I hired Mockler for a divorce. At one of the hearings he "forgot' to bring my case file to court. As a result I am ordered to pay $2,000.00 which I would not have had to pay.

After I paid him in advance a total of 9,500.00 up front he stops returning phone calls or letters

He refuses to give me a bill after repeated written requests.

I was making about 60 K a year. was married 3.5 years she brought nothing to the marriage. First she was given alimony of over 2,000.00 a month, this left me with 700.00 to pay bills and raise my daughter from another marriage. He would never file or do anything to get this changed.

The wives attorney sends a written agreement to me thru Mockler asking I file our last tax return jointly and she was to get 2,000 and me the rest. Mockler told to I should comply. The check for over 4,000 comes in Mocklers office sends it to her attorney for her to sign. Instead her attorney keeps the check. Mockler refused to get a court appearance ref to this, her attorney however does and requests the judge to find me in contempt for not signing and giving the check to her. Over and over I call his office trying to find out what is going on. He NEVER returns my calls, I hand delivered him one letter, mailed him another and sent the third registered mail. All are ignored but the last one while he never answered any of the questions he sent me a hand written letter saying he was insulted I sent him a registered letter and threatened to quit my case.

I tried half a dozen attorneys but no one would take the case because of the state it was in saying to report Mockler to the Florida Bar.

When the judge gave out a notice that it looked like I needed to pay her $127,000 as apart of my retirement. Once again no objections from Mockler.

This divorce cost me over $200,000 dollars all with not a word of protest from the person who took the money and refused to object anything, return calls, explain to me what was going on answer or give an itemized bill or any bill for that matter.

And legal malpractice, I can not find an attorney they all say the recover has to be over 300,000 dollars for them to even review the case.

To whom it may concern,                                                                         
                                            I have known Mr. Mockler for almost eight years now.  I hired Mr. Mockler for my divorce and in my opinion he did an outstanding job representing me.  And please understand I am a guy and for a guy to win custody of his son your Attorney must know what hes doing.  This is why I hired Mr. Mockler he has been in family law now for 38 years.  I think he knows what hes doing I have recommended friends to go to him as well and none have been disappointed.  If youre looking for an excellent family law attorney then Mr. Mockler is your man.  If anything was to ever come up again I would call Mr. Mockler in a heartbeat.  Give him a try you will not be disappointed.
                                                                                   Your friend, M

" Attorney Who Cares "

AUTHOR: mark - (United States of America)

Dewey Mockler  Mockler Law Fort Myers, Florida
 
In reference to Dewey Mockler.  I cant say enough good things about this man.  I had a divorce from hell and went on for several years and Mr. Mockler stood by my side all the way through the divorce.  And at times when I was down and out he offered words of wisdom that would help me.  There was times I was financially strapped but he continued on my word that I would make it right. I found him to be a wonderful friend and a very good attorney When the opposite side found me in contempt of court by their rules and I was sure I was going to jail that day thanks to Mr. Mockler I not only did not go to jail but by the end of court the other side was caught in their trap.  Thank you Mr. Mockler.  You know I would always think to myself this comment.    What a idea a attorney who cares  Mr. Mockler never let me down and if it was not for him I would not have my son I owe everything to this man.  And now I stand by his side as his friend.  I would stand up for him any day.  And I very highly recommend him.  Just remember he may not be the cheapest attorney in town but remember you get what you pay for.
                                                            Your friend.  Mark
