Tracey G. Kagan

Orlando Attorney At Law

 

Upon completing her tenure at the New York Public Defender’s office, Attorney Kagan relocated to the State of Florida where she joined the Seminole County Prosecutor’s office, expanding her scope of experience to include both sides of the law.  Shortly thereafter Attorney Kagan started her own practice where she has been aggressively fighting for and defending the rights of her clients.

While Attorney Kagan still practices Florida Criminal Law, including Drug charges, Trafficking, Burglary, Domestic Violence, DUIs, Juvenile charges, Violations of Probation, and Bond Hearings, her practice has grown over the years to include Traffic Ticket Defense, Orlando Personal Injury Law, and Divorce.

Attorney Kagan’s main office is located in downtown Orlando, just minutes from the courthouse, but she accepts new clients from all over the Central Florida area including Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Brevard, Lake, Polk, and Volusia Counties.

Attorney Kagan’s mission is to work hard to preserve her clients rights, protect their interests, and successfully navigate them through the entire legal process while keeping them informed every step of the way.

Saved my feature
Back in 2009 I was referred by a friend to Tracy to defend me with shopping charge. Being 21 year old, less then a year in this country and not speaking eangish very well, I was not fully aware of consequences that could impact my featured. Tracy got me into Pretrial Diversion program and case resulted with “nolle prosequi” entered upon prorgram completion (which is not considered as a conviction for immigration purposes) She knew exactly what was critical for me when I was not even aware of it. There is no words that can express how greatfull I am. I have a successful career and got my Citizenship successfuly this year. She was very professional, straight to the point, honest and not jujmental. I was not charged any hidden fees and the price was as agreed.

My traffic citations/tichet worries solved by Tracey Kagan!
Tracey Kagan was referred to me by a friend who used her to resolve traffic tickets. I had a car accident and was given a citation. My initial plan was to pay the ticket, but my friend said I should call Tracey first. Tracey took the time to call me and discuss the case (free of charge)and events leading to the ticket in detail before offering advice regarding how to resolve the matter. I decided to hire Tracey Kagan after the free phone consultation. I was able to pay for the retainer with a credit card. Tracey obtained the police report from the accident and again called and discussed everything with me. This saved me from having to drive into Orlando from Seminole County to meet with Tracey. Tracey and I decided to set the matter for a hearing. I was nervous and worried about the hearing, however Tracey came through explaining the process and was there early on the morning of the hearing to meet with me and patiently explain the process to me again. The end result was that my charges were dismissed, I did not have to pay the court costs or fees. I received no points on my license and overall came away from the hearing happy, satisfied, and very grateful to Tracey Gail Kagan.

Thank you, God, and Tracey Kagan, Attorney!
That is exactly what I said when Ms. Kagan's office gave me the good news that my license revocation would be lifted. She had to get not just one, but two traffic tickets reversed, because I was foolish enough not to fight every ticket at the outset. I had previously used a ticket mill to get out of a couple of speeding tickets, but when I contacted them to handle this revocation, they did not get back to me by email or return phone calls for almost a week. Ms. Kagan's office called me right away and got started immediately. It still took a couple of weeks to go through the red tape with the state, so that one-week delay by the first law firm meant I was Ubering everywhere for over a week. One reason I called Ms. Kagan was the amount of information shown on her website about revocation - it was obvious that she knew what she was doing on this. If you are not aware (as I was not), if you forget to pay any ticket, including a toll violation, your license is suspended until you pay and reinstate it. If you get caught 'driving while suspended' 3 times you fall into the Habitual Traffic Offender rules and get an automatic 5-year Revocation. If you don't get a Tracey Kagan to fight it, then it is a year before you can apply for hardship to even drive to work. So take this piece of advice - get Tracey Kagan Law on your team up front!

Great!
Tracey Kagan is great! I hired her to help me with my HTO case. I had 3 tickets, she informed me that we only need 1 to be dismissed to get my license back. She was able to dismiss all 3! There was only 1 upfront attorney fee and that's it. I was able to pay half and she started working on my case right away! The whole process too just infer 4 week and it was painless. Not once did I have to step into a court room or her office! Everything was done via telephone or email. I would recommend anyone to her with their traffic problems.

Exceptional Legal Representation
Ms. Kagan represented me on a complex criminal matter that involved multiple charges. She did an excellent job, kept me informed and provided me with peace of mind and positive results. She and her office staff have both shown they are knowledgeable, professional, and compassionate. An individual referred her to me. I could not have done better.

Excellent attorney
I heard about Tracey while being extradited to Florida. All this guy kept saying was how much he loved his lawyer. I was in need of a lawyer so I had my family reach out to her. She was nice and made my family feel optimistic. The Florida Judicial system was railroading me (I'm from NY) but all started to change after hiring Ms. Kagan. She responded fast regarding my case by filling a bunch of motions. She even had multiple orders of protections dismissed. My cases never went to trail and I was freed. I hired her again and I won without going to trail or being extradited. Her assistant was always available and helpful. In addition, It appeared that Osceola county Judges and clerks acknowledged and respected Tracey. Her fees are fair and she worked with me regarding payments. Tracey appeared to care, worked very hard and most important awarded me justice.

Jetsy was there to ease the load building up. I can not express my greatfullness enough, for the time & energy displayed by them every step of the way. Would I recommend Tracey ? Absolutely.

