Boss of bosses. Some people say they are experts and some people are actually experts. Mr. Ortiz is the real deal and so generous it is hard to believe. I had a question that I consulted with people around the country about. Nobody could answer the question. Mr. Ortiz emailed me the case law confirming his answer. Gave it all away and said he could help me in the future if I needed. What can you say about the kindness of a person like that? If you looking for an attorney in this field you have found the right person and firm. Heidi who answered the phone well represents the excellence of Mr. Ortiz. Thank you so much for your help, I am so grateful. If you looking for an attorney in this field you have found the right person. 24K Gold
Ortiz Law Firm is absolutely amazing. Nick Ortiz and Tory Nelson are compassionate, supportive and understanding. Both Nick and Tory continue to be there for my family in so many ways. Tory is absolutely perfect in guiding you throughout the entire process. Tory communicates with you every step of the way and is always there for every question you may have. She is sympathetic, patient and generous with her time. Nick Ortiz is also kind, forthcoming, and communicative while helping a family throughout the process. I thank God for the Ortiz Law Firm because of Nick Ortiz and Tory Nelson. You can expect professionalism and expertise as they are key components within Ortiz Law Firm and Nick and Tory deserve much praise. Thank you so much as you are saving my family in numerous ways! Nick Ortiz and Tory Nelson are the best!
I HIGHLY recommend Nick Ortiz and his team without hesitation. Tiffanie, who continues to help me throughout this process along with Mr. Ortiz has been absolutely exceptional. I especially appreciate her compassion, patience, and empathy towards someone (myself) who has neuro disabilities from brain cancer, in addition to a long list of diagnoses. Tiffanie has always been quick with follow up, extremely knowledgeable of the process, and helpful in getting my documentation organized and processed in a timely manner. This team is extremely knowledgeable of social security protocol, and does an outstanding job in letting you know what to expect. Nick and Tiffanie have made a process that is hard to navigate, let alone with neuro disabilities amongst other things, easy to navigate. I wholeheartedly trust this team. They have given me peace of mind and hope in their exceptional work and care in my case. I cannot recommend Nick’s team and Tiffanie enough! Tiffanie is an absolute blessing. Thank you so much, Nick and Tiffanie!
Mr. Ortiz and Tiffanie were absolutely fantastic! The communication was perfect and they are some of the most pleasant people I have talked to. I didnt even feel like I was talking to lawyers or paralegals because that's how great they are at their jobs and at just being good people! I never thought I had a chance to win my SSI/DIS case, but they got me prepared and WE WON!! Thank you guys so much from the bottom of my heart!
We won!!! Ortiz Law Firm help me win my SSA and my employer disability case. Tiffanie Turner is awesome, she was my point of contact! She truly is concerned and attentive to my LTD case. She's always very polite and professional. She explained things in ways that made me feel confident while going through the lengthy appeal process. She's always very responsive in providing me with thorough answers to my questions in a timely matter. I would highly recommend the Ortiz Disability Law Firm.
First of all, I want to thank God almighty for guiding me to Ortiz law firm. There is no doubt that Mr. Ortiz is an extremely competent, compassionate and successful individual with tons of testimonies attesting to this. Well, today I will add my name to that list since I was just awarded a full and favorable decision by SSA. I was awarded disability at the reconsideration phase and as such, I never got the chance to meet Mr. Ortiz since we didn’t get to go to hearing. There is one very special person I have to mention here and that person is Ms. Tiffanie N. Turner. She is the paralegal that was assigned to my case. She was also heaven sent. There are not enough adjectives for me to begin to describe her, but I will try a few. She is knowledgeable, passionate, thoughtful and extremely efficient at everything she does. There was not one e-mail or phone call that I made to her, that she did not return on the SAME DAY! This is unheard of in today’s world; let alone a law firm. Ms. Turner is without a doubt, an intricate part of the success of this firm.
