Made a Bad Situation Better
Amber Lee was such an advocate for me. She helped resolve an issue with a previous employer regarding back wages owed. She was knowledgeable and skilled with litigation but also truly empathic to my situation. I knew my case was in good hands and I had one less thing to worry about which absolutely helped make this process more bearable. She got me the outcome I wanted and deserved. Thank you, Amber and everyone at the Law Office of Nicholas F. Ortiz for everything.

Fantastic Help
Marques Lipton was very helpful in working on my case. He was attentive and supportive so that I could finish my case early and was incredibly communicative without causing me additional stress. I would strongly suggest using this firm for your needs. My experience was really positive!

Outstanding Experience
As we are nearing the end of our bankruptcy, my husband and I would like to take the time to commend the law firm of Nicholas Ortiz for the extraordinary competence, diligence, and promptness of all our interactions with the firm over the last five years. In our first meeting with Nicholas, we received an in-depth explanation of the procedures involved in bankruptcy. Then our case was expedited of by John O’Donnell which culminated with a very satisfactory bankruptcy plan. We would especially like to note that all emails to the firm were promptly answered and the issues immediately addressed. We would highly recommend the law firm of Nicholas Ortiz.

Marques Lipton review
I do not believe that anyone likes to even think about filing for Bankruptcy and I was very nervous about the process. Marques immediately made me feel at ease and explained my options. He was patient with my questions and responded promptly to any concerns I had. He made the whole process a lot less stressful and I am very grateful for his help.

Swift, competent, prompt service
I could not have had a better experience. I felt that the fee was reasonable compared to others. Bankruptcy is stressful and embarrassing to say the least. I was coached throughout the process. If I had questions, I usually received a call or email back within minutes. Even after my debts were discharged, I continued to get emails for advice.

Unpleasant process made easy
I would definitely recommend this firm to anyone who finds him or herself in the unfortunate position of having to file for bankruptcy. The whole team was courteous, respectful, and extremely helpful and supportive throughout the entire process.

Raven Moeslinger
I've had to retain legal professionals several times over the years. I can honestly say that dealing with Raven Moesliger has been the most positive experience. His level of knowledge with regards to MA wage law is second to none. He always has time to answer questions and his communication is excellent. I have never waited more that 1 hour for a return call. I've even spoken to him on Sundays which is unheard of in the legal field. Raven was able to guide and advise me throughout my case. In the end i am very happy with the result and would recommend him and the Law Offices of Nicholas F Ortiz to anyone that is dealing with violations of MA wage law.

Nicholas Ortiz has helped me three times over the past eight years. When his office staff was too busy to help on requests with a deadline near, he took care of it himself. He has been informative, professional and a gentleman always.

Rescued by Raven
This is an excellent firm with not only lawyers but people who are there for you and not rest till you are satisfied. My settlement awarded me with a car and 1000$ and that is thanks to Raven Moslinger. I didn't have to leave my home, just answered a few calls, sent some emails and signed on the dotted line. Raven was impressive with his skills and I will be confident giving his name to a friend knowing that I placed them in good hands with Nicholas F. Ortiz law firm.

Great firm
I will just be honest here , I had to go through bankruptcy and the attorney I had from this firm ( Marques Lipton) was above and beyond going through this process , always returned phone calls in very timely manner , kept me informed at every turn , made this very easy when it could have been very stressful , Thank You Marques

Could not be more satisfied
I could not recommend Marques Lipton more highly as an attorney. I spoke with 3 attorneys prior to Marques all of whom told me that Chapter 7 bankruptcy was not an option for me and that I needed to either avoid bankruptcy all together or file a Chapter 13 and prepare for a very large payment each month. Marques told me that Chapter 7 was in fact an option for me and after a couple of quick and easy meetings and one short visit to court I received a Chapter 7 discharge, was able to get out from under a house that I was far under water on and am now able to start rebuilding my credit and planning for my future. Marques helped me save at least 5 years of my life and again I could not recommend him highly enough to anyone who like myself is in the unfortunate position of being over their head financially.

Small case- still made me feel like a big client
My case was personally handled by Mr Jonathan Lang who is an associate of Mr Nicholas Ortiz. My case was a small nonpayment of wages. Although it was small Mr Lang made me feel as though I was one of his most important clients. He updated me as soon as there was news and made sure that I understood at each step what was going on. Since laws can be confusing and overwhelming he kept explaining what exactly were my options and what possible outcomes could come from each one. He was calm and reassuring. I had the utmost confidence in Mr Lang. I would recommend Mr Lang, and in extension the firm, to anyone.

Very attentitive group
I had the pleasure of working with Raven, and I must say this group was so attentive to my case. He constantly checked in with me to let me know the status of everything that was going on. Anytime I called he either answered the phone right away, or promptly returned my call. This was my first time ever dealing with something like this, and they made the process so easy for me to understand. I would work with Raven again in a heartbeat.

The right legal advise and work at the right time
Their firm, specifically Marques Lipton and the team there, were instrumental in guiding our corporation through the tedious process or reorganizing our business successfully. Everything was outlined for us very clearly as to potential outcomes, their work and communication was thoroughly transparent, and received great professional advice. We were able to reorganize successfully and our firm is in much better shape thanks to them.

I have worked with Nicholas Ortiz for several years on very difficult business situations. Nick and his firm could not have been better. They not only solved all of our issues but took more of a personal approach and walked us through each step and made sure we understood everything that was going on. I found them to be one of the only firms that actually returned phone calls in a timely matter or answered the phone when yhou called. I would recommend Nicholas Ortiz to anyone with legal problems

Excellent Work
I've never had an experience with an employer refusing to pay me my owed wages, but since it happened with my former employer, I needed to contact a lawyer.I contacted the Law Offices of Nicholas Ortiz. After a few phone calls with my information and time for the legal wheels to start turning, I was given the wages I was owed by my previous employer with the help of Raven Moeslinger. He did a prompt and excellent job in keeping me informed about the whole process and was extremely quick to reply to any messages that I left. I highly recommend Raven and the folks over at the Law Office of Nicholas Ortiz.
