About The Ortiz Law Firm

Mr. Ortiz opened the Ortiz Law Firm in June 2012 after working at a boutique disability and injury law firm as an associate for seven years. The firm handles only plaintiffs’ claims, most of which are disability claims – both Long Term Disability and Social Security Disability claims. The Ortiz Law Firm primarily handles claims in Florida, but does represent Long Term Disability Insurance claimants across the country. Although Mr. Ortiz always intended to remain a solo attorney, the firm’s case-load has grown so much over the past several years that he just hired an associate to join the team.
