Judges occupy a unique and powerful force within the legal profession. They see attorneys in action and can quickly identify an attorney who may be impaired. As such, judges are in a position to act to promote positive change in the lives and careers of lawyers in crisis. Judges are also among the few who are positioned to help other judges who may be challenged by substance use and mental health disorders. As with lawyers, TLAP maintains a list of volunteer judges who are interested providing peer support to other judges in crisis.

TLAP also operates the ABA's National Hotline for Judges Helping Judges (800-219-6474) for jurists who are seeking help for themselves or other judges. All communications are confidential by statute.
