When I was denied my second appeal for disability, I had to find an attorney to represent me. When I went online, I found dozens and dozens of attorneys that specialize in disability. So I read many reviews, and I selected Nick Ortiz. Selecting Nick Ortiz's firm was one of the best choices I have ever made. Nick Ortiz's law firm has an excellent staff. Sarah (one of the staff) has over 10 years of professional experience in the legal field, and she could answer my questions and put me at ease when I called. Tory, the paralegal assigned to my claim, has over 20 years experience. She was very empathetic to my situation and did a great job calming me down and gathering the records from the nine doctors I am seeing. Tory and Sarah were always accessible and patient no matter what questions I had. Nick is a no-nonsense man. My conversation with him put my mind at ease. They also have online courses called the Disability Academy that address everything you need to know before the hearing with the ALJ (the Administrative Law Judge). The veteran staff is there to answer all of your questions and treat you with compassion. I asked Nick what he thought my chances were, and he replied, "I have looked at your case, and I am in it to win." And win, he did. I received full disability. I would highly recommend Nick Ortiz to represent you! The firm provides everything to help you prepare for your hearing.
I cannot say enough about this very knowledgeable, kind, and keen to help lawyer. He is very transparent about his strategy and ability to assist, very honest. I called for a consult and a call back was timely received. In addition, he listened thoroughly and compassionately. He took over an hour of his time on a Friday evening to give me excellent direction despite knowing I would not be able to retain him as a lawyer in my particular case. This should speak loudly to anyone considering him as a lawyer. As a nurse, I appreciate those who go the extra mile and practice the Golden Rule. Mr. Ortiz had nothing to gain from me, yet he made me feel extremely valued and regarded my struggle with absolute professionalism and dignity. You can trust you are in the best of hands with him. I am motivated to pay it forward by his kind example!!
I truly value my relationship with the Ortiz Law Firm. I cannot say enough great things about Mr. Ortiz, Alicia, and Dawn and how wonderful they are. There are no words to describe how amazing the knowledgeable their team is. Their professionalism is top notch! Your firm knew exactly what the Social Security Administration needed along with the answers and correct information. They stepped in right away and not only assured me but, made me feel comfortable. Very personable, I did not feel like I was out of place or feel like I was beneath them and most importantly they not only did they make me feel important they showed it through their actions. They made me feel at peace when I was in one of the most stressful periods of my life. The very first time I stepped into the Ortiz Law Firm to inquire about him taking my case, he dropped everything he was doing just to speak with me. Mr. Ortiz explained everything in terms I could understand, he gave me options, where, I thought I had none, and just made the whole experience as non terrifying as possible. The entire team makes you feel confident that everything will happen in the very best interest of you in your case. He was not only well prepared and informed the day of my hearing, we met numerous times weeks prior going over everything regarding my case. Even after one of the meetings I did not show up for because I was not only afraid but, my anxiety was through the roof Mr. Ortiz stayed after hours to meet with me. Mr. Ortiz was a great help in reducing my extremely high anxiety level down not only before my hearing but, also during and after it was over.The entire team is extremely easy to communicate with and very accessible. Alicia or Dawn always answered the phone when I called. When I left messages after hours, weekends, or on holidays they return all calls to me promptly first thing in the morning when they returned to the office. Even on numerous occasions when I never returned paperwork sent to me by their office or their phone calls, they stood by my side no matter what never once gave up on me. They were extremely pleasant and professional each time I talked to them and explained in great detail what was going on with my case. Their work is detail orientated and rock solid. It was very nice to have somebody explain what to expect and what needed to be done. Everything was made so simple and straightforward. They explained step-by-step what was going on and answered any questions I had immediately. They also helped me with any of the paperwork I didn't understand. Their excellence is unparalleled. I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for me. You were so gracious, kind, and understanding. I know the reason my case was one was because of all your hard work. Mr. Ortiz, Alicia, and Dawn are amazing people. I just wanted you to know how extremely grateful I am for the three of you and how much I really appreciate all of your hard work and help. I would want the Ortiz Law Firm on my side any day! If you are in need of an attorney, you cannot and I stress cannot find better people than right here. Great job! Plain and simple.
I chose Ortiz Law Firm due to its great reviews and great reputation in this area. Most attorneys will not take a case until after your initial application is denied. Not so with this firm. I wanted to make sure the process was completed properly from the start. My first call/conversation was with Nick Ortiz. He listened and asked questions to understand my condition. Very knowledgeable respectful and kind. I dealt with Tory from that point forward. She handled the filing and answered all questions timely throughout the process. She was truly awesome! My claim was approved on reconsideration, which I don't believe is very common. I am so glad I had this group of people behind me and very grateful to all! I highly recommend this Firm!
Mr. Ortiz is very knowledgeable and has worked diligently with me each and every step of my case. He is very thorough and has answered all of my questions throughout this difficult process while also coming to terms that I am disabled. Mr. Ortiz settled my case 6 months sooner than originally anticipated. His legal team is very professional and one step ahead of the process. I would highly recommend Ortiz Law Firm for your disability case especially if your case is governed by the most common ERISA rules and regulations. Mr. Ortiz is very versed in fighting large insurance companies trying to deny your benefits.
