Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals Judge John Everett Williams, chair of the Tennessee Lawyer’s Assistance Program (TLAP), was the keynote speaker last month at the Missouri Bar Association’s Lawyers’ Assistance Program annual dinner. Williams spoke about the TLAP program and how it has become a leader among programs like it across the country. “The success of our TLAP program rests with three core principles: We have the support of our Supreme Court, we have an outstanding staff at TLAP, we have an good number of quality volunteers,” Williams said.
