Disciplined in Sophisticated Defense and Insurance Litigation

An Associate at Butler, Samir Maasarani practices in our Coverage Defense and Extra-Contractual Claims departments.  Samir has been a member of the Florida Bar since 2009 and is based in our Tampa office.  He is also admitted to the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida.

Before joining Butler, Samir served as an Assistant State Attorney for the 13th Judicial Circuit for nearly two years.  During his time there, he tried numerous cases to guilty verdict. 

Prior to prosecuting, Samir spent four years at Clark & Washington, L.L.C. as debtor’s rights counsel practicing in the Middle District of Florida Bankruptcy Court.  There, he successfully litigated the fair resolution of over one thousand personal bankruptcy filings.  Before that, Samir worked for two years as a foreclosure attorney, where he gained valuable courtroom experience practicing in the majority of counties in Florida.

As a result of his bankruptcy experience, Samir began teaching as an Adjunct Professor at Stetson University College of Law.  At Stetson, Samir helped develop the curriculum for its Bankruptcy Clinic, a course offering students real world experience, while still benefitting from traditional classroom guidance.
