"Your talk was excellent It hit exactly the right note and I can tell you it was very well received. The work that LawCare does is absolutely vital and the profession as a whole benefits - not just the individuals who contact you."
"You really helped a lot with your advice and just by being there to listen to me. You have no idea how much that meant to me."
"It was such a relief to see your website. For the first time I feel there is someone out there who will understand what I feel."
"Our conversation was instrumental in me taking action to improve the situation. Thank you for your measured words and kind approach."
"You are the first person who has really listened to me. I am so glad I phoned. I should have phoned months ago."
"You have been absolutely brilliant. I now feel I have a future."
"I feel much better for having spoken to you. It has taken a weight off my mind, and just talking things through has reduced my stress."
"I want to say a genuine thank you to LawCare. You are doing a fabulous job. I was in tears when I rang the other day and you listened and helped me sort it out."
"You really helped me when I was being bullied and did not know where to turn. You made me feel sane again, as I was beginning to wonder if the way I was being treated was normal."
" I am so glad I rang you and had someone who understands the work of solicitors to talk to, as I could not express my problems to anyone else at the office at this vulnerable time."
"This has been one of the most difficult years of my life. I got through it thanks to the support, warmth and understanding of LawCare. Thanks for everything."
" I am a legal professional, I contacted your helpline this weekend and I was absolutely blown away by how much your adviser helped me. My partner could not understand the anxiety I was feeling but your adviser understood immediately, having been a legal professional."
"A huge thank you for yesterday’s presentation. It was extremely well received and has had a really positive consequence – some key and very senior members of the firm and partnership have responded to it by posting about their own experiences on our intranet. The discussion includes first-hand accounts of stress, anxiety and depression. From my perspective, this kind of open conversation is really important. The message that this sends to the rest of the firm is so valuable."
"Many people have mentioned to me how helpful you and the team have been. You do such an amazing job and I know you make a huge difference. I will happily continue to support and recommend you all whenever and whenever I can."
"Thank you very much for taking my call yesterday and for calming me down - I was feeling very bad and you helped me. Law Care has already made me feel less alone.""I cannot express my gratitude enough at Lawcare's wonderful support and assistance. Many many thanks."
"One of LawCare's peer supporters helped me earlier in the year and I am now back on track thanks to her. I am doing well and billing and pressure has come away from me. I am also not drinking, she was amazing. Thank you so much, keep up the good work, you saved me!"
"A huge thank you for your presentation at the training on Friday. It was very well received and everyone found it extremely valuable – even more so given the current times. I’m very grateful for the time and effort you put in."
"LawCare has been wonderfully supportive, not only during the initial phase of the SRA's investigation, but its staff also reached out to me since the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal's decision was published. It is a charity that is close to my heart and it provides such amazing support to lawyers, which is of paramount importance now, more than ever."
“I called LawCare when I was on furlough and feeling very isolated from work and anxious about my future. I’d picked up a leaflet on LawCare from a conference and one day when I was feeling low I picked up the phone to give them a try. Someone answered within three rings and really helped me by listening to me, offering me a different perspective on things and making suggestions. Their experience and knowledge of the legal profession was invaluable and over the 45 minute call I started to feel much happier and calmer, it really gave me a lift.”
“I called LawCare when I was feeling particularly burned out. I had trained at one firm and then moved on qualification to practice in my chosen field and my new firm didn’t really have any formal support or supervision in place. Within my first few months, I was attending calls with clients alone when I had only just qualified and I was working all hours under the sun just to keep on top of my workload. I was terrified of making mistakes for fear of being shouted at and I was terrified of being struck off. Having worked so hard to qualify, I felt stuck and panicked as I wasn’t sure what else I could do. I was also upset that I felt unable to cope when others in my team seemed to be managing and management didn’t seem to care. Speaking to LawCare helped me realise that I was working in a really difficult environment and it was okay to want to quit. I now no longer work in law which is a shame but I am much happier with the job I have now.”
"I was at rock bottom yesterday. Your words of comfort, cheer, and hope plus the determination to prioritise matters where I can positively do something has had such a great effect."