If I could give The Ortiz Law Firm 6 stars I would. TORY WAS AWESOME!!!!! If it wasn't for Tory I would have given up a long time ago.. Thank You Tory for your continued encouragement throughout the process.... It Definitely was not easy, but it was well worth it in the end. Mr. Ortiz and Tory were awesome to work with. They kept me well informed and my phone calls and texts were always answered in a timely manner. The Disability Academy was also very helpful as well it answered a lot my questions. If you are looking for a Law Firm to handle your disability claim, look no further than the Ortiz Law Firm... They are the Best!!!!!!!!!!
After becoming unable to work due to significant medical issues, I felt that I needed to attempt to gain SSDI benefits. The process seemed rigorous and laden with pitfalls, so I chose to enlist the help of an experienced attorney to guide me through the process. After an exhaustive web search, I found the Ortiz Law Firm. The sheer amount of helpful information this firm provides on their web page was key to contacting them. Mr. Ortiz has spent a great deal of effort in organizing a comprehensive list of topics, as well as providing a "Academy" to assist his clients. Even though I live in Oregon and Ortiz Law is based in Florida, they gladly took on my case.
I chose to have Ortiz Law submit the initial application on my behalf to the Social Security Administration in the interests of not making a mistake that would delay or prevent a positive outcome. They readily did this, and then continually followed up with me with questionnaires, status updates, and advice as needed.
I would like to recognize "Tory", a Senior Paralegal, who was assigned my case. Tory's professional attitude and genuine interest in my case was apparent throughout our interaction, and she is an exemplary resource for Ortiz clients. Her caring demeanor is evident in everything she does.
Recently, my claim was approved by the Social Security Administration and I will start receiving monthly benefits shortly. Yes, the attorney fee comes out of the retro back pay allowed by SSA rules. Could I have done this all myself and avoided the attorney fee? Possibly. But I felt that hiring an experienced law firm to help avoid those potential pitfalls was well worth that cost. After all, they have the experience and possible clout with the SSA that most of us do not.
I highly recommend this firm.
I hired Mr. Ortiz to help get my Disability. I have No Regrets. He got me Approved for my Disability. Special thanks to Tiffanie, who took the time to assist me with so much. She returned all my calls and really made me feel that I was in Good hands. She really went Above and Beyond to help me with so much. Her Care and Concern for the Clients is Excellent. I would Recommend Mr. Ortiz to Any and Everyone. You’ll be So Glad you did. Thanks to Everyone at the Nick Ortiz Law Firm!
I hired Nick back in February 2022 and do not have any regrets. While it took me going to the ALJ hearing to win my SSDI claim, it was worth it to have him and his staff every step of the way!!!
Nick Ortiz and his staff, especially Tory, have been wonderful and super helpful with this process. I highly recommend Nick Ortiz law firm to represent you for any SSA disability claims. His Disability Academy videos were super helpful and getting updates from him and his team were very satisfying, especially with having anxiety.
You will have no regrets in hiring the Ortiz Law Firm and team!!!
"Nick Ortiz was great! He helped me immensely."
"Mr. Ortiz and his office are very professional. They will give you everything you need to know about the process and what to expect. They have a video library that is detailed and informative to help. They are highly responsive. Victoria "Tory" Nelson is very helpful and will go the extra mile. The whole team was great, two thumbs up. Thank you!"
"Forget the rest, hire these pros. They get the job done for you. If you need a good disability attorney, Ortiz Law Firm is the one you call."
"My whole process was great Ms. Tory was always on the ball with any and every thing. Mr. Ortiz is a great coach. If you take notes every time you talk to him he will get you where you need to be. Thanks you both so much."
Just want say a little something about Ortiz Law Firm and Mr. Nick Ortiz. I retained the services of Ortiz Law firm in February of 2022 after my reconsideration appeal for SSDI benefits were denied. I just got a decision in my favor this month. Nick prepared me for the hearing by making sure I had ample of time to watch the short videos compiled by him to guide you understand the what/how/when process of the hearing goes and how to react and act. Then there is Miss Tory in the office that does all the paralegal stuff for Nick and she is amazing to work with. At the end of the Day I am glad that Mr. Nick was representing me at my Hearing. Ortiz Law Firm is a good establishment that is out here to get the best result possible. I highly recommend them to any one wanting to get their SSA benefits. God Bless them and once again Thank you for helping me.
