Cerrud fought the robo-signing fraud that was rampant during the height of the foreclosure crisis taking on banking giants. Cerrudʼs Motion for Sanctions got through to attorney general Pam Bondi, who reopened the investigation into the robo-signing fraud and determined that, indeed, Marshall Watson had breached its settlement agreement with the attorney general’s office paving the way for the record settlement two years later. All of this, Cerrud did for all the residents of the State of Florida.
