Attorney Pamela Ortiz is a FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH!
"SHE WALKS THE WALK" THAT OTHERS CAN ONLY TALK! I wish I could give Attorney Pamela Ortiz more stars! She a GENERAL. I was in jail for 4 days, arraigned, bail was $325,000,000 I was faced with spending at least about 6years in prison with serious charges I was a Mom, a Wife, Entrepreneur and a leader of 5000+ co-op group. Because I was arrested on a weekend I met her on my 3rd day she introduced herself and asked if I was ok? Immediately I burst into tears. She displayed such passion and patience as I was trying to get myself together. She has huge heart and fierce determination in helping people who get into trouble and end up jail with serious charges. I highly recommend her! I was out 3days later and didn't have to post bail! Since day 1 she was very knowledgeable, compassionate and helpful She's well PREPARED AND DISCIPLINED to take on high and risky cases with one goal in mind (VICTORY) She's wired to represent clients with dignity and respect. She knows the law and FIGHTS WELL. Everyone I know speaks very high of her because she executes! period. Everytime we had to appear before the Judge I'm am fully confident in her work and fight for justice! Long story short I was faced with a long prison time. I didn't have to spend a day in prison. I'm FREE! THANKS to this extremely hard working diligent Attorney. She provided me with prompted phone calls with any questions I had, she listened to my every concerns, and kept me posted with all updates with my case. She continued to reassure me and gave me hope. SHES EXCELLENT in REPRESENTING clients and does a phenomenal job!
