Attorney Ted Smith

Personalized and Tenacious Representation

Well-respected among his clients and peers in the Chicago area community, Attorney Ted Smith has built a reputation as a litigator who can handle even the most precarious financial situations without sacrificing the needs of his clients. From bankruptcy strategies – including Chapter 7, 11, and 13 – and foreclosures to tricky creditor negotiations and short sales, he has provided comprehensive service to individuals and professional businesses.


Before he founded Smith Ortiz, P.C., he handled major mergers and acquisitions for a large accounting firm as a tax consultant. This in combination with his MBA has given him a unique insight into the financial world that many other bankruptcy attorneys have yet to attain. In addition to being permitted to practice in State Courts of Illinois, he is also admitted to Federal Courts of Illinois, so he can handle your case, regardless of any complexities.

Laws and litigation surrounding finances, especially when it comes to bankruptcy and foreclosure defense, seem to always be fluctuating with the times. Attorney Smith stays on top of this shifting world of legalities and understands how bankruptcy court systems operate. Due to his dedication and persistence, he has earned numerous recommendations and praise from his peers and colleagues.

Responsive Representation

To further empower his clients and strengthen his team, Mr. Smith has enlisted the help of Chicago bankruptcy attorney Raquel Smith Ortiz. With her help, the law firm can take on more cases with greater results than ever before. After all, a teamwork approach and a second set of eyes on cases is always an advantage his clients can appreciate.

Smith Ortiz, P.C. is located in two office locations, one on the north side of Chicago and the other in the downtown area. As a current resident of Chicago, Mr. Smith has a personal connection and commitment to his community. By always staying at the top of his game, he hopes to help his clients feel more like friends as they overcome difficult financial obstacles together.
