We hired Ken Ortner on the recommendation of a friend. We have had bad experiences with lawyers in the past, but Ken has re-instilled my faith in the system and law. He is truly a professional and caring person. His first interest is his client, he is understanding and always there. The fact that his cases aren't just about the money speaks volumes for his professionalism. Court cases are like being dangled from the side of tall bridge, not knowing what is going to happen next. But looking down and seeing Ken as your safety net is comforting beyond words. He allows you to feel human, and not just a number. Personally I see him as a miracle worker! Thanks so much for all you have done.......you have been a blessing to this family :)
I have used Kenneth Ortner for many things in the past, ranging from numerous things. He gives his personal attention to his clients. What I appreciate most is the one on one time that he spends with each client. He doesn't ignore phone calls (as most do). He keeps you updated on what is going on with your case step by step. He is truly compassionate and fights for your rights. I personally would recommend him to anyone for a small case or a top profile case. When it comes to an Attorney, Ken is top notch and I wouldn't recommend anyone else. Thank you Ken for your service to this community and to my family. May you succeed in all your endeavors,
Mr. Ortner was appointed through the courts as my children's GAL, not only to validate any concerns I had, also because their voice needed to be heard. He was very thorough in speaking with each of my four children, finding out anything necessary that would endanger them or prove to be unfitting of a parent. Upon final conclusion, his representation of my children was more than adequate. They are were they need to be thanks to Mr. Ortner. I highly recommend him, my kids are worth every penny spent for him to represent them fairly, justly, and with a firm voice.
Attorney Ortner was appointed Guardian Ad Litem in my divorce case after it was found the first GAL appointed was representing my ex-wife’s boyfriend in his divorce case. Attorney Ortner was very professional and thorough in his work. His integrity and attention to detail impressed me throughout the case. He spent a great deal of time getting to know my children. He truly had their best interest at heart. He took the time to speak to teachers and other professionals who knew the children well. He kept in constant contact with me and thoroughly reviewed all the evidence presented to him. I recommend Attorney Ortner to anyone in search of a first class attorney.
I hired Mr. Ortner to handle my divorce. I met with him and explained what I wanted in my divorce decree. My ex had agreed with me to accept the conditions. Mr. Ortner assured me that there would be no problem. Although I called numerous times, he did not provide me with a copy of the write up until the day before our court date. He then sent me a generic divorce decree with NONE of the conditions I required. Since the agreement involved young children and their father was extremely violent, it was urgent that the agreement be correct. My ex insisted that he wanted the "new" agreement which caused numerous problems. When we went to court, Mr. Ortner didn't have any of the papers we needed for our hearing. He tried to tell me that it was my ex's lawyer who was required to bring them, but he wouldn't say that in front of the other lawyer. He held up our hearing while his people got the paperwork. I would represent myself before I hired Mr. Ortner to anything for me. I have the emails that prove these assertions.
