About The Other Bar Oregon

The Other Bar, Oregon is an anonymous fellowship of recovered lawyers, judges and law students who operate in the form of a non-profit corporation to provide confidential assistance to members of the legal community who suffer from alcoholism and/or drug addiction.

These recovered lawyers pass on the support they received while recovering from alcoholism and/or addiction and practicing law and facing the consequences of their addiction conduct including disciplinary proceedings, SLAC monitoring and last chance employment agreements.

Many recovered lawyers have come back from seemingly hopeless situations to continue practicing law and to preserve or regain what is most important to them in their lives.

The Mission of The Other Bar is to perpetuate the unity and fellowship of recovered lawyers, judges and law students and to facilitate the sharing of 12 Step recovery through Lawyers Helping Lawyers Groups.

The Other Bar, Oregon is not affiliated with the Oregon State Bar, the PLF or the Oregon Attorney Assistance Program.
