Jeannette Ortiz-Hausmann, Principal of the J. Ortiz-Hausmann Law Firm, PLLC, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Lawyers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in family law.
Ms. Ortiz-Hausmann is an independent attorney specializing in family and matrimonial law, including surrogacy cases, as well as real estate and personal injury law. Her interest in the law began after serving as a juror for a physical injury trial where the winning side was represented by a bold and stylish female attorney who fascinated Ms. Ortiz-Hausmann throughout the proceedings. After the trial concluded, the judge offered the jurors an opportunity to ask questions, and offered to help Ms. Ortiz-Hausmann through the process of becoming an attorney after she expressed her newfound interest in the profession. Both the trial and her interactions with the judge were formative, and Ms. Ortiz-Hausmann went on to earn her Juris Doctor from the Pace University School of Law in 2002.
Since 2014, Ms. Ortiz-Hausmann has been the principal attorney at the J. Ortiz-Hausmann Law Firm, PLLC. She has been admitted to practice law in both Connecticut and New York, and currently handles between three and five cases daily in remote conferences. Ms. Ortiz-Hausmann is driven by her passion for helping clients understand their rights and find their direction in cases that are often complex and difficult to understand, and she attributes her success to treating each client with patience and compassion.
As a part of her commitment to helping clients navigate the challenges of the legal system, Ms. Ortiz-Hausmann sits on the APV Panel of the Bronx Family Court and dedicates a part of her practice to handling pro bono cases. She is active in the Bronx Bar Association, and looks forward to expanding her practice in the coming years, with plans to hire several more attorneys and paralegals and open another office. Ms. Ortiz-Hausmann lives by the dictum to treat others as you would like to be treated, and counsels others that “if there is something you truly want to achieve, you can always achieve it, since you are the only person who can hold yourself back.”
