BEAUMONT – The Mostyn Law Firm will shut down its offices in Beaumont and Austin, according to a Facebook post by Amber Mostyn, the widow of the firm’s founder, Steve Mostyn.
Steve Mostyn, who was reportedly struggling with a mental health issue, committed suicide in November.
The announcement that Mostyn Law is downsizing came only days before Christmas on Dec. 19.
“To move ahead, we need to downsize to a fiscally manageable firm,” Amber Mostyn wrote in her post.
“That means some individuals are being informed that their positions have been eliminated. This decision was not an easy one, especially at the holidays, but it is consistent with efforts to marshal our resources, reach our goals and extend our reach.”
The post states the Beaumont and Austin offices “will be closed to increase efficiency” and the firm will “recommit” to its base office in Houston.
The Record reached out to Mostyn Law attorney Mark Sparks, who operates out of the Beaumont office, for comment but did not wish to comment at this time.
Amber Mostyn’s post states the firm is “reorganizing other parts of the practice” because of “thousands” of successful settlements in its transvaginal mesh, hailstorm and Superstorm Sandy cases.
“Thanks to the work of Steve and all of our staff, settlements with all seven mesh manufacturers will be processed over the next year and half,” the post states.
“We also have settled virtually all of the Sandy claims. Mostyn Law has resolved thousands of hailstorm cases. We should be proud of the work that got us to this point, and even as we head into a new phase, the firm will be prepared to expand to take on similar issues.”
