Less than 10 minutes after the tragic murder-suicide that rocked the Atlanta legal community on Friday afternoon, Philip J. Marzetti, the managing partner of the local office of Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker, received an e-mail from his office administrator.

It was an e-mail that sent him hurrying to a crime scene outside the building where one of his employees, legal secretary Raven Buckley, 25, lay dead, shot to death by a man police say she had dated. That man, Jermaine Acevedo, 30, was the employee of a temporary agency who’d been working in the Paul Hastings’ records center since January. After shooting Buckley, he turned the gun on himself.
