Stinson Morrison Hecker Lays Off 30 Staffers
Kansas City’s Stinson Morrison Hecker let 30 people go on Monday.
No attorneys were affected.
“We were going to do this over a period of time, but we decided that with the economy the way it is, there was no reason to prolong it,” said managing partner Mark Foster.
Foster said those laid off included secretaries, record clerks and people responsible for billing and collections. The layoffs were spread out among the firm’s offices in Kansas City, Overland Park, St. Louis, Wichita and Phoenix.
Stinson, which has no plans for further layoffs, is the fourth largest firm based in Kansas City with about 340 attorneys.
