WELCOME TO ANDRES ORTIZ LAW
Welcome to our webpage! Andres Ortiz Law was founded in 2017 by attorney Andres Ortiz to zealously represent noncitizens and their families in Southern California, including but not limited to Long Beach, Orange County, Los Angeles, and the Inland Empire. Mr. Ortiz was an elementary school teacher, with a Master in Education Degree through the prestigious ACE Program from the University of Notre Dame, when one of his favorite student’s mother was apprehended by Immigration and Customs Enforcement Officers when she was taking her children to school. This provided a watershed moment in Mr. Ortiz’s life because he saw the devastating effects of our US Immigration System on good, decent families. Because of Mr. Ortiz’s student’s experience, Mr. Ortiz was moved to attend law school with aspirations of becoming an immigration attorney.
Loyola Law School Of Los Angles
Mr. Ortiz attended Loyola Law School of Los Angeles where he was fortunate to intern with some of the most influential immigrants’ rights organizations such as the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, the National Immigration Law Center, and the American Civil Liberties Union- Immigrants’ Rights Project. Additionally, in his last year of law school, he externed with Judge Reinhardt in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Mr. Ortiz used these experiences of working with some of the brightest legal minds to match his legal skill set with his commitment to the immigration community.
Upon passing the bar in 2011, Mr. Ortiz began practicing immigration law. He quickly gained the respect of his peers and clients as an attorney who possesses a tremendous knowledge base but is compassionate in his representation. In 2014, Mr. Ortiz was nominated to be a part of the Los Angeles County Bar Association Immigration Section Executive Committee. Recently, he was named a Rising Star by SuperLawyers.
Mr. Ortiz looks forward to using his experiences and desire to help immigrant families to help you with your immigration-related needs.
