Arthur E. Ortiz

Lawyer & Mediator
Arthur E. Ortiz

I have been representing clients in State and Federal Court here in Washington since 1997.

In litigation, I find the best results occur when the client and lawyer work as a team. Clear and complete communication is necessary for a client to accurately understand their risks going to trial or the risks avoided accepting a settlement offer. I make sure that the client understands what is needed and expected at every step.

As a mediator, I deliver the best value when parties commit to adopting a good faith effort in resolving conflict. I help reasonable minds prevail. If parties in a dispute choose to address issues in good faith, a mediation, or series of mediation sessions, can resolve a dispute in a fraction of the cost it would take just to get to a trial.
