On March 29, 2022, Capehart Scatchard associate, Stacey R. Gorin Esq., served as the co-moderator for a remote CLE hosted by the Burlington County Bar Association’s Wellness Committee and Young Lawyers Committee. Ms. Gorin serves as a Trustee of the Burlington County Bar Association. The idea for this CLE came from the Young Lawyers Committee meeting after the sudden death of Miss USA Cheslie Kryst, who herself was also a young lawyer.
The CLE, entitled “Mental Health for Lawyers,” featured a discussion on the signs of hopelessness, depression, and suicide in the legal profession and what to do about it. Additionally, there was a discussion on employee rights in the workplace when it comes to reasonable accommodations and paid time off for dealing with mental health issues.
Ms. Gorin, an associate in the Commercial Litigation Department, earned her J.D. from Rutgers Law School in Camden, a M.A. in Professional and Business Communication from La Salle University, and a B.S. degree in Business Administration from Saint Joseph’s University. Upon law school graduation, she worked as a law clerk to the Honorable Richard J. Nocella, P.J.F.P. in Burlington County. She is admitted to practice law in New Jersey and New York.
