Meet Destin Florida Attorney John F. Greene

First and foremost, I am a trial lawyer. I have an extensive experience in the courtroom and have a comprehensive understanding of trial procedure, the rules of evidence and effective advocacy.

My law firm in Destin is devoted to representing individuals throughout Florida, protecting their rights and addressing their legal concerns. Over the past 39 years, I have built a solid reputation for effectively representing clients in criminal defense, personal injury, bankruptcy and family law matters. I have represented clients in more than 100 jury trials. I also accept select cases in Louisiana.

Choosing the right criminal defense attorney can be a daunting task. Contact me to schedule an appointment to talk through your case and how I can help you.