I highly recommend Ortiz Law Firm, I wish I had called them from the very beginning. I will be honest and say that it can be difficult to get ahold to someone on the phone, but Tory was very responsive to my emails which I appreciate very much. She was always reassuring whenever I was feeling down. The Disability Academy is absolutely full of much needed information no matter what stage of the process you are in. I am GREATFUL!!!
"Ortiz Law Firm is the best in the business my family is very satisfied job well done thanks for your help."
It's always a difficult time when your forced to hire an attorney just to receive benefits that you are entitled to. I just want to say that Otiz law firm has done an amazing job keeping me updated on every step of the process which helped relieve some of my stress of the unknown. It was also tremendously helpful to no longer have to personally deal with the anxiety created by the constant bombardment of arguments and requests from the insurance company. Not every case is a guaranteed win, but having someone fight for my rights and argue on my behalf made it well worthwhile. I appreciate the ones willing to fight for our rights.
Ortiz Law handled the appeal with my insurance company efficiently and professionally. The paralegal in charge of my case, Tory, answered any questions I had quickly, provided guidance on addressing inquiries from the insurance company during the course of the appeal and always followed up with the insurance company in a timely manner. I highly recommend this firm!
My review is a little late due to illness. Nick Ortiz is the most honest, compassionate person I have ever dealt with along with Tory Nelson his senior paralegal. From start to finish I was treated like I really mattered. A refreshing difference from the way I was treated by my long term disability company. Within a couple of months my benefits were reinstated!! Within six weeks after that a settlement was negotiated by Mr. Ortiz for a lot more than I expected. My disability company is now permanently out of my life!!!! Thanks to Nick Ortiz, Tory Nelson and staff I sleep much easier. Nick Ortiz, Tory Nelson and staff are all my heroes.
"Nick and his team do a great job for their clients. I refer cases to his firm on a regular basis because I know he will take care of my clients."
Ortiz Law Firm did a fantastic job representing me in my case. Tiffanie was my contact person at Ortiz. She handled all the paperwork and made sure everything was filed on time. She sent reminders to me when needed and was quick to answer me if I got nervous with the process and needed reassuring. Mr. Ortiz offers a wealth of knowledge and has created a tool that walks you through the whole process, tells you what to expect, what you need to do and when. They. Do. Everything. Did I mention they request, submit, and file all of your paperwork?
"The Ortiz Law Firm is a very professional organization and made all the difference, in handling my case. I can not praise them enough!"
"The Ortiz Law Firm has been there for me from the beginning. At times it was stressful but Tory was always there for reassurance."
"Tory Nelson has been amazing! She kept me updated and we just found out we won!! I would recommend everyone I know to use Ortiz Law Firm!!"
"I honestly can’t believe how great this law firm is, Tory is absolutely amazing and will recommend to everyone I know that need helps! If I could give more than 5 stars I would, thank you all so much! Tory was amazing and there every step of the way! Thank you!"
Best attorney if you are trying to get approved for disability. His paralegal, Tory Nelson, is the best! She is on top of everything every step of the way. She always replies in a timely manner, does anything & everything she can to help, & is a super nice & pleasant person to work with. Mr. Ortiz was able to get my disability approved after two denials & two years of waiting. I am so grateful to this firm & highly recommend them to whomever is fighting to get disability.
"Mr. Ortiz and his staff are the most compassionate and helpful crew to see you through this complicated journey. Tory was a godsend for me. I highly recommend using them!!"
"The Ortiz Law Firm was curious, professional and helpful. Thanks especially to Tory Nelson for all her help. I highly recommend this law firm to get results."
"The best decision we ever made was asking Nick Ortiz and his law firm to represent us. The results were great. Diana and I are convinced no one else could have succeeded other than Nick, Dawn and the rest of Nick’s team. Thank you everyone for all the patients, guidance and help."
