Lawyers Assistance Program actively recruits Peer Advisors (PAs) throughout Washington state. This network of about 50 attorneys supports lawyers on a broad range of themes from addiction and mental health topics to individual practice guidance.
Advocacy areas include:
Most PAs have attended LAP trainings on listening skills and methods for creating a supportive connection. Future offerings are being developed and planned. Of course, these PAs are attorneys and not counselors, and each person has their own style. Meetings often take place over coffee or at an attorney’s office.
