DAVID COLE was raised in Gainesville, Texas and after becoming licensed to practice law in 1992, David Cole saw the injustice that many injury victims suffered while pursuing their right of recovery in Texas. He saw firsthand how many insurance companies and their lawyers bullied victims to limit their damages and recovery. Appalled at this blatant unfairness, David has spent his career representing injury victims.

Cole is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, Texas Trial Lawyers Association, Dallas Trial Lawyers Association, Dallas Bar Association, and the American Association of Justice. Fewer than 1% of U.S. lawyers are members of the combined Million Dollar and Multi-Million Dollar Forums. Established in 1993, the Million Dollar Advocates Forum (which includes the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum) is one of the most prestigious groups of trial lawyers in the United States. Membership is limited to attorneys who have won million and multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements. There are over 4000 members throughout the country and Cole is one of the unique few.

GLORIA ORTIZ was raised in El Paso, Texas and has primarily focused on victim’s rights since becoming licensed to practice law in 2000. Ortiz brings a unique perspective to protecting injury victims considering that she was a licensed insurance claims adjuster for more than 15 years. After working for insurance companies such as State Farm and CNA, she has first-hand knowledge as to the dealings and inner workings of insurance companies whose sole goal is to pay little or nothing to injury victims.

Combining this knowledge with her passion to help injury victims makes Ortiz a force to be reckoned with. Ortiz is fluent in Spanish and leaves no stone unturned in pursuing justice. Ortiz is a member of Texas Trial Lawyers Association, Dallas Trial Lawyers Associations, Dallas Bar Association, and Former Board Member of CASA, Ellis County.
