Because it is natural to question why Bar Counsel may be investigating a particular complaint, attorneys can be frustrated by the scope of the inquiry. Bar Counsel is charged with the duty to investigate all complaints that it may receive, and Model Rule of Professional Conduct 8.1 places a duty on all attorneys to comply with the investigation. Failing to cooperate with the investigation or providing incomplete or inaccurate responses to Bar Counsel can create a host of problems for the responding lawyer which can easily be avoided.

Substance Abuse and Addiction in the Legal Profession

Program Number: 2930 Presenter: Joan Bibelhausen, JD

Studies show that lawyers are at greater risk for alcohol and other substance use disorders, depression, other mental illness and stress than members of other professions or the general population. There is a clearly recognized continuum where unresolved chronic stress becomes a predictor for addiction and mental illness. By understanding lawyer stress, this continuum, and the facts about addiction and mental illness, lawyers can reduce their risk and, hopefully, get help earlier when there is a problem. Signs, symptoms, risk factors and recovery regarding these problems will be presented. The discussion will include new initiatives and tools to reduce risk as well as information on lawyer assistance programs and other resources.
