Principal AttorneyI am the attorney! I was born and raised in Washington and I love the Northwest. After working for various Immigration Law firms for four years, I opened my own practice, Ortiz Law Office, PLLC, in 2014. My practice focuses on both removal defense and affirmative immigration cases. My job brings me a lot of pleasure and I enjoy getting to know my clients. I am a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association and am admitted to the State Bar of Washington and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. I speak both English and Spanish. When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time outdoors in my garden – I like to consider myself an urban farmer of sorts!

I am Marta Font, born and raised in the Seattle area with Puerto Rican and Cuban roots. I’m exited to be part of the team at Ortiz Law Office as I have 8+ years experience as a legal assistant specializing in Immigration Law. Prior to my career in Immigration Law, I graduated from Western Washington University with a B.A. in Spanish and moved to Puerto Rico. I spent two years immersing myself in the culture and Spanish language. My love for the Latino community continued to grow and brought me back to Seattle to start my career and volunteer work. I’ve contributed to the community through my non-profit work as President of the Hispanic Seafair Organization, which empowers Hispanic women to further their education. I’ve also discovered a way to cultivate my creative side by becoming an entrepreneur, running my own jewelry business, where I create handmade pieces. My greatest pleasure is being a wife and mother and spending time with my family.
