I met with Tracy in Sept., 2011 to discuss criminal accusations that were made against me, which consisted of over 6 counts of embezzlement, forgery, and fraud. It was a terrifying and daunting moment in my life. I had never been in any legal trouble before and, when I met with Tracy, I was 2 months into my case.
After many hours spent reading case law and studying the details of my charges, I found a rather strong argument for my defense, one that I believed could get my charges dismissed - the 4 year statute of limitations. I am not a person who is comfortable and willing to put my fate in another person's hands; by September 2011, I had concluded my current attorney wasn't up to snuff - he was a family friend who had no hunger, with little to no concern for my livelihood. I wanted a tenacious advocate, an attorney who would take my case personally...and would share the conviction that my charges could, indeed, be eradicated on the SOL argument.
I found Tracy from her blog, which I felt displayed an impressive knowledge of white collar crime. Because of her blog and my correspondence with her via email [she was very detailed in her insight + advice re: my case], I decided she was someone I needed to meet with. At the point I met with her, I had meetings with approximately 16 other LA based attorneys - from small to large firms -- and, though some were knowledgeable, none of them had that intangible X FACTOR in their eyes - the inner craving to get their clients acquitted.
When I met with Tracy, my first reaction was how much of contrast there was between her and the other attorneys I had met with. She listened intently, with complete focus on what I was saying and, even more than that, I saw COMPASSION in her eyes as I explained my charges. She heard my points about the statue of limitations angle and brought more to the table -- insight I would never have had the ability to deduce on my own.
Needless to say, I was impressed. I realized she was a person who had the 3 qualities of a great attorney: passion, knowledge, and experience. In telling her about my charges and case, I saw "fight" in her eyes.
I felt she connected to what I was saying and when she said something, I believed it. She was 1 of 2 attorneys (out of 14 highly regarded others) that had the ability to make me feel in good hands. When you're going through a legal battle, you want -- no, scratch that, you NEED -- to know that you are doing your best....that there is no rock being left unturned....and that, if push comes to shove and you lose, there is NOTHING you, or your attorney, could have done better. Having that feeling was EVERYTHING to me.
I ended up hiring an attorney who had gotten someone exonerated for an SOL argument exactly the same as mine; otherwise, I would have hired Tracy and never looked back. In the end, because of that inner void, or lacking, I felt about my first attorney -- which resulted in my pursuing more qualified representation -- we ultimately were able to convince the judge that the 3 year delay warranted the dropping of the charges. And, just like that, I was free!
Despite not having the privilege of working with Tracy, I am confident she would have achieved a similar result. So few attorneys have true commitment to their clients well being and that X factor that separates them from the rest and gives you the "no regrets" feeling at the close of your trial., whether it be a good or bad result.
Tracy Green has that X factor.
I will always be grateful for her time and her insight regarding my case. She is an outstanding attorney, a tenacious criminal law expert who will truly fight for you.

Please note: I have had NO CORRESPONDENCE with Ms. Green in the past 2.5 years. I wrote this review on my own accord, recalling the details of my interaction with her.

As a physician, running into situation that required advice from an attorney was extremely stressful. I was one unfortunate physician who was being investigated by a Medical Board. Fortunately for me, I found Tracy who ended up represented me in this matter. She was organized, extremely knowledgeable, experience, patience, positive, proactive and caring, a trait that you do not these days. She worked diligently reviewing and organize all our files, advised me on how to answer the board questions and kept up with all the communication between myself and the board. Although I know I did not break any laws but the allegations were serious that I felt I needed to have an excellent to represent my case. It seemed dismal to me at first but after working with Tracy, she gave me hope and my case was eventually closed as the medical board found no evidence of violations. Now I can focus on patient care something I enjoy doing! I strongly recommend Ms. Tracy Green!

She was very helpful and advised me that I needed to hire a local attorney to resolve my situation. She informed me that the state of FL has strict laws regarding HIPAAA. An since I had been a patient at a private mental health facility they did not have to comply to the law but functioned as an independent entity.

