What People are Saying

“Heather Connor has handled a number of litigation matters simultaneously for Pace, Inc. and Pace Europe Limited over the past six years.  Heather’s ability to think outside the box and coordinate all the interrelated legal issues, claims and business considerations was nothing short of amazing given the nature and complexity of the multifaceted areas of law involved. These included civil litigation on behalf of our company for corporate fraud and breach of fiduciary duty against two former executives which resulted in a multi-million dollar judgment in our favor as well as securing their North Carolina assets in satisfaction thereof. Heather then oversaw litigation to successfully transfer the judgment to the United Kingdom. In handling all these legal matters, the team at Ortiz & Schick was thorough, diligent, and responsive – whether night or day – and left no stone unturned. I would trust Ortiz & Schick with any litigation case and recommend the firm without any reservation.”

”Over the years, I have worked with each of Michael, John-Paul, and Heather on numerous commercial real estate transactions, and I have consistently found them to be an important resource. Whether it’s the purchase of a tract of land, the development of a shopping center, or the negotiation of a lease, the team at Ortiz & Schick invests the time to get to know the company they are representing and management’s expectations in each scenario.  They have always performed exceptionally well in their representation of our interests, and I would highly recommend them to anyone involved in the commercial real estate field.”
