David A. Ortiz
David A. Ortiz, a Queens County native, born of Colombian and Peruvian parents, is a conscientious attorney who understands the plight that clients and their families suffer during the divorce process. Mr. Ortiz brings a unique perspective to the Law Offices of Donald Mastrodomenico, P.C. He was a court attorney for the Supervising Justice of the Matrimonial Parts in Bronx County, the Honorable La Tia W. Martin. Mr. Ortiz was responsible for managing the daily matrimonial calendar and conferencing the numerous matrimonial cases that were scheduled to appear before the Part. He facilitated settlements between parties in contentious divorce actions by narrowing the issues and by offering his knowledge of the law to resolve any remaining issues. Mr. Ortiz also drafted decisions on motions concerning all types of procedural and substantive issues of law for the Judge’s review, including decisions after trial that required reviewing all submitted evidence and testimony. With this experience, Mr. Ortiz has encountered almost all matrimonial issues that could arise in a divorce action, having thoroughly researched and drafted decisions for a Supreme Court Matrimonial Justice.
Aside from his familiarity with the court system, it is this knowledge and experience that he brings to the Law Offices of Donald Mastrodomenico, P.C., as an advocate. Mr. Ortiz, as a student of the law, consistently attends continuing legal education classes for issues relating to family law, and is kept abreast of all changes to the law and rules. Mr. Ortiz opines that, with the exception of a few cases, most divorce matters should settle without the need for court involvement. However, when this is not possible, Mr. Ortiz is well prepared to advocate strongly in court for an outcome that is most beneficial to the clients of the Law Offices of Donald Mastrodomenico, P.C.