This firm has been a blessing for our family. They worked hard to obtain my 1600 pages of medical records and won my SSDI case. They are also working hard on my LTD claim. Tory always responds in a timely manner and has a great attitude. Mr. Ortiz is professional and easy to talk to. I can't say enough about how dedicated, informative, and motivated they are for their clients.
LOOK NO FURTHER!!!! I use Ortiz Law Firm about 2 years ago to win my case against Libery Mutual!! When Liberty Mutual decided to cut me off of my long term disability after 2 years I knew exactly who to handle my case. I knew it would be in good hands no matter what the out come of my case would be!! I'm so happy to say they won my case again!! When Mr. Ortiz calls he always listen and answer all your questions!! Thank you Mr. Ortiz!! Tory Nelson, you are very sweet person!! You so quick to respond to any of my emails. You made sure I stayed updated on my case. Thank you Tory Nelson. Mr. Ortiz I just want to say thanks to you and your whole team!!
I highly recommend Ortiz Law Firm. Tory provided exceptional customer service. She was always readily available, knowledgeable, motivating, and professional. The mini videos created and presented by Nick about the steps in the process were very easy to understand. Nick and Tory were my greatest cheerleaders throughout this long and tedious process to victory.
"All of my experiences with Mr. Ortiz have been top notch and I find him to be an expert in his field."
"Amazing people. Amazing firm. Nice people. Great customer service. Experience was phenomenal. Best firm in the nation. Great results. Fair price. People I talked with have great personalities. On a scale of 1-10 its off the charts 100. Thank you for all your assistance."
The Ortiz Law Firm helped me with my SSDI claim and won it for me. They are all so very polite and professional. They always answered my questions and helped me through every step of the process. I highly recommend them to anyone needing a Lawyer for their disability case. They even called me a year later checking up on me, telling me they are always there to help. Thank you so much Nick Ortiz and Staff!
I was turned down when I tried to put it though and got denied. I needed a lawyer a that point. I chose Mr. Ortiz. I am so happy I did! Tory took all my information, she is the best paralegal I’ve ever met. So, Mr. Ortiz had videos, that you need to watch them. It tells what questions the judge may ask you, and what answers you need. Follow those videos and you will win. Awesome experience, and I got back pay of $25000.
"Thank you Tory Nelson and Mr. Ortiz for all your help."
The Disability Academy was so helpful and I was more than happy to watch the videos that Nick prepared. A lot of lawyers would not take the time to do that, but it was amazing, and I am so glad I had access. He covered everything, but the videos that discuss how to speak to the judge, how to stay calm, and how to stick to the truth and avoid exaggerating were especially helpful. I would absolutely, 100% recommend the Disability Academy to anyone applying for Social Security Disability benefits.
"Tory Nelson and the Ortiz Law Firm are Awesome! They truly were concerned and attentive to my case. I never felt like just a case file number, but a friend. Forget the rest go with the Best, Ortiz Law Firm....they are the David for your Goliath!!!"
"This law firm is amazing. They take the time to listen to your story and make it their own. From there, they will fight for you to help you get what you deserve. An amazing law firm that cares about your dignity and well-being."
"Nick Ortiz and Tory Nelson are super awesome! They have both been helping me thru a very difficult time in my life. Tory Nelson was always the pleasant voice on the other end of the line when I felt hopeless. Very encouraging and very respectful! I would highly recommend them for all of your disability needs. They have stuck right there with me!"
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.
Tory Nelson was my primary contact with Ortiz Law Firm and she was simply awesome to work with anytime I called. She kept me informed on my case, answered my questions, or if she didn’t know, she found out!
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!
Ortiz Law Firm did an amazing job with my Long Term Disability case! I called several places and no one would take my case, but Mr. Ortiz said he could handle it no problem. I had an extensive amount of paperwork to go through and they managed it very quickly. The office staff goes above and beyond, I worked with Tory. Anytime I needed something or had a question all I had to do was email or text Tory and she was super fast at answering me back. Very professional company and I would definitely use them again!
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.
