Mr. Reeves is from Newnan, Georgia. He graduated from the University of Alabama with a Bachelor’s Degree in both Criminal Justice and Political Science. He then graduated from Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School in 2010 after taking a year off to work at Hawkins, Parnell & Young, LLC in the Asbestos and Products Liability Litigation Divisions.

Tracy began his legal career as an Assistant District Attorney in the Coweta Judicial Circuit. There he helped in establishing the Gang Intelligence Network as well as training prosecutors and law enforcement officers in investigating and prosecuting gang cases. Tracy was also the head of the Coweta Child Protocol that aided in the investigation and prosecution of allegations of child physical and sexual abuse. Tracy then moved to the DeKalb County District Attorney’s Office where he served as a Senior Assistant District Attorney in both the Trial Line Division and the Sexual Exploitation and Crimes Against Children Unit.

Mr. Reeves utilizes this experience to ensure that your rights will be protected in every aspect of your case; from arrest to trial. Capital cases, gang cases and child cases demand specialized skills, training and experience to defend due to the complicated nature of these cases. Mr. Reeves has successfully resolved cases from traffic citations to murder. Every client and case are important to Mr. Reeves and he remains accessible throughout the process.

Best lawyer you could ever get.
He has gone out of his way several times to help for me to understand everything that is going on. His pricing is reasonable he is down-to-earth and hes just a good human being. He is understanding and very unjudgmental. I would highly recommend him for anything you need. He definitely knows what hes doing hes been doing it for a long time.

I’m so glad I hired Mr. Tracy Reeves for my case, I was looking at some serious time for a crime I didn’t comment. I called Mr. Reeves office Monday morning ( I had court Thursday morning of the same week), during the consultation Mr. Reeves gather all the information about my case, developed a plan and went straight to work. Thursday morning we went to court and Tracy Reeves got the case dismissed in 5 minutes! I’m so thankful; now I can continue with my life. Thank you so much Tracy Reeves.

20 STARS! 20 STARS! 20 STARS! Top 40 under 40! Out of tons of research & consulting from other firms, I found Tracy has the most Integrity, moral and ethical standards I’ve seen by far! The relif I felt when I noticed how serious he was about HELPING ME gain answers and solutions for my case & not jus taking advantage of my time & money. I can sleep at night! From being patient while consulting with me & just hearing me vent... while giving me options that I would’ve never dreamed possible! Tracey has tons of experience as a former prosecutor and has stepped into the side of helping others that have made mistakes in the eyes of the law. I feel like anybody who needs actual help needs to do themselves a huge favor and at least give Tracey a try before running to somebody else, promise you will not regret it!! I can’t make this review long enough but God Bless Tracey and everything he does. If you do business with him, know that you are well protected & Blessed beyond measure!!!!

Excellent Attorney who helped a struggling single mom
Mr. Reeves was diligent , helpful and super informative in assisting me with my very difficult child support case. He worked quickly and helped me resolve many issues as well as helping me to complete necessary forms that are confusing for people with no law background. He always answered my questions In a timely manner and I always felt like he was on my side. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney.

Best Attorney in Metro - ATL
Attorney Reeves immediately responded to my desperate search for answers to Legal questions and request for professional guidance and assistance in explaining, drafting, filing and appealing a family court decision that was wrong, unfair and unwarranted on every level. Mr. Reeves represented me with razor sharp skill and was not only immensely knowledgeable and personable; but he was extremely compassionate and focused on making this right for me and my family.

Excellent Attorney
I have used this attorney twice and both times he went far above what I expected. He was able to avoid two years of prison time for a family member convicted with 43 felony charges. My other family members cased was completely dropped. I would not hire anyone but him.

Does not keep appointments
We were assigned Tracy Reeves for a case and we left three voicemails before finally teaching him via email. Then we scheduled a conference call and he did not call us, we scheduled another one and he did not call us on that one. I emailed him again after not getting the call and he didn’t even respond. Not sure why he is on the list on attorney’s for carroll county public defenders if he does not care about the ones who are assigned to him

Took my money did nothing on my case
I paid $3000 with a $5000 retainer and Mr. Reeves did nothing for my case. Very unprofessional withdrew from my case after telling me he would not withdraw and taking another 2k of my money!! Never gave me any information on my case outside of the discovery and showed up to ASL court once in which he was there 5 minutes and continued the hearing for a later date. I am a single mother. I work hard for my money and had some challenges but still paid 3k for Mr. Reeves to do no work on my case. If I would have paid him the entire 5k retainer I would be out of 5k because he withdrew from the case after telling me he would not!! I would not use this attorney ever!
