About me

Attorney John DeGirolamo was born in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania. He attended High School in the Philadelphia area before embarking on a trip to Florida, which has turned permanent. John attended the University of Tampa located just off the beautiful bay of Tampa. After graduating with a Pre-Law degree that concentrated in criminology, John attended Barry University School of Law located in Orlando, Florida.

John began his legal career during law school as a clerk for a trial practice that concentrated in medical malpractice defense. Out of law school, John was hired to the litigation department of the semi-national firm Butler & Hosch. Having spent two years at the firm, it became clear to John that he missed the criminal law that he spent his college and law school careers studying.

The law firm of Charles M. Greene, which carries a high-level practice of State and Federal criminal defense and complex commercial litigation, hired John after his two years at Butler & Hosch. Under the tutelage of the managing partner, Charles Greene, along with other colleagues at the firm and co-counsel with which the firm works very closely, John was able to learn from attorneys that are considered the best of the best in the local and statewide communities.
