Growing up in South Texas, Gabe Ortiz has a unique understanding of its people and culture.  It gives him great fulfillment to represent individuals who would otherwise not have a voice.  Whether injured through the negligence of another, or taken advantage of by their own insurance company, Gabe welcomes the challenge of fighting for these hardworking people in order to secure for them what is just.

Having already established a successful career in the media industry with iHeart (Clear Channel) media, in which he became one of the youngest Producers for a top 30 radio market, and was heard on the air by over 200,000 listeners in both San Antonio and the Rio Grande Valley, Gabe embarked upon a legal career. Gabe worked his way through law school, maintaining a full-time job while attending evening classes.  He was awarded a Dean’s Scholarship and was active on the St. Mary’s Mock Trial team.

Gabe now applies this same relentless work ethic and determination to his legal practice. He has first-chaired numerous trials in which a positive verdict was obtained for his client.

He has served on the staff of a former San Antonio City Councilman, as well as on the board of his neighborhood association.  Additionally, Gabe was a former Executive Board Member, and now Advisory Board Member, for Urban Soccer Leadership Academy, a program that serves underprivileged inner-city youth in San Antonio.

Gabe acknowledges that life doesn’t always deal a fair hand and circumstances beyond a person’s control can sometimes place him in precarious situations that he doesn’t know how to deal with.  Gabe is honored to help those who find themselves in these situations and be their advocate.
