About Ellie

My name is Ellie Tipton Ortiz.  I am a certified mediator and bonded & certified Legal Document Service provider. I have worked for numerous attorneys and began working for myself in 1998 when I franchised and opened the first location of Legal Assistance Center in Laguna Hills.

Over the course of my career, I have assisted thousands of clients with their paperwork related to Divorce, Child Custody, Living Trust, Corporations, Credit Repair, Immigration and much more.  Clients would contact me after spending tens of thousands on attorney’s fees and in a matter of days and with some divorce mediation, I would complete a divorce that had dragged on for years.  I’ve assisted numerous divorce couples ranging from cases with no children or assets, to complex cases with abuse or estates valued over 100 million dollars.

In 2008 I sold the Legal Assistance Center, Laguna Hills location, but kept the franchise rights and moved to Spain with my husband and children.  We spent two years traveling around Europe.  While we were in Europe my husband started a clothing line, EuroPapi Motorcycle Streetwear.  I supported him in every way and helped him set up his corporations, trademarks, etc.  In 2010 we decided to move back to Laguna Beach and open our first US location of his clothing line.  Now that we’re back in the United States, he can do what he loves and I am once again, doing what I love.

A high percentage of my business has always been from repeat customers and referrals.  I welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service possible.  Since returning to Laguna Beach I have been nominated for the Woman in Business Award two years in a row.  I am the Past President of the Woman’s Club of Laguna Beach and a member of Soroptimist International of Laguna Beach.
