Excellent Attorney
John is a great lawyer who'd I hire again in a heartbeat. I was extremely anxious about my case when we met. However, he created a solid defense within our first consultation, due to his legal expertise, that ended up winning us the case. He was very relatable and down to earth, while remaining professional, and his staff was very responsive.

John Terrezza
I have retained 4 prominent attorneys in Pensacola to represent me for cannabis related charges over the past 20 years. Now that cannabis is legal in Florida for medical use and I have a current medical card, I was still arrested and jailed for my cannabis not being in the proper container. My last attorney told me several times that if I was arrested again for cannabis there would be nothing that he could do to help me. So there I was, just like you are doing right now, looking for a new attorney and reading reviews. I came across John Terrezza and read his reviews and called his office to schedule a consultation. Fanny, his office manager answered, asked me a few questions and put me on a brief hold. Then after a moment, John Terrezza came on the phone and asked me a few more questions and then he told me he was interested in my case. I met with him the very next day and was very impressed how smart and sharp he was with the current cannabis laws. I retained him to represent me and he was able to handle my case with all charges being dropped. I assure you, that if you need an attorney that is really for the people, an attorney that is well read and smart and sharp, well spoken and respected in the courts, you have found him. He is John Terrezza. Thank you Mr. Terrezza and Fanny.
