The number of lawyers taking advantage of the State Bar of Georgia’s free counseling service has jumped significantly in 2019 compared with the past two years.

Through June, 205 lawyers had called the confidential helpline offered by the bar’s Lawyer Assistance Program, according to a bar spokeswoman. At this rate, 410 lawyers this year could access the service, which includes counselors available 24/7 by phone, up to six prepaid clinical sessions per calendar year and a program for assistance with such issues as child care, elder care and finances.
