About Ellie E. Ortiz
My name is Ellie E. Ortiz. I am a certified mediator and bonded & certified Legal Document Service provider.
I have been helping clients prepare their legal documents and mediate their divorces for over 24 years.
Many clients have contacted me after spending tens of thousands of dollars on attorney’s fees, and in a matter of weeks and with some divorce mediation, I am able to complete a divorce that has dragged on for several years.
I have assisted numerous divorcing couples ranging from cases with no children or assets, to complex cases with abuse or estates valued at over 100 million dollars.
About Me And Our Services in Mission Viejo, CA
In 2007 I had the opportunity to move to Spain with my husband and 3 young children. We spent three years with my husband’s family and traveling around Europe. This gave our children an education beyond that which could be obtained in a classroom. Our children are now grown and their adventures in Europe have become the subject of many college essays.
I served as the Orange County REALTORS® 2018 South County Affiliate Chair. I am currently the Chair for the Laguna Board of REALTORS® and a proud member of the California Escrow Association and the Orange County Escrow Association.
Our office specializes in helping the public, realtors, affiliates and their clients with all legal documents such as divorce mediation, living trusts, credit repair, out of escrow deeds (affidavit of death, quitclaim, trust transfer), probate, setting up corporations/llc’s, QDRO’s, power of attorney’s, etc. Our goal is to help our clients reach a quick resolution to their legal issues so all parties reach their ultimate goal, which may include getting their property on the market and sold.
