I was impressed with your professionalism, your tenacity, attention to detail, unwavering allegiance to the defendant, and your overall performance as an officer of the court.

  • The defense attorney is a seasoned veteran, a former Kings County ADA who is now the managing partner of a successful firm. He is relaxed and in command throughout the trial, and he knows how to keep all eyes and ears on him. His eyebrow raises, exclamations of shock, and probing questions all feel genuine, the ol' razzle-dazzle at its best - I Love Franklin Ave. Blog, August 12, 2010 N.J. , Juror #10, People v. Usamah Sidburry
  • I was severely injured while working for my employer on a scaffold that was about twenty feet in the air. My employer did not provide me with any safety equipment. When the scaffold that I was working on was knocked down by a delivery truck, I was thrown to the floor and became permanently disabled. Hugo Ortega pursued a claim against the property owner, the delivery company and my employer. In addition to my workers’ compensation benefits, I received a very large settlement that has given me the financial security to live comfortably.A. Guaman
  • I was arrested for a crime I did not commit, spent two days in jail, and then I was released after seeing a judge who said the charges were dismissed. I immediately called several lawyers who told me I would never win my case against the City of New York. Then a friend referred me to Hugo Ortega. He immediately filed a claim with the City of New York, and due to his aggressive approach, the City settled with me. I received an amount ten times more than what I ever imagined I would get. Hugo Ortega fought very hard for me when no one else would, and for that I am forever grateful!J. Figueroa
  • When my four year old son fractured his leg after falling off a trampoline at a birthday party, I was referred to Hugo Ortega. He fought very hard for us, and as a result, the case settled. My son will receive payments starting when he turns 18 and continue for four years. I never thought that we would ever receive such a large settlement! Thank you for working so hard for us.C.K.
  • Howard Tanner, a high-profile private criminal defense lawyer...The Miami Herald, September 16, 2010

  • ...After I explained all of the circumstances to Mr. Tanner, he fully investigated my case and uncovered the truth. He fought hard for me in court and didn't let the D.A. get away with anything.

I don't know what I would have done without Howard Tanner. He is simply the best!J.C.

  • I was accused of assaulting a man who came into my store to cause trouble. I was outraged that I could be arrested for something like this. Howard Tanner defended me from the accusations.

    Thank you!T. T.
  • I was brought up on very serious disciplinary charges by the NYPD. I was accused of endangering the welfare of a child.

Mr. Ortega, was amazing, believed in me and fought for me.

    Mr. Ortega, thank you for everything!A. R.
