Marshall Watson law office cutting staff, focusing on compliance

The Law Offices of Marshall C. Watson, a Florida-based foreclosure law firm that paid $2 million to settle an attorney general investigation into the firm’s operational processes earlier this year, is laying off staff members and hiring new employees for its compliance division.

“To streamline our processes and minimize inefficiencies, the firm has had to eliminate temporary and overlapping positions,” according to a spokesperson for the firm. “We are, however, adding positions to our compliance department as part of our continuing commitment to providing quality service to our clients.”

Marshall Watson would not elaborate on how many positions were cut from the firm’s payroll. However, sources put the number somewhere around 20 to 30 positions.
