About the OAAP
The Oregon Attorney Assistance Program (OAAP) provides CONFIDENTIAL and free counseling assistance to lawyers, judges, and law students. We can help with your concerns about your well-being, or the well-being of someone you care about. We offer short-term individual counseling, referral to other resources when appropriate, support groups, workshops, CLEs, and educational programs.
Each OAAP attorney counselor is both a lawyer and a counselor. Our experiences as practicing lawyers give us a strong foundation for understanding the situations that you face. Our training and experience as counselors provide us with the ability to listen and help you navigate toward solutions.

Oregon Lawyers Conference Room
The OAAP, in collaboration with the Professional Liability Fund, is offering Oregon lawyers free use of a conference room in downtown Portland. This space can be reserved through our online calendar system. Once you reserve the space, you will receive a confirmation email and a reminder email with more detail. Please do not exceed your scheduled time! This protects your client’s confidentiality and is a professional courtesy to the next user. We are pleased to make this room available to Oregon lawyers and hope that you make use of it in your practice.
The Oregon Lawyer Assistance Foundation (OLAF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency that has been formed to provide financial need-based grants and loans to Oregon lawyers to defray some or all of the expense of treatment for alcoholism, chemical dependency, mental health issues, or other impairment. OLAF assists lawyers who access the Oregon Attorney Assistance Program (OAAP) and who are unable to pay for the treatment they need. (Treatment is outside the scope of services offered by the OAAP.) Lawyers who need OLAF’s financial assistance can apply for a loan or grant through the Oregon Attorney Assistance Program.
Your donations to OLAF make a difference in the lives of Oregon lawyers who are suffering with an illness they cannot afford to treat.

Throughout the retreat we will enjoy plenty of relaxation, wonderful food, and free time to explore the gardens, enjoy a massage, swim, or soak in the hot tub. As always, we will be applying for CLE credits and anticipate engaging and informative speakers.