Very Satisfied Customer
I was involved in a First time DUI and was completely nervous about the situation, Attorney Tracey Kagan made me feel at ease with her experience and knowledge and kept me informed throughout the entire procedure. She was able to help me in my case and with the DMV to obtain a driver's license right away. I was very pleased with the resolution of my case and the professionalism Attorney Kagan and staff used in my case. I wouldn't hesitate to refer my family and/or friends to trust in her work and knowledge in any legal issue that may arise.

Tracey Kagan
Tracey was a great attorney. She handled all my legal issues which ranged from a felony drug charge to a DUI. She handled everything professionally and always did what was in my best intrests. The only negative was that communication at times could use improvement, if you say you will return a phone call, then do it. I would use Tracey again in an instant. She went beyond for me and took care of all my legal issues and I would have no problem using her to handle any future legal issues from speeding tickets on up, hopefully I never have too, lol, but if need be I would not hesitate and hire Tracy again. Thank you Tracey.

Tracey my guardian angel !!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am not to proud to say that in the last couple of years I have gotten my share of speeding tickets and up to date I have no points on my license ( thanks to Tracey ), I have referred friends and family ranging from traffic to Federal Cases with all positive feedback. To my surprise the more complicated the case may be, that's her comfort zone she gets results. I have worked in the past with other Lawyers and at the beginning all sounds good but when you pay up it's a different story, Tracey I can honestly say shoots from the hip till the end. What am trying to say is if you want excellent legal representation look no further otherwise waste your money on fortune tellers, GOOD LUCK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She has to be one of the saints
My son has spent the last twelve years be pursued by our justice system for child support for a child he supposedly conceived at 16. He didn't even know about this child until after he was 18 and because child support had started to pay, after several attempts, the payments could not be contested even with a DNA test. This has affected his license as it was a major issue that caused it to be suspended and, unfortunately, pressure circumstances made him feel forced to violate that suspension through the years whether to make a job interview or try to get sick children to an ER and he would get caught with excessive speed or something else. Each time he became part of the numbers and regardless of the circumstance, the law wouldn't show mercy and heavy fines and probation would be imposed which created more negative financial burdens and appointments that had to be kept which caused more pressure. Through the years, it seemed like something bigger than we could understand was just waiting in the wings to take him down every possible opportunity, but the biggest hindrance was the suspension of his license. How does someone survive, comply with financial penalties, trying to work and have a family life without a license in Florida? It's not like the big cities where there is mass transit. In the past, because he, as well as ourselves, have not been financially strong, different circumstances which had come up threw him into the system of assembly line processing and severe judgement by those who we needed to help him to be able to work so he could pay not only the child support, but to keep his young family from becoming part of the statistics of so many that are suffering right now financially. I'm not sure how we found Tracey as my daughter-in-law called me with her name. When I called, I couldn't possibly give a full history, but in our brief conversation, expressed that he needed someone to understand that his heart was to work and accept his circumstances and all we could hope for was that she could help. Tracey, in my dauther-in-law's words, pulled off a miracle. She must be very trusted and respected among the Orange County legal system as she was able to do something that other attnys not only said most likely wouldn't be able to be done, but she worked with us financially so we could make things happen and compensate her, in a manner that doesn't seem enough for what she did for my son. I hope he is meek enough to recognize what has happened for him and that he runs with this opportunity and completes successfully working with her to get his license back. But, regardless, I want to thank Tracey for taking his case, one that looked pretty hopeless and made him look to be a lost cause. And, for anyone who reads this, please join my family in agreement for Tracey's practice to prosper abundantly to the point of surplus and for her heart being open to give special attention to recognize 'special' cases and people needing that extra chance that only grace and mercy could provide through willing people.

Good Law Team
I received a ticket when a speeding unmarked Orange County Officer darn near side swiped me on the 417. I could tell you all of the detail, but the reality was that I did not want the ticket, did not want to see the "officer" again, and did not want to pay this unconscionable fine. I contacted the offices of Kagan, in Orlando, was represented by Hampton and it was handled. I paid $89 (I had no accidents, no tickets, and carry a commercial drivers license). After the case was dismissed I filed for a refund and it was granted. So, $89 to not have to take the day off of work, not have to drive to Orange County (I live in Brevard), and not to have to see the lying sack who can't drive and hides behind his badge.... I good deal every day of the week. 4 stars since they really don't tell you what is going on. 5 stars overall since they did exactly as they promised to do - make the case go away painlessly and inexpensively without injury to my driving record and automobile insurance. If needed-the first phone call I will be making. Thank you Kagan and Hampton. John_V

She Can't Move Him!
After researching Orlando based Attorneys I decided to go with Tracey. While she talked a good game and I thought we were on the same page she produced absolutely NO results. I had to constantly call her to find out about my loved ones case and progress. After thousands of dollars that I really could of enjoyed instead of contributing to Tracey's lifestyle I would NOT recommend her for ANY case. Unfortunately after 5 months my loved one is still there....

I am not familiar with this case. It is our practice to always return calls and/or emails within a 24 hour period. This practice is strictly adhered to. Feel free to contact our office to discuss any issues you may have.

Child Support
I hired Tracey Kagan for child custody case, when I first met with Tracey she was nice, polite and said she would be there for me but, it wasn't like that at all. When it came to my case she would never return my phone calls. I spoke with her secretary more then Tracey, which was no help. when it came time for mediation she was not on time, which made me look bad in court and she was not prepared with my paper works. I would not recommend Tracey Kagan to anyone, I trusted her with my case and spend hundreds of dollars behind her and i received nothing in return.
