A Message to Nonresident Wisconsin Lawyers: WisLAP is Available to Help
With the number of recent disasters and shared tragedies, please remember that WisLAP, the Wisconsin Lawyers Assistance Program, offers free, confidential support to State Bar of Wisconsin members, their staff, and families.
To the members of the State Bar of Wisconsin Nonresident Lawyers Division,
In the wake of the recent event in Las Vegas, our thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and families of the victims of this tragedy and to the people of Las Vegas.
With the number of recent disasters and shared tragedies, many of us are feeling sadness, fear, uncertainty, and a sense of helplessness and vulnerability. These emotions, combined with the normal stress of everyday life and work, can leave us feeling overwhelmed.
During these times, please remember that WisLAP, the Wisconsin Lawyers Assistance Program, is available to help. WisLAP offers free, confidential support to State Bar of Wisconsin members, their staff, and families.
This assistance is available wherever you live or practice. If you, or a member of your staff or family, are struggling to process all that has happened recently, we encourage you to call the WisLAP hotline at (800) 543-2625. WisLAP team members are specially trained to listen and provide emotional support and guidance. It’s available 24 hours a day.
Like many, we’re struggling to understand how and why these events happen, but want to remind you that free and confidential help is available to you and your loved ones during these stressful times.
David Werwie, NRLD President
Paul Swanson, State Bar of Wisconsin President
Larry Martin, State Bar of Wisconsin Executive Director
The Challenge is $25,000–You Can Help Meet that Goal!
If you’ve never donated to the Wisconsin Law Foundation, or if your support has waned in the past few years, now is the time to get involved or reconnect because your donation will be DOUBLED.
Through a generous matching pledge, EVERY donation this year from individuals who have not contributed to the Foundation since 7/1/2018 will be matched, dollar for dollar, to a total of up to $25,000!
