A significant number of attorneys and others in the legal profession in New Jersey suffer from addictive diseases such as alcoholism, drug dependency, compulsive gambling and the like. A fortunate few turn to the New Jersey Lawyers Assistance Program for help.
While the Lawyers Assistance Program has many resources and much experience at its disposal, there are times when some form of residential treatment is needed. Unfortunately, many of its clients are without insurance or funds to obtain this treatment.
The purpose of the C. Stephen Barrett, III, Esq. Lawyers Assistance Fund, which is administered by Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers, a NJ Non-Profit Corporation, is to provide financial assistance to lawyers, and others in the legal profession, recommended to it by the Lawyers Assistance Program and other professionals. This assistance is in the form of a loan rather than an outright grant.
Proceeds from the annual LCL Reception and Awards Event are used to maintain this fund. Contributions are welcome throughout the year and can be sent to "Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers" at the address shown on this web site. LCL is designated as a 501(c)3 public charity by the Internal Revenue Service. Donations are tax deductible to the extent provided for by law.
Please note: All inquiries and communications are held in the strictest confidence.
