IBA: Attorneys Helping Attorneys HEAL

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Helping attorney is what legal professionals do every day. When a member of the Bar is in need to due a personal crisis like a health issue how do we respond? This is an issue the Indianapolis Bar has been mulling for awhile, and now we believe we have an answer – HEAL (Helping Enrich Attorneys’ Lives).

Created to field inquiries and respond, HEAL would reach out to members of the Indianapolis Bar who have been identified. Volunteers would communicate with the member to determine how the Bar could help (cards, emails, dinner, etc.) and ultimately organize assistance.

“What is needed now are volunteers,” said Julie Armstrong, Indianapolis Bar Executive Director. “Anyone interested in participating in this effort should email This will also be address where we will be taking inquiries for those in possible need.”

An organization meeting will be held in early August.•

  5. It was all that kept us from tyranny. So sad that so few among the elite cared enough to guard the sacred trust. Nobody has a more sacred obligation to obey the law than those who make the law. Sophocles No man is above the law and no man is below it; nor do we ask any man's permission when we ask him to obey it. Obedience to the law is demanded as a right; not asked as a favor. Theodore Roosevelt That was the ideal ... here is the Hoosier reality: The King can do no wrong. Legal maxim From the Latin 'Rex non potest peccare'. When the President does it, that means that it is not illegal. Richard Nixon
