We Understand Lawyers

NJLAP understands the competition, high expectations and work/life balance issues faced by New Jersey lawyers.

While good advice-givers, we lawyers are often not good advice-takers. However, by not reaching out for help, a lawyer may eventually jeopardize all that is meaningful in life.

 

Don’t delay calling while you are trying to decide whether your situation has become serious enough. There is no need to risk your license, livelihood, reputation or family. You do not have to manage alone. If you, a friend, or colleague is in trouble, seeking professional help makes a difference. Once you have made the call, you have taken the first step. The next step we will take with you.

Why You Should Consider Volunteering At All Stages of Your Law Career

According to Wikipedia, “Volunteering is generally considered an altruistic activity and is intended to promote goodness or improve human quality of life. In return, this activity can produce a feeling of self-worth and respect. There is no financial gain involved for the individual. Volunteering is also renowned for skill development, socialization, and fun.”