Tracy Green did an outstanding job on my case (medical licensing), representing my interests before Medical Board that lead to almost instant resolution of the issues. She is very efficient, knowledgeable in the field, and obviously very experienced. She is extremely friendly, confident and sharp, making communication with her very enjoyable. She gave me very generous discount at the end. Also, she recommended another outstanding lawyer outside of her field who helped me tremendously. I recommend Tracy highly.

I have been fortunate to have known Tracy Green, her astute associates and staff for eight years. Historically, attorneys have been jokingly regarded as charlatans, stemming from a long legacy of distrust. Until, of course, you need one. Tracy Green is the one you NEED! She is a disarmingly humble, honest and brilliant attorney. It then follows that a talented lawyer, with unparalleled client-focus, constitutes the best of all attorneys: Smart, veritable and passionate. Given her tenure in the industry and proven track record, it's no surprise Tracy Green is revered by clients, colleagues and administrators, alike. From our first meeting, she rejected the standard hierarchical attorney-client relationship. When I raised concerns about the strategy she would pursue, Tracy Green genuinely welcomed and sometimes adopted my input! When my contribution was less helpful, she politely explain why it "may not be useful’. Tracy Green was always organized, responsive and thorough. Whether she achieved this balance by arriving über early, remaining eerily late or by sharply curtailing her personal activities, she always made my case her priority. I knew she was fully vested in my case. In an incident more suited for urban legend than a legal matter, that suspicion was later confirmed. We were in court when the judge inexplicably assessed a sizable bond. I was devastated. Without hesitation, Tracy Green dashed out of the building, down the street to a bail bondsman and secured a bond, using her own funds! Who does that? Attorneys clamor to get paid, not to extend credit. At the time, I thought my experience unique. Yet, other clients expressed similar anecdotes. By every measure, Tracy Green is a stellar attorney! Part strategist, part emissary, Tracy Green garnered every available resource to win my case, including requesting a one-on-one with the district attorney. She worked tirelessly to prevail against seemingly insurmountable odds. Ultimately it was her talent and moxie that secured the desired outcome. Tracy Green cinched my perception as a caring, resolute, attorney for whom I am eternally grateful. When you combine all of her uncommon traits you get a glimpse of a remarkable professional!

Tracy Green was assigned to assist me with a breach of contract issue with a private medical practice over 10 years ago. She at the time was a junior associate in a group practice and had been referred to me by a hospital administrator. Although the hospital was represented by opposing counsel, Tracy had garnered such respect that the hospital began to refer preferred contacts to her. In my particular case, Tracy negotiated a very favorable settlement despite an team of opposing counsel. I subsequently retained her as a resource and she is my go to person for all matters within her area of expertise. In my business practice, this has primarily been related to contract disputes and negotiations with small and large group medical practices, as well as third party administrators such as United health, and the office of the sate insurance commissioner. I've not required her services for criminal matters but I'm familiar with others who have also referenced her expertise in this arena for both state and federal matters. My most frequent interactions are more of the quick call in anticipation of an issue. Tracy has always been prompt to not only respond, but also research the issue, and provide a concise, vetted, level headed summation of the scenario. She is an attorney who is able to assess and command a situation so that no matter whether your in a favorable position or less desirable one, you can sleep easier knowing that you're well briefed of your options and well represented.

