Terry Dariotis

Terry Dariotis nearly qualifies as a Tallahassee native. Terry had received his Juris Doctor degree from Loyola University of Chicago in 1973. But, after he completed a one-year appellate court clerkship in Waukegan, Illinois, in 1974 Terry and his wife, Jeanne, moved from the Chicago area to Tallahassee to enjoy a better quality of life and to be with other family members who had moved there.