"Victoria "Tory" Nelson, Paralegal, for Katherine Schwartz, Lawyer at Ortiz Law Firm was extremely helpful in explaining everything to us and guiding us through the process. We are grateful to Tory and Katherine for their very professional handling of our case. I definitely recommend them."
Helped us with long-term disability issues from Cigna. Very helpful and very nice. Would definitely use them again.
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!
"I was very pleased with the handling of my case by the Ortiz law firm, especially with Victoria (Tory) Nelson. Tory, always kept me informed with every move they were making on my behalf with excellent results. I highly recommend the Ortiz Disability Law Firm, if you want quick and professional results on your behalf."
I love this Law Firm! Everyone, who I had personal contact with was friendly, knowledgeable, and very accommodating. Victoria (Tory), the Paralegal handling my case, was/is amazing. No matter, how many times, I contacted her, which were many, oftentimes asking her the same questions, was always very patient with me, and took the time to explain everything, in detail, as to what to expect, and when to expect it. Mr. Ortiz was/is very professional, and far exceeded, my expectations, in regards to my settlement. I highly recommend using this Law Firm, without any reservations.
5 stars aren't enough for Nick Ortiz and his team. After being in an exhausting fight for 2 years, I found this team and I cannot find words enough to express how grateful I am. Every member of the team that I had contact with was kind, helpful, and professional. Communication was top-notch every step of the way. The help in preparing for the hearing was exceptionally thorough. Getting the news that my claim had been approved brought me to tears of profound relief. My gratitude to this firm will be lifelong. I would highly recommend choosing them to help you in your claim.
"I can’t say enough good things about Mr. Ortiz and his team of professionals. They were dedicated to helping me win my Social Security Disability case. Through the entire process, they were there to answer any questions I had and made it so easy for me. I can’t thank them enough."
In my personal opinion, Mr. Ortiz and his employees did a great job. The experience was 1st class. I was lost in the middle of a fight with social security and they carried me through. I thank God for this great team of professionals. I highly recommend them.
We won my case! I was feeling anxious about my upcoming hearing, but Mr. Ortiz and his staff were very friendly and professional. I thank God for them and they explained the process thoroughly and put my mind at ease. I was always made to feel that my case was important to them, and they always replied to any questions I had in a timely manner. Thank you so much, Mr. Ortiz, and your also to your wonderful staff... Tory was my point of contact and she was so supportive and knowledgeable. Congratulations to us all!
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 wanted to say thank you to you and your staff for all of the work you did on my behalf. I never thought I’d need an attorney for a benefit that I paid for in good faith but I am fortunate to have found your firm. Thank you so much. If in the future, should I require your services (I will call you) or know of someone in need of your assistance, I will not hesitate to send them your way."
I can say with all this unnecessary stuff that going on with this world including the COVID-19 pandemic, Ortiz, Tory, and his professional staff worked through the process of winning my case. I thank God for them every day for making my life continue without any worries. They answer every question you have even if it simple. Very southern hospitality. Thank you again, guys, you are great and I will recommend anyone going through anything use the source Ortiz Law Firm and may God continue to lay hands and bless you.
I want to thank Mr. Ortiz, Tory, and the whole office, from the bottom of my heart, and my family's hearts for helping me, and sticking with me through the whole process.
"Nick fought for me and did everything he said he would. His people are top-notch and professional. They are great lawyers and Sarah Palag was great to deal with."
"I would say, anyone out there, contact Ortiz Law Firm. Make sure all of your paperwork's in order, and don't give up...keep fighting. Again, don't give up. It's worth it in the end."
"Nick represents the essence of right attitude and masterful use of attention to detail."
"Mr. Ortiz was pleasant and compassionate...I thank God that I found Mr. Ortiz as my disability attorney and will not hesitate to recommend him to everybody!"
"So impressed on how Ortiz Law Firm went to battle for me over and over again. I am blown away!"
"Kate Hauser handled my LTD appeal and got my benefits reinstated. The Ortiz team is professional, thorough, and all-around amazing. They made the whole ordeal a lot less stressful, and I’m so thankful to have found them."
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.
