Hello, I’m Gary Lesser, president of The Florida Bar.

As lawyers, it’s common to experience stressful situations at work and to be challenged with work-life balance issues.

I suspect we all feel overwhelmed from time to time.

I want to make sure you know about a wonderful benefit The Florida Bar provides the Florida Lawyers Helpline.

This benefit is available 24/7 to all Florida lawyers and registered paralegals.

Each member receives up to five counseling sessions a year for free. I want to personally assure you that your call to the helpline is 100% confidential and answered by trained counselors from Corp Care, an outside provider. The Florida Bar does not know anything about who calls, what is discussed, or anything of that nature.

These calls are confidential and have proven to be helpful for those making the call to speak with the counselor.

The helpline also provides a free session with a financial consultant and referrals to a variety of work-life resources such as career coaching, child care, and elder care services.

Please make your health and well-being a priority.

Completely confidential support is just one phone call away. Take advantage of this unique benefit from The Florida Bar.

The law can be a stressful profession and we are glad to offer these free resources which can be very helpful to Florida lawyers and registered paralegals.

Call the Florida Lawyers Helpline and share this video with your colleagues who may also benefit from free counseling and other services. Thanks.