My husband and I run a healthcare business that was unjustly closed due to disgruntled employees claiming fraud. The State stopped our funding and refused to pay us for services that had already been delivered. We came to Tracy and she explained that even though we are in the right, it is very difficult and a long process to fight the government. Since we did not like what we heard, we decided to hire other council, who told us what we wanted to hear. I won't go into detail about the disaster we found ourselves in but the fact remains that we came back to Tracy to continue our case and deal with our previous attorney for poor misrepresentation. Once we began working with Tracy, we understood what a real attorney was all about. During the time we worked with her we kept changing strategies because she was right from the start, fighting the government is a nightmare and towards the end of our battle, we ourselves were not sure if we even wanted our business back. What we did want were our names cleared. There was never a time that Tracy did not respond to a phone call or listen to our fears and concerns. She was always there for us. She also had direct contact with heads of dept of health services and was in constant contact with them until the case was resolved and we received what was owed to us and got our license back. It is truly a shame that someone could put Tracy in negative light by one review. Tracy is not only smart and has needed connections, but she has a heart. She is efficient, kind, considerate and will tell you exactly the way it is. She is meant to be an attorney because the help and relief that she provides to people in need is amazing and even though she has many clients and an amazing son, she makes you feel as if you are the most important person to her when you speak to her by phone or sit in her office.
Tracy, you are great. We are honored to have had a chance to work with you and to be able to call you our friend.

I run a company selling antique and modern furniture on the Internet. That's my bread and butter, my livelihood.
One day, suddenly, my website went down, my company email no longer worked, I WAS OUT OF BUSINESS!
I was shocked! DESPERATE! At my whits end...!!
After the initial disbelief I eventually realized that the web-hosting company I had trusted for more than a decade, with all my Internet Services had, in effect, hijacked my business! They had re-registered my domain in their name, then allowed the registration to expire!!
I tried emailing them, calling, leaving dozens of messages, all to no avail. Then I called Enom, the registrar they are registered through, only to hear that I could open an inquiry, but it would take at least three months, and not to get my hopes up...@#%$*!!
It was obvious, I needed a lawyer!
Luckily, a wise friend suggested I get in touch with Green & Associates. I dialed their number and got Tracy Green on the line. She quickly understood my predicament as well as my desperation. Tracy asked me a bunch of questions about my web-host while I could hear her nimbly typing away on her keyboard. To my surprise, less than an hour later, Tracy had located the owner of the web-hosting company at his day job and called him up. A few hours later I had my domain, my business and my life back!
It's amazing what a call from a smart lawyer can accomplish!

I’m a registered Architect with over 30 years of design and building experience and have worked on both the East and West Coast of the United States. I was fortunate to meet Tracy about 13 years ago shortly after moving to the greater Los Angeles area. Tracy came highly recommended by an old friend who she helped navigate a serious legal matter.
Since meeting Tracy, Green Associates has provided me with valuable legal advice on more than one occasion. Three times to be exact, I wouldn’t seek advice from anyone else. I have grown to appreciate her smart, thoughtful and thorough approach to solving complex legal issues. Her quick grasp of concepts and details is second only to her stellar research abilities. I have worked with several attorneys prior to working with Tracy and she is by far the most authentic, brilliant and conscientious attorney I have ever worked with.
In one case Green Associates helped me resolve a complex real estate / business Partnership with an old friend on the East Coast. With Tracy’s help I was able to resolve this mismanaged real estate case and walk away with funds that I honestly thought were gone forever. Tracy researched the case and stated that I had solid grounds to bring my partner to court for mismanagement. I knew we could win this court case with Tracy at my side. I resisted taking this route since my family and my partner’s family have been friends for over 50 years and live in the same town. I wanted to avoid any undue tension between our respective families. Once again, Tracy was able to negotiate a settlement that was acceptable to me while sparing my former Partners reputation, not to mention sparing his family from the trauma of a law suit. Thankfully Tracy provided me enough facts and evidence to make an informed decision. Years later I know I made the correct decision with Tracy’s legal support and advice.
I haven’t always been in a position to pay Tracy immediately for her legal services. Tracy understands that we all go through difficult periods in our lives and she is always there to help and work out a fair solution. We even bartered services on an earlier case which helped me out tremendously. What other attorney would do this, especially in Los Angeles? This speaks volumes to her kindness, strong character and love of her profession. If anyone suggests otherwise they are probably not being truthful.
On a more personal note, I know Tracy as an incredibly dedicated mom who despite her busy work schedule always finds time for her family and time to volunteer in her community. Tracy is an outstanding individual and someone I admire. I feel very fortunate to have met Tracy and I am happy to now call her my friend.
I highly recommend Green Associates for all of your business or personal legal matters.

