Deaths, Small Law Firms, Solo Practitioners, Suicide

Apparent Attorney Suicide in Chicago

This is a gruesome story and sad story. The Chicago Tribune is reporting that a 78-year-old man jumped out of his office at 111 W. Washington Street….

The man, an attorney, apparently jumped out of his office at the Burnham Center, which is across the street from City Hall in Chicago. From the Tribune:

A 78-year-old attorney apparently leaped to his death this morning from his office building across the street from City Hall in the Loop, authorities said…

A witness heard glass breaking and then saw the man jump out a window about 7:40 a.m.

A picture of the Burnham Center in Chicago is below. Note: we don’t know if the man was an attorney at any of the firms in the building. There are almost a dozen solo practices and small law firms showing the Burnham Center as an address, so we shouldn’t speculate.

We’ll have more details as they become available.
