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.

Mr. Drizis managed my case extremely well. Always kept me current throughout the whole process. His staff was always available to answer questions as such was Mr. Drizis. What was explained in consultation is what happened. Thank You Johnny Drizis.

From the first time I met Johnny he was straight up and straight to the point. His professionalism is exceptional and court room etiquette was perfect. Needless to say I would recommend him strongly......

Johnny was a understanding, compassionate, and a straight shooter. Personally, for me I needed an attorney who would be frank, honest, and direct. Johnny was all these qualities and more, always offering words of encouragement and pearls of wisdom. Which at this point, a year post divorce, most have come true. To those guys looking for a divorce attorney, it gets better and I hope this helps you in your search.

Unlike other Attorneys that I have hired in the past, it was evident Mr Drizis was concerned for me as a person and that I was not just another client. Mr Drizis provided me with exceptional service and negotiated the best possible scenario for my situation. Mr Drizis kept in contact with me throughout the whole process and followed through to the end. If you don't want to feel like just another number and are looking for a quality professional, then Attorney Johnny Drizis is the man for you.

Dealing with legal issues can be extremely difficult without the representation of the right legal counsel. Attorney Johnny Drizis is an exceptional lawyer who is professional, experienced and ethical. Attorney Drizis spends time with his clients and exerts an enormous amount of effort into each case. He is compassionate, understanding, and patient as he cares about his clients and their children as well. His office is in a convenient location which is pleasant and welcoming. Attorney Drizis’ paralegals and legal team are wonderful, polite, and professional; they return calls and emails in a timely manner and they are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. I would recommend Attorney Johnny Drizis to anyone who is in need of family law legal representation.

When I first met with Johnny one of the first things he said was - "I can fight for you and do my best to win for you, but if you don't make yourself a better man and a better father, then we all lose."
Johnny is an aggressive fighter, but more importantly is the other side of him that wants to see you become a better person. He recommends reading 2 or 3 self help books/articles before taking you on as a client. I didn't understand - I wanted to fight. but after pausing and doing what he suggested - I learned a better way to look at my situation, a better way to act and ultimately got the outcome I was hoping for.
It is nice to have someone on your side that cares for you.

I met Johnny reeling after an unforeseen, unwanted request for divorce from my wife of 15 years. I needed lawful counsel, but I also needed a professional to “meet me” in my chastening. My faith in Christ was all that was keeping to me together then, and Johnny’s like-minded and compassionate counsel were nothing short of a God-send.
I was led to Johnny's office through prayer and a unique invitation from his website; his site was one that clearly catered to men, but more importantly to me, honored love of Jesus. During my first visit to his office, he started by probing on how I might still be able to save my marriage. He even offered resources on reconciliation! What kind of family lawyer does this? I would say now, “An exceptional one!"
Once we determined that my wife as not interested in saving the marriage, Johnny shifted gears toward my interests. With that said, he was always keen on my intent - where was my heart in this? He was candid that if my interests were selfish or not in the best of my three minor children, he would walk away from my case. What uncommon valor in an industry rich with greed and conceit!
As a husband of a stay-at-home wife of 15 years, my primary concern was fair and ample time with my children that I adore. Florida law would make this an uphill battle. And despite the pain of rejection and abandonment, it was important to me that my wife was treated generously, fairly, and with dignity. Johnny delivered on all these and then some. I now enjoy 10+ days a month with my kids, and my assets were split / alimony set in a way that allowed my wife to successfully transition into the workforce while still allowing me to retain a manageable income.
Johnny served me as his client with tenacity, candor, and professionalism; he loved me as a brother in Christ with compassion, humility, and grace. He enjoys not only my unqualified professional endorsement, but my unabridged gratitude.
My greatest endorsement of Johnny is that I consider him not only my attorney, but my friend! Bravo Zulu, brother!

Johnny was always available while handling my divorce case. He did so with compassion and integrity. He fully explains the many choices his client's will have to make, so each decision is an informed decision. This type of honesty and forthright communication was a blessing. He genuinely cared about my case and it showed in his work product, which was excellent. I highly recommend Mr Drizis to anyone who wants excellent advice and service from a respected and honest Attorney.
