Johnny was exactly what I needed for my very difficult family law case. He was fair honest and with he right amount of aggressive approach needed to get the job done. First off Johnny fights for whats best for kids. He felt what I wanted was best and fought for and won the outcome I desired. I would definitely hire Johnny again for any legal help needed. Only though his guidance and experience was I able to make it through my difficult battle.

He's handled multiple things for me, from taking care of a case where someone was suing me, to some minor court cases. I was more than satisfied with the results in every case. He is easy to get a hold, and returns calls, and messages promptly, something I wasn't used to from an attorney. I would highly recommend him.

When my wife told me she wanted a divorce after 30 years together, I was stunned. Then she said she didn't want to use lawyers because they'd get in the way. Then, 5 months later, she told me she'd hired a lawyer and I had twenty days to respond. When I told her I'd hired Mr. Drizis, she complained that I'd hired a horrible lawyer with horrible reputation. SHE COULDN'T HAVE BEEN MORE WRONG!!!
On our first meeting Mr. Drizis said he saw no reason for us to get divorced and that he recommended counseling, prayer and romance to heal the marriage. This is not what I expected from a '...horrible lawyer...' that is '...in the business of separating distraught people from their money...'. Mr. Drizis cares about families and is one of the most open people I've ever met.
He's helped me through very tough decisions and always with an eye on what was right, not how we could take advantage of my ex-wife. For example, I wanted to start taking alimony the first day of the first month after the divorce was final but he pointed out that since I was presently living in the marital home, it would not be right to expect payment until I had moved to my own place. I hadn't looked at it that way but he was fair to BOTH parties, which in turn, made me realize his moral compass is pointed straight North!
As further proof of my lawyer's competence and honesty, my ex-wife changed her tune about Mr. Drizis telling me that '...your lawyer costs less and does more than my lawyer.' She was also very unhappy with her lawyer's office help and their '...antiquated, paper pushing, non-digital-age methods.'. The Johnny Drizis staff, Lisa and Dianna, made everything clear to me, were very efficient, always kept in touch, sent me the forms and filings through electronic media, and made it much easier for me deal with a painful situation.
I cannot recommend Mr. Drizis more highly than this...although his sign says Divorce For Men, Johnny is looking out for the welfare of families that find themselves in dire, emotional straights. He cares about his clients, he cares about their families and he cares that he helps both parties make the right and moral decisions to bring their marriage to the least painful end possible.
Thank you Mr. Drizis and God Bless you.

I have known and worked with Johnny for about six years. He is a staunch advocate for his clients. He knows the law and knows how to make his clients feel comfortable during stressful situations. Johnny clearly feels comfortable in a courtroom. He is an excellent attorney.
