When I first contacted LCL, I thought I was alone in suffering from alcoholism. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to stop drinking. It was sometime later that I was ready to begin a treatment program. About halfway through my stay, I began to feel alone and fearful again.
The prospect of revealing the lies and secrets during my heavy drinking to my clients was more than I could face. I feared my own recovery was in jeopardy. Thankfully, an LCL attorney drove to meet with me in treatment. This was life-changing. He indicated to me that he understood. He understood the mistakes and lies. He understood the fear. He understood what he could do to help. It was reassuring to know that someone on the outside understood my situation and the professional issues that awaited me.
Completing treatment meant putting family and work on hold. LCL allowed me the opportunity to focus on treatment. My law firm partners had not been supportive, and in this regard, LCL offered tremendous reassurance and assistance when I needed it most. When I completed primary treatment, LCL was waiting for me and proved invaluable in assisting me with this transition. That was five and a half years ago.
LCL has helped me admit my mistakes, take responsibility for my actions and sobriety and find success with my recovery and career. LCL has become an integral partner in my continuing sobriety. In many ways, I owe them my life in recovery, which is better than I could have ever expected. I think it is invaluable to have LCL lawyers available to meet with us as we are going through treatment and struggling with personal and professional issues.
