Attorney Profile

A member of Santoni, Vocci & Ortega, LLC, Chelsea Ortega divides her practice between consumer protection matters and personal injury litigation. Located in Towson, Maryland, she represents clients throughout the greater Baltimore metropolitan area. Admitted to practice before all Maryland state courts since 2012, Ms. Ortega has received an "Excellent" peer review rating through Avvo, which is just one indication of the high regard in which she is held by her fellow members of the bar.

Ms. Ortega’s consumer practice has involved her representation of victims of state and federal laws that are designed to protect them. These have included going up against debt collection agencies in cases governed by, among other statutes, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. Other matters that Ms. Ortega has handled in this part of her practice have included such acts of auto dealership fraud as forgery and misrepresentation, and her experience has extended to Maryland’s lemon law and the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.

In her personal injury and wrongful death practice, Ms. Ortega provides aggressive advocacy on behalf of people who have been harmed as the result of the negligence or recklessness of other parties. She has been able to obtain significant compensation through both jury awards and negotiated settlements in cases that have arisen out of truck and other motor vehicle crashes, premises liability, domestic violence, nursing home abuse and dog bites. A graduate of The Pennsylvania State University, where she received a Bachelor of Arts with highest honors in 2008, Ms. Ortega pursued her legal education at the University of Maryland School of Law and was awarded her Juris Doctor in 2012.
