Our Firm

During my last year of law school Judge Ricky Polston, now the Chief Justice of the Florida Supreme Court, asked me what I planned to do after law school. I told him I planned on starting a law firm. His response: “See me in chambers.” Judge Polston convinced me to find the best lawyers and train under them. I took his advice, joining what I believe is one of the most talented law firms in the country.

Several years later, the real estate market crashed and I began receiving calls from property owners seeking help with failed real estate projects. Our firm could not take the cases due to its representation of lenders in these matters. So I formed Joseph D. Ort, P.L., and set out to solve our client’s real estate problems.

One of the most rewarding parts of our work is seeing those clients move from a dark place to now profitable real estate ventures. Our firm enjoys helping clients solve problems and build wealth. We intentionally stayed small, limiting the number of cases we took and resisting the temptation of unbridled growth. I hand-picked each member of our team, selecting only candidates offering traits I would want in one handling my own legal matters. I hope your experience with our firm exceeds your expectations, and creates a new impression of what a law firm can offer.
