About Me

Attorney Johnny D. Drizis has been in the Tampa Bay area since 1984.  Originally from Chicago Illinois he moved to the sunshine state after graduating from Augustana College, Rock Island Illinois. Being the son of Greek immigrant parents, he learned the necessity of hard work, the determination to succeed and how to overcome adversity.  His upbringing gives him a strong sense of family values and a strong work ethic, which he carries over into his practice of law.


 


Attorney Drizis notes that is not only the owner of Divorce for Men, he is a member.  He formed The Law Office of Johnny D. Drizis and Divorce for Men after his divorce in 2001. As a divorced father of two girls, Hali Ann and Demetra Marie he understands the pain of divorce, but also understand that there is life after divorce.  Due to his divorce he was financially forced to leave his position working as Assistant State Attorney, for the Office of Bernie McCabe.  While working there he was a Lead Trial Attorney and participated in over 50 jury trials. 


 


Upon leaving the State Attorney’s office he was on the Pasco County Felony Court Appointed list where he defended all types of criminal cases. He is a member of the Florida Bar, U.S. Federal District Court, Middle District, Clearwater Bar Association, West Pasco Bar Association, and Past President of the Pinellas County Trial Lawyers. 


 


This personal and legal experience allows attorney Drizis to better understand his client’s wants and needs.
