Molly began her work with FLA in September 2017 in the newly and much needed role of outreach coordinator, but transitioned into the assistant director position in October 2017 when Judy Rushlow took over her new post as FLA Director. Molly graduated from Loyola University Chicago School of Law in 2001. She is a member of both the Illinois and Florida bars. She worked as a civil rights litigation attorney at the Protection and Advocacy agencies in Illinois and Florida representing individuals with disabilities in matters related to employment discrimination, community integration, special education and abuse and neglect in institutions. Molly is a former client of FLA and has first-hand knowledge of being an attorney in recovery. Molly is also an accomplished equestrian and rides her beloved Clifford frequently. Molly divides her time between working with new clients and the multitude of professionals and facilitators necessary for a client’s successful recovery and spearheading the newly created outreach program. In her outreach capacity, Molly travels the state of Florida making presentations to law schools, bar associations, mental health seminars, law firms and other legal organizations.
Judy Rushlow and Molly Paris discuss the Florida Lawyers Assistance Inc. (FLA) and how this could be a good resource for attorneys with mental health or substance abuse problems.
