 State Bar Presidents

Letters from the State Bar Presidents have generally fallen into two categories. 1. Annoying Drivel (praising their pals etc) and 2. Outright Condescension- Ya know the guy making big 6 figures spending the year at Presidential Suites and getting fat on our dues, and who would get lost in an actual courthouse, kicking us to do more “pro bono” or telling us how to practice. My choices are to annoyedly delete or actually read them and get really angry.

Allan DuBois recent letter is a pleasant suprise. You know about TLAP where lawyers can be referred to treatment or help without grievances or punishment but there is also is the Sheeran-Crowley Trust to pay for up to $8000 of treatment expenses. Remember lawyers are 2-3 times more likely than the general public to attempt suicide, and sadly when we do attempt it, we are way more successful. That attorney who acts rude , or forgets to answer correspondence, might be going through some serious issues and could use our help. It could be you or me.
