Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, Inc. is excited to announce the addition of a new attorney! We happily welcome Tanya Ortega to our San Luis Obispo office.
Tanya began her career defending Fortune 100 and 500 companies at a large firm in Chicago, Illinois where her practice focused on personal injury, products liability and premises liability matters in the retail market. For years, Tanya successfully represented the interests of insurance companies and corporations in both state and federal courts across Illinois. In so doing, she gained invaluable insight into the defenses used by insurance companies to gain an advantage in litigation.
Since moving from Chicago to California, Tanya has shifted her practice to a more fulfilling role of representing injured individuals and their families in catastrophic personal injury and premises liability cases. At Harris Personal Injury, Tanya uses her unique perspective of the defense and judiciary to better represent our clients against insurance companies, corporations, and the government. Tanya invests in each client and devotes personal time to achieve maximum results in the courtroom as well as through settlement.
Tanya earned her law degree from Valparaiso University Law School in Valparaiso, Indiana, and graduated summa cum laude from the University of Houston in Houston, Texas. She also competed as a middle-distance runner on the UH cross country and track teams. Outside of work, Tanya is an avid runner and enjoys training for half and full marathon races. She is also a CrossFit Level-1 Trainer.
