  • Eli Aragorn Echols

    Tracie and I worked together in a small firm for over four years. I observed her in all kinds of situations. I believe this permits me to say that Tracie is an attorney of the highest devotion to her clients, the highest ethics and professionalism, and the highest skills in family based immigration benefits, U and T visas, Violence Against Women Act-based immigration benefits, and Consular Processing. She also has solid experience in student visas and a strong understanding of removal/deportation defense and motion work and briefing before the Immigration Court and Board of Immigration Appeals. I would not hesitate to recommend Tracie to any potential client.
