Excellent in all aspects!
Deborah handled my divorce, and was always there for me. Do I need to explain a divorce? They can get ugly, however Deborah made the experience more palatable than I could have imagined. I HIGHLY recommend her services.

Phenomenal Attorney!
Mrs. Tracht is the best! I came to her after dealing with an attorney previously who was dishonest and took advantage of me. I wish I had found her first. She is so well versed, professional and full of integrity. I feel safe and confident in my case for the first time in years. I cannot recommend this firm or Mrs. Tracht more highly!

Serenity and Confidence all in one!
Deborah Tracht was highly recommended to me by Bruce Berger's Forensic Accountant Team. Prior to the recommendation, I had a very negative experience with a former attorney I had retained for my divorce which cost me a lot of money leaving me with zero results at my preliminary hearing. Deborah was very responsive with my time sensitive case which at the critical time, was lost by my former attorney. Within minutes, she made it clear as to the shortfalls of my former attorney and the inability to meeting my needs in my divorce case. I found myself sitting across the desk of a true professional attorney, empathetic, great communicator, beautiful person inside and out. By the time I left her, I knew I had a true winner in my corner representing me. For the first time in many months, I felt confident and assured. Deborah's personal touch allowed the pain of my divorce to soften. All of this ended with outstanding results. I highly recommend Deborah and her wonderful assistant Virginia for any legal challenges you may find yourself in. Deborah has great tenacity and focus that produces great results.

Intelligent, Professional and Caring
My daughter was involved in a vicious custody fight and was close to loosing her son, due to what was a corrupt system on many levels at the time. We hired Deborah after firing a previous lawyer. Deborah fought everything the other side threw at her with professionalism and a determination to win and she was a support system to our family with her positive attitude. She was a light during a very dark time, and because of her my daughter never lost her son, and today he is a brilliant and thriving 8 yr. old.

Top Shelf Representation and Staff
If I could give 10 stars I would. Deborah knows family law like I know how to tie my shoes. She took my very messy case over after I screwed it up on my own and turned into a settlement that I never dreamed possible. Yes I said settlement that means NO TRIAL. Deborah knows the Broward county court system like the back of her hand. Judges, Magistrates, Opposing Counsel, Mediators, Forensic Accounting, etc. she has all the tools to get you what you deserve. Yes this is a difficult time and she has compassion. Yes this is a frustrating time and she has a calming disposition that will cool a parking lot's asphalt on a hot august summer in south Florida. Yes it is confusing to us but she knows what, when and how to do it all, just do yourself a favor and listen to her. Finally she is TENACIOUS when she smells injustice. Be careful, she may tell you to shut up sometimes but listen to her its for your own good; it helped me a lot. Her office staff is AWESOME! and soon you feel like family. You will be interfacing with them most of the time and they are excellent communicators and pay attention to the most minuet details you never knew existed. Motions, pleadings, hearings, subpoenas, etc.. all filed in a timely fashion and communicated to the client without hesitation. The assistance I received from her staff getting my financials in order was like a gift from god. Someone always answers the phone and always greets you with a pleasant smile and kind word when you walk into the office. There were no overlapping appointments and I was the only client in the office when we had appointments. Not once did I ever have to wait in the office to get down to business. What else can I say - I'm the happiest I have been in 3 years and I owe it to Deborah and her family. If you would like to speak to me directly about my experience I will be more than happy to discuss over the phone. Just call her office and ask one of the family members to contact me for a referral and we will be in touch.

So amazing
Deborah and her team are some of the best in this business. Through out this whole process i felt at ease and knowing that Deborah and her team were the best. Deborah was able to structure a deal in mediation that fit all of my needs for my family. She did it in a way that my ex and I both felt we won. The sense of relief I have because of Deborah and her team can't be put in words. Because of how great Deborah is I am able to spend the quality time with my two boys and you can't put a price on that!!!

