Tracey Christine Hopper

About me

          Divorce and other family law matters involve the most important and sensitive aspects of clients’ lives. I bring my extensive social work and family law experience to bear, to educate you about the law and how it applies to your particular circumstances. Then I work with you to evaluate and determine the best strategies for accomplishing your goals and furthering your priorities.


          I love my job.  I enjoy the intellectual challenge of the law.  I find it incredibly satisfying to help people during difficult times in their lives.
