Felhaber Larson is proud to join a number of law firms around the country in taking the American Bar Association (ABA) Well-Being Pledge.
The ABA Well-Being Pledge & Campaign was developed by the ABA Working Group to Advance Well-Being in the Legal Profession. It is designed to support lawyer well-being and address the profession’s troubling rates of alcohol and other substance-use disorders, as well as mental health issues.
The campaign’s goals are to raise awareness, facilitate a reduction in the incidence of problematic substance-use and mental health distress and improve lawyer well-being. From education to policies to culture, the seven-point pledge identified in the Campaign reflects the core areas on which legal employers should focus and the concrete steps they should take as they seek to achieve those goals.
Recognizing that high levels of problematic substance use and mental health distress present a significant challenge for the legal profession, and acknowledging that more can and should be done to improve the health and well-being of lawyers, we the attorneys of Felhaber Larson, P.A. hereby pledge our support for this innovative campaign and will work to adopt and prioritize its seven-point framework for building a better future.

Felhaber Larson is excited to join in this commitment to the health and wellness of our lawyers and the legal profession on the whole.