One of my best experiences. Like other reviewers I was at a loss with how to proceed with an STD disability claim that had been denied. My wife's claim had been denied mainly due to her medical provider submitting improper documentation and unwilling to fix it. Right from the start Dawn Keller at Mr. Ortiz's office returned my call and took the time to listen to our situation. We set an appointment to meet with Mr. Ortiz. Dawn emailed me questions and asked me to submit some reports and documentation so Mr. Ortiz could review our information and be prepared for the appointment. Dawn's professionalism was quite encouraging. Once at the appointment we met Nick Ortiz. Nick is a personable fella that obviously had reviewed the information before our arrival. He afforded us time to explain our situation and he provided great council. We never felt rushed, we felt welcome and left feeling much better than we had in weeks. We are already putting Nick's recommendations to work and hoping that we will not require further legal services, but if we do I can assure you we won't look elsewhere. Do your self a favor if you have disability legal needs and call Mr. Ortiz office, Nick is a straight shooter you'll find to be a valued asset.
Ortiz Law Firm is the ABSOLUTE BEST!!! Although the disability process is a long process, the Ortiz Law Firm was always there to help guide me along the way. While understanding that I am/was not their only client, they always got back to me on any issue I had. Tory Nelson was absolutely superb. Tory always returned my calls and e-mails and provided me with any information that I needed. Mr. Ortiz prepared me and represented me during my hearing. Class act all around. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
Mr. Ortiz was pleasant and compassionate towards me since my very first phone call to him. He and Suzie made sure that I understood every step along the way about my medical disability claim. They were very professional and attentive to my case and took care of everything! I definitely felt like I was represented by a compassionate and "real" person, not just some attorney who is fake. He was very kind. I feel like Mr. Ortiz is an absolute expert with the Disability system! I thank God that I found Mr. Ortiz as my disability attorney and will not hesitate to recommend him to everybody!
From the beginning to the end of the successful appeal by the Ortiz Law Firm, I was always kept in the loop and everything was explained to me along the way. From the initial conversation with a paralegal to my subsequent conversation with Mr. Ortiz, I was convinced that they were the best firm in the entire USA who could help me. And I was right. Ms. Kate Hauser, Esq. skillfully guided me through the process, accumulates information from my doctors, and presented it to the insurance company in clear and thorough letters. Nothing fell through the cracks. It’s a complicated specialty and hey really know their business. I could not be happier and I wholeheartedly recommended the Ortiz Law Firm to anyone across the USA. Everything can be done by email or fax. It doesn’t matter where you live, they can handle it well!
My only regret is that this review is about seven years overdue. I rarely write reviews and did the firm a disservice by not submitting any reviews of the great service I received from the Ortiz Law Firm back in 2013. If I recall correctly, he was the only attorney with the firm then. He and his staff were very deserving of a positive review. Today I was reminded of the EXCELLENT service received from Nick Ortiz while looking for an attorney for my VA disability claim, and decided to write the belated review that I should have at the time.
Nick succeeded in getting my Social Security Disability claim approved the first time through. I wasn't getting very far in the initial filing of my claim for SSDI benefits, just spinning my wheels trying to navigate SSA's requirements and gathering the necessary records. My physical and mental health had me really stressed out, and I was overwhelmed with just getting by day-to-day. I met with Nick O for a free consultation. He impressed me with his ability to listen and understand my issues and with his track record dealing with the SSA. He had a very pleasant personality, and was easy to talk to. He accepted my case, and handled everything involving my claim.
About four to five months later, my claim was approved! No need to file an appeal or anything else. I was/am extremely pleased with the outcome. His fee was some of the best money I ever spent. He earned every penny of it and then some!
I would definitely recommend Nick Ortiz for any of his practice areas and have done so numerous times to friends and others dealing with the SSA.
Super helpful and resourceful. From the moment I first spoke to Nick, I found him to be amazingly compassionate, focused, and perceptive. He took considerable time to carefully and systematically analyze my case, and then discuss my situation with clarity and thoughtfulness. I was completely impressed by his focus and attention to the specific details of my situation. He is extremely knowledgeable and smart and offered invaluable insights and advice. I don’t think I have ever met a lawyer who possesses such an ideal combination of brilliance, kindness, honesty, and integrity. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Nick and Sarah and Tory at Ortiz Law are THE best! They are thorough, professional, and go the extra mile for their clients! They helped me win a positive outcome after over 3 years of fighting to get my disability and at my hearing that was finally scheduled Nick was professional, knowledgeable, and not afraid to ask the government “experts” the hard questions to get the facts out! They work hard to gather all evidence/medical records, etc., to be ready to present the facts and dispute anything! They researched my conditions along with the causes and were able to explain to the hearing judge exactly why I should be awarded disability. Nick's videos on how to prepare for the hearings (and other aspects of understanding disability) were instrumental in my ability to understand and what to expect from this lengthy process and the hearings aspect. I was totally unprepared before watching them. Thank you Ortiz Law I couldn’t have gotten a fully favorable decision without your hard work, dedication, knowledge, and all the years of experience with the disability system and hearings /judges!
I am so thankful that I chose The Ortiz Law Firm to handle my Social Security Disability case. The Ortiz team is first-rate. I really did feel like I had a team supporting me. From day one Tory Nelson guided me through the entire process. She explained things in a way that made me feel confident while going through the lengthy appeal process. She was always very responsive in providing me with thorough answers to my questions. Team Ortiz has put together an extremely valuable "Disability Academy." This online learning program is broken up into hundreds of bite-size, very focused, pieces of information which helped me learn the oftentimes very technical aspects of the disability process. I was easily able to identify which of the online videos applied to my situation so I could concentrate my efforts on those. Ms. Katherine Schwartz helped me so much in preparing for the actual hearing. With what I learned in the disability academy and what I learned in preparing with Ms. Schwartz, even though I was still very nervous prior to the hearing with the judge, I can honestly say I was very prepared. I didn't experience any surprises during the hearing with the Judge. Thank you, team Ortiz!
