Knowledgeable and Professional
I hired the attorneys at Ellis and Ortega for a criminal case about two months ago. I was very satisfied with the level of care and professionalism that I was treated with. Mr. Ortega did a fantastic job and the office and support staff returned phone calls and emails when they said they would. Due to Mr. Ortega's expertise and legal knowledge, I received the dismissal order this week which is months earlier than I had anticipated. They are definitely my go-to attorneys for any legal matter from now on!

One of the best of this area!
Randolph Ortega represented my boyfriend a few years ago over a probation revocation that wasn't his fault. The DA attempted to give him the full term in prison time, but Mr. Ortega worked hard on the case and won out in the end. We have yet to see another attorney as aggressive and dedicated to doing his best. I would definitely recommend getting him. He's very professional, understanding, friendly (and a bit of a jokester), and tries his hardest. Exceptional, especially for a lawyer of so many years.

Great Criminal Defense Lawyer

Posted by anonymous | December 19, 2008
I was charged in a criminal case and Mr. Ortega helped out of the mess.
Mr. Ortega was very knowledgeable and worked very hard. I was kept informed throughout my case. I do wish he took phone calls because he always made me make an appointment to talk to him. The cost was high, but in the long run I am very happy I made the right decision.
