G. John Dezenberg Jr. is as close to a Huntsville native as it gets, having moved to Huntsville with my family when I was 5 years old. I attended Whitesburg Elementary & Middle School and Grissom High School graduating with the Class of 1979.
G. John Dezenberg Jr. attended the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa for the last 4 years of Bear Bryant’s coaching career (National Champions my Freshman Year) obtaining a B.A. Degree in Criminal Justice with a dual minor in Psychology and Sociology. I attended the University Of Alabama School of Law from 1983-1986 obtaining my Juris Doctorate and getting licensed by the Alabama State Bar in 1986.
The last 4 months of 1986 I practiced in Fort Payne, Alabama with the Honorable Lee Clyde Traylor (later the Hon. JUDGE Lee Clyde Traylor). January 1, 1987, I took a job as an Associate Attorney with Higgs & Conchin in Huntsville where I tried numerous lawsuits and became known nationwide as a Lemon Law Litigator.
I started a solo practice January 1, 1990, concentrating in Bankruptcy, Domestic Relations and Personal Injury Cases (The Alabama Legislature statutorily did away with my Lemon Law Practice by passing a State Lemon Law that superseded the more favorable Federal Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act).
After a short stint as a Partner at Higgs, Emerson & Dezenberg in 1993-1994, I started a practice limited to Consumer Bankruptcy Law in 1994. In May of 2012, Melissa W. Larsen joined with me to form the Consumer Bankruptcy Law Firm of Dezenberg & Larsen, P.C. We are committed to providing the best representation possible to consumers facing economic issues.
I have five children, three grown (ages 26, 22, and 19 – two having graduated from the University of Alabama and the third having finished her Sophomore Year) and two “new ones” (ages 5 and 6). I am married to the former Shiela Durano Abrogar since 2005. I have one grandchild, age 1 1/2 named Cooper.
Active Law Practice leaves me little time for hobbies but I am a boxing fanatic trading fights with “fight traders” around the world. I attend all of the University of Alabama Football home games and I respect anyone who names their offspring “Saban”.
I stay current on Bankruptcy Law developments by attending the National Association Of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys Annual Conferences, having attended San Diego in 2013 and scheduled to attend New York in 2014.
