The Passing of Founding Partner Michael W. Laughlin

We are tremendously saddened to announce the passing of LFLM founding partner, Michael William Laughlin. Mike was surrounded by his loving family when he passed away on June 17.

In addition to being a pillar of the legal community, Mike will forever be remembered with the highest regard as a family man, friend, partner, mentor, coach and competitor to many people. He will be greatly missed every day.

A funeral mass will be held on Friday, June 23 at 12:30 p.m. at St. Isabella’s Church (One Trinity Way, San Rafael, CA 94903), after which there will be a celebration of life to be held at Stonetree Golf Club (9 Stonetree Ln, Novato, CA 94945) from 2-6 p.m.

The family has suggested that in lieu of flowers, please consider donations to the Timothy Murphy School in San Rafael, CA.

Oh, here’s to other meetings,
And merry greetings then;
And here’s to those we’ve drunk with,
But never can again.
Leaving Indelible Imprints
I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death.
They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make.
Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories.
We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love.
