Virginia JLAP Establishes Fund in Honor of George Harrison Hettrick

George H. Hettrick photoThe Virginia Judges and Lawyers Assistance Program (VJLAP) has established the George H. Hettrick Memorial Fund to raise money for programs that help lawyers struggling with depression, substance use, and other mental health concerns. 

The organization’s annual Volunteer Training Symposium has also been renamed the “George H. Hettrick VJLAP Annual Volunteer Training Symposium” in honor of the recently deceased Hunton Andrews Kurth partner.

Hettrick spent decades building Hunton’s pro bono program into one of the most innovative and impactful programs in the country while simultaneously working to help lawyers who might be struggling with substance use and mental health issues.

Hettrick's years of devotion to these causes benefited the community and had a tremendous impact on the legal profession in the Commonwealth. 

Those who are interested in donating time or money to either the symposium or the Hettrick Fund may contact Janet Van Cuyk or visit the VJLAP donation page for more information.
