Johnny D. Drizis P.A.
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 he is not only the owner of Divorce for Men, but also a member. He formed Johnny D. Drizis P.A. and Divorce for Men after his divorce in 2001. Due to attorney Drizis’ divorce, he was financially forced to leave his position as Assistant State Attorney for the Office of Bernie McCabe, where he served as Lead Trial Attorney and participated in more than 50 jury trials.
As a divorced father of 2 girls, Hali Ann and Demetra Marie he understands the pain of divorce, but he also understands that there is life after divorce. He is remarried to Mary Beth and has added 3 more children to his life, Jen, Brandon, and Zach, forming a new blended family. This personal and legal experience allows attorney Drizis to better understand his clients’ wants and needs.
