Lisa M. Johnstone
Back in June, we wrote about Lisa M. Johnstone, a corporate associate in the Los Angeles office of Skadden who passed away in her home. The autopsy is out now. While the cause of death is inconclusive, the toxicology report found no trace of drugs….
In this sobering post about an associate’s death, we encourage lawyers to assess their lives, as well as their mental and physical well being. If as a result of this tragic death somebody else out there can find a moment to recalibrate his or her life, that can be a good thing.
