John Terrezza is a criminal defense attorney and the managing attorney of Terrezza Law. Born in Pensacola, Florida, Terrezza is happy to have returned home to proudly represent individuals in his home town.
Terrezza is a graduate of the University of Florida. There he earned his Bachelors of Arts degree in Environmental Science. Following graduation, he enrolled at Florida State University College of Law.
As a law student Terrezza worked as a certified legal intern with the Florida Department of Community Affairs. He also served as the Articles and Notes Editor for the Journal of Land Use and Environmental Law.
In 2009 Terrezza graduated from the Florida State University College of Law with a Juris Doctorate and a Certificate in Land Use and Environmental Law. Following graduation he worked as a part-time law clerk at the criminal defense firm, the Law Offices of Lloyd Vipperman, Jr.
Because of Terrezza’s hard work and dedication, he was quickly promoted to a full-time associate attorney. For five years, he represented all types of people in criminal proceedings—from those who could not afford to hire their own attorney to millionaires accused of committing white collar crime.
As managing attorney at Terrezza Law, John Terrezza now devotes 100% of his own law practice to criminal defense and appeals. He zealously represents his clients and holds the prosecution to its burden of proving the charge(s) against his clients beyond and to the exclusion of a reasonable doubt. He believes strongly that it is better that one hundred guilty persons escape than one innocent suffer.
