The Sheeran-Crowley Memorial Trust
Often, lawyers who come to TLAP have depleted both personal and financial resources, a circumstance which presents considerable challenges to beginning treatment. The following are sources of possible financial support for Texas lawyers in crisis.
These funds are for the benefit of Texas attorneys and law students who need treatment for substance use, depression, or other mental health issues and are without means to pay for services.
We need your help to keep the Trust solvent.
I am an attorney and I want to help!
