I would give a negative number of stars if possible. This attorney claims to work aggressively on behalf of men's rights. In reality he does the exact opposite. My ex wife was very pleased with his representation. He collected his retainer and handed me off to a very weak junior attorney who personally destroyed my divorce case from day one in court. That attorney is still in his firm. He did nothing to manage my case or his firm or prosecute my case and actually bring it to trial. He allowed my abusive now ex-wife to walk all over him and his entire firm without offering anything resembling professional representation. He secured no evidence even when it dropped in his lap thanks to my drunk, violent ex. When my ex flagrantly violated court orders written to constrain her drinking and driving and behavior with my child, he still did nothing. When my ex wife was removed from the home by the Cape Coral police he did not secure any evidence or move my divorce to trial. Instead of prosecuting my case as I expected, he very intentionally dragged it out by using local doctors he has referral deals with to perform Parental Coordination and Evaluations in the hope of using these doctors in court. He needs the help from those doctors because he has no clue how to successfully prosecute a case on his own from what I now know. His firm refused to stop that behavior even when I demanded them to stop. My divorce was so mishandled that it took three years and bankrupted me. I finally had to fire him and his junior attorney and finish the divorce myself otherwise I would still be waiting for him to set a trial date and end my divorce. I wasted roughly $30k on this stupidity and would have fared much, much better in court if I never met him at all. I still have to take my ex back to court now after four years because of the original mishandling of my divorce by Sam Assini and his Men's Rights firm. If you a man looking for representation, do not believe his advertising as I did. I am embarrassed to admit I hired an attorney off a bus bench. Do your research and find a reputable family law attorney in Fort Myers and don't make my mistake of hiring this person or anyone in his firm.