When faced with adversity that seems so overwhelming that is when we need the guidance, encouragement, great knowledge and dedication from your legal councilor. Tracy Green is representing all these qualities and her ability to explain the legal details and procedures put you at ease. As an attorney she is forthcoming with what to be expected and have the understanding with all challenges that you are facing.
I am very grateful that I met Tracy and had the opportunity to have her represent us. Thank you Tracy for your help and be part of our lives. In you, we found not only great attorney but also a friend.

Very professional. Not just a lawyer, she goes the extra mile for her client to make sure everything is in order. She fights for the client till the very end. Extraordinary patience, wonderful staff of associates who equally care for the client. I highly recommend this great attorney. I will forever be grateful to Tracey Green and her staff for the immaculate service provided both inside and outside the courtroom. Just an overall good person with a tremendous heart, who has the ability to calm you down in the most severe and intense circumstances. Tracey does not just present herself as an attorney, but also as a friend.

My nephew was facing some serious consequences for some actions at his high school, which could have had a very bad impact on his future. When my sister called me I found Tracy's firm. The matter called for using just the right blend of "making amends" and "knowing how to enforce his rights." Basically the critical result was to deal with this matter at the administrative level before the charges became public. I can't say too much more about the details, but if you want a lawyer who knows how to resolve a matter you should interview Tracy. Any lawyer can promise how "tough" they will be, but sometimes toughness will only result in prolonging the conflict, when you really need to make it go away. Tracy was honest about the consequences and as a result my nephew got great advice.

PLEASE EXCUSE MY USE OF ALL CAPS. I HAVE KNOWN TRACY FOR OVER 12 YAERS. TRACY GREEN ACCEPTED A CASE FOR ME PRO BONO. IN THE EXCECUTION OF HER PROFFESION, TRACY WENT THE DISTANCE FOR ME AS IF SHE WAS BEING PAYED TOP DOLLAR. TRACY WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN THE RECOVERY OF MY LIFE AS IT WAS TO BE FOR NOW AND FUTURE OUTLOOK. HER FILEINGS IN COURT AND PREPAREING MYSELF AS TO WHAT TO EXPECT EACH TIME WE STEPPED INTO COURT LEFT ME AT AWE WHEN THE OTHER SIDE AND THE JUDGE HAD THIER SAY. I FELT SO IMPOWERED KNOWING THAT THERE WERE NO SURPRIZES ONLY A FEELING OF "WOW", I HAVE THE RIGHT ATTORNEY REPRESENTING ME ! I HAD NEVER IN ANY TIME IN A COURT OF LAW ACTUALLY WITNESS A JUDGE THAT CLEARLY LOOKED AT THE OTHER SIDE AND SARCASTICALLY RIDICULE THEM THEN, LOOK TO TRACY GREEN AND CALMLY GRANT TRACY THE AUTHORITY TO PROCEED WITH THE CASE AS SHE WAS WELL PREPARED TO DO. I FELT THAT TRACY AND I KNEW EACH OTHER PERSONALLY ALTHOUGH, WE HAD NEVER MET BEFORE THIS CASE. TRACY GREEN HAS REPRESENTED ME IN OTHER CASES EVEN WHEN I WAS NOT PHYSICALLY ABLE TO BE PRESENT IN ORDER TO REPRESENT MYSELF DUE TO INJURIES, AND SHE WON! TRACY IS AN EXTRAORDINARY ATTORNEY! IF THERE WAS A FEE FOR BEING HOSPITABLE, KIND AND TRUTHFUL, EVEN WHEN SOMETIMES WE MAY NOT WANT TO HEAR THE TRUTH, I WOULD GLADLY PAY IT. TRACY SHOOTS STREIGHT FROM THE HIP, NO HOLDS BARED. AGAIN THANK YOU TRACY, MY LIFE IS NOT ALL ICE CREAM AND CAKE BUT, THANKS TO YOU, I AM AT LEAST INVITED TO THE PARTY!

