Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers

A nonprofit organization

$25,160 raised by 82 donors

LCL offers free, confidential peer and professional support services to the legal profession. We save careers, families and lives.

"I don't have a problem with alcohol" is often the response when we ask people if they know about Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers (LCL).  Yes, LCL provides free, confidential help to lawyers, judges, law students, staff who work with legal matters, and their families who are affected by alcohol and/or chemical use.  LCL also helps with compulsive behaviors; depression, anxiety and other mental illnesses, stress, or any problem which negatively affects the quality of one’s life at work or at home.  LCL offers up to four free counseling sessions statewide as well as appropriate referrals and follow-up, peer support, and support groups.  

LCL provides a vast menu of CLE and other educational programs on impairment and well-being topics.  Ultimately, our work is public service for lawyers, their clients, and the profession.  Your donation to LCL will support these critical services and allow us to respond to immediate needs as well as trends in the profession.  Each year, LCL helps hundreds of people and the numbers keep increasing. Some called us directly and others were referred by concerned friends, colleagues and family members.  But we measure success one legal professional or family member at a time. One lawyer told us "you saved my life by being there when I had given up hope.  The confidential, caring support I received during my crisis made a difference.” 

The growth in the number of people helped by LCL is gratifying, but the reality is that we reach only a fraction of those who need help. Traumatic events that affect our colleagues, reports of suicides in our community, and misconduct borne of mental illness and addiction show that LCL is needed as never before. LCL is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and we depend on contributions to maintain our services.  We have ambitious goals for serving the Minnesota legal community.

Please help if you can and know that your contribution will make a difference for many. See for more information or call us at 651-646-5590 or 866-525-6466.  You may mail a check to LCL at 2550 University Avenue West, #313N, St. Paul, MN 55114.  Please contact us directly if you would like to make a gift of stock.  There is help and there is hope.
