"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.
"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.
"Lawyer Nick Ortiz was thorough in his investigation of my case. He kept me up to date and worked steadfastly on my case!"
"Compassionate and professional. Nick Ortiz and the Ortiz Law Firm were amazing in helping me with my claim. The first call really gave me a glimpse into how thorough and professional my experience would be. He helped me win my case in a quicker time than expected. His team was very instrumental in the success of my claim. I am forever thankful."
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!
"I used Mr. Ortiz and this firm several years ago and have sent many people to him. His office staff is very friendly and professional as he is. I got called on a weekend, so I know he returns calls. He is a genuine, honest man."
"Great people. Honest. They will tell you the truth about your case. They tell you everything upfront so that there are no surprises."
I decided to speak with someone about my options for filing a disability claim. I had no idea where to turn or how to even make the first move, but after reading reviews for Mr. Ortiz I decided to take a chance, and it was one of the best decisions I could have made. His office staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. If they didn't have an answer they would find out and I always received a phone call the same day. Mr. Ortiz did not hesitate to call me back when I had concerns and was always very reassuring. I highly recommend Mr. Ortiz. He always kept me up to speed on my case, and I am grateful.
"Mr. Ortiz and staff were extremely friendly, professional and took care of all my needs. I am so thankful for his services."
After paying a different lawyer thousands of dollars to represent me, the case got nowhere. Nick and his team took my case for the appeals process and it played out exactly as he said it would. As the case was winding down, there were "expenses". I asked how much the expenses were and he told me a REALLY low amount. This was the exact amount due from the settlement. They are very honest and set reasonable expectations. They certainly exceeded my expectations. Ortiz Law Firm is the real deal for long-term disability cases.
"Good small town local law firm. Attentive and diligent."
"Only the greatest lawyer ever he got me a settlement."