I’m writing in immediate response to a “made-up” defamatory review that was posted to this attorney’s profile. Truly absurd. Anyone who has worked with Tracy Green knows that she is a very gifted and empathetic attorney. In addition to her vast knowledge and professionalism, she is personable and has a keen understanding of people.
In mid 2007 I was involved in a “made-up” crime by a scorned and vindictive ex-girlfriend who was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. Throughout the duration of my case, (and even beyond) she was extremely responsive and thoroughly communicated all the details, leaving me with nothing unanswered. Moreover, Tracy went the extra mile and transformed my dire predicament into a much more favorable/manageable one. She diligently followed through until the end. As the consequences of my situation left me with financial difficulty, she was kind enough to accept payment in the form of a barter arrangement (tennis lessons) that incidentally, she still has not yet fully redeemed.
Once you meet Tracy, it will become very apparent that she’s a top notch attorney and an exceptional person to boot. She always gives all she’s got to her clients, and then some...

Green and associates are the best! They basically saved my profession following a DUI. They helped me with top notch representation to appeal my denial for nursing licensure. I cannot recommend this team enough! Thank you!
Posted by peter, a Administrative Law client, Flag
Tracy Green and her associates handled a case for me with the CA nursing board that was essentially double jepordy. Tracy and her team created a very well designed defence specfic to details of my case. With Tracy's expertise my CA licence is unencumbered.
She personally helped me with another matter in a different state. That help prevented yet another legal entanglement. Tracy had already wrapped up my first case, this secondary help was just from the kindnest of her heart.

Tracy is an exceptional attorney with incredible knowledge in her professional specialty. Her tenacity to do the job and exhaust all the efforts to a final resolve for her clients is quite admirable and rises great respect for her zeal as a professional. She is also very forth coming of her intentions for her plan of action as the case progresses and follows through on all her promises. Clearly a very educated and informative professional.

I have known Ms. Green for the past 6 years. She became my attorney on criminal charges for bank fraud . As hard as it was to deal with the consequences of my actions, having her in my corner was the best thing that could have happened to me ( under the circumstances). I was in denial and was blaming every one but myself for what happened to me. My case was pending before Judge Otero [who is known as a tough sentencing judge]. It was a complicated case. Ms. Green mastered the facts (remembered them better than I did), was creative in coming up with a resolution in getting the loss amounts down significantly and persuading the US Attorney's Office given that they had found incriminating evidence in a search warrant. Ms. Green also cared about me as a person and to help me put this behind me. persuaded me to see a therapist to help me take responsibility and help me deal with the situation I was in. Also this way there would be a record, to help me get into the Residential Drug Alcohol Program (RDAP) which cut a year off my sentence and gave me needed therapy. Ms. Green worked day in and day out to help me take responsibility, work on the best strategy and defense and got me in my opinion, the best possible results on the case. She was available for me when I ever I called her and if she was busy she got back to me as soon as she finished what it is she was doing. If not for Mrs. Green I would have gotten a very long sentence. She continued to take my calls from the camp I went to and that to me was very important. She is caring as well as an amazing attorney.

There is no way this woman is professional licensing attorney as she claims. Her and her staff have proven how poorly they know the medical boards. I hired her and ended up having to speak to her staff 90% of the time because she never returned calls or said she was busy with other cases that were more pressing. She and her staff ignored my case and took months for responses that I ended up being charged further in the criminal courts. Then she assumed I was going to hire her for criminal representation? NO WAY! This firm is a fraud! Advise to Green and Associates...when clients give you paper evidence that clears them of wrong doing then read it!! I've learned a great lesson...there are such things as bad attorneys! Your Firm is the worst!
