    I see Mr. Ortiz in the courthouse on a very regular basis. He works very diligently on his cases, has a great knowledge of the law, and gets excellent results for his clients.

  • Feroz Farook Merchant

    I endorse this lawyer. Worked with Jimmy when we were both prosecutors, then as opposing counsel when I started defense work and then worked together when he started a criminal defense practice. He is not only a great lawyer but a good person. He cares about people and works extremely hard for his client. He is always available for those that need help. He is a great attorney.