Thank you for believing in us Deb..
Deborah isn't a ruthless, heartless attorney. However she is highly experienced and is always armed with facts while leaving the other attorneys flat on their feet. This was one of the most emotionally charged experiences of my life. Deborah and her staff, always had time to pull me off the mountain top and get me centered, when the fears started caving in all around me. She showed my 9 year old little girl NOTHING but love and understanding through the year it took to fix the mess we had found ourselves in. To this day, though Deborah has had to get through some heart breaking issues in her own personal life. We still keep in touch. I nor my daughter will ever forget the kindness she showed us and the depth of professionalism she carried into our personal lives and into the court room... Deborah is always highly recommended by me...

Saved my beautiful daughter!
What an outstanding, professional, and compassionate lawyer with such a dedicated staff. First class all the way and willing to fight for what is right! She went above and beyond her responsibilities and really worked her staff beyond normal business hours to handle my emergency child custody case which she successfully completed. She also succeeded to have me granted permanent custody once my divorce was finalized, and saved my baby from having to endure anymore hardships or abuse with her mom. Our client relationship did not end after my case was completed and she routinely checks on me and my daughter and has to this day been a great mentor legally. When I went to Fort Lauderdale I did not want a cut rate lawyer, I wanted the best! She was it,! You truly, truly get what you pay for and she and her beautiful staff were worth every single penny!

uncontested divorce case
Deborah and her staff were very helpful and compassionate. She walked me through what i would need and what to expect. she advised what was in my best interest. I also went through a period where i thought my spouse and i would reconcile,. i never felt pressure from her to finalize the divorce. she allowed me to take my time. The whole process went smoothly. we ended up divorced, but she always respected my request to treat my husband kindly as this was a very amicable process. so much in fact, we are both going to have her draw up new wills.

Excellent attorney willing to go the extra mile !!
We used Mrs. Bianchi Tracht for a complicated divorce settlement that involved a large amount of assets and liabilities to be divided. Mrs. Tracht worked diligently to resolve this case through mediation but was unable to do so due to the lack of cooperation from the other party. The case took over two years, but Deborah and her excellent support staff never gave up. They were very professional, understanding and patient through the entire process. Deborah and staff came well prepared to litigate the case on the day of the trial. On the day of hearing Mrs. Tracht was able to work out a settlement with opposing counsel and avoid a two day trial. I feel the negotiations were successful due to Mrs. Tracht’s excellent skills and never give up attitude. I would highly recommend Deborah Bianchi Tracht and her “team” of professionals.

Simply Amazing
I came to Deborah Bianchi Tracht's office pregnant, alone and scared. I came to her on a timesharing matter after being abused by my son's father and was terrified of what might happen to me and my children. I knew very little about family law, I only knew I couldn't face this man or the court system alone. I went in looking for a lawyer, I now have an ally, a champion and most importantly a protector for myself and my 2 little sons. Deborah is not only a brilliant attorney, she is ethical, and above all kind. She has been and continues to be by my side through many a courtroom battles and not only do I feel safe - I know that she has my family's best interest at heart. Deborah has been fighting relentlessly on my behalf and the outcome so far has been AMAZING. Her presence in the courtroom is undeniable and her knowledge of the law is impressive to say the least. Not only has the legal aspect of my fight been more than I could have hoped for but I have learned so much from her on a personal level. I can say that thanks to her I am no longer scared, instead I am a much more confident stronger, woman than I ever was. To anyone reading this - Mother, Father, Wife, Husband - going through ANY kind of family issue where you need representation, Deborah Bianchi Tracht is everything a lawyer SHOULD be and a RARE ROSE IN A PROFESSION FULL OF THORNS.

AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME
Mrs. Tracht is a truly outstanding attorney. She is one of a kind. I recommend her to anyone who is looking for a lawyer because she does above and beyond what's necessary to give her clients and their family a sense of safety and peace of mind. I have complete faith in her ability to represent me and I encourage others to have faith in her when they hire her to represent them. She handles things with the up most professionalism and absolute understanding of the law.

Demonstrates conscience and moral goodness!
It's almost impossible to find an attorney that gets the job done but will not compromise to some extent when it requires doing the right thing, especially when it comes down to money. Deborah is a rare find in her field! She is skilled and more than qualified at what she does and as a bonus she is a decent and compassionate human being. In addition to handling my case and doing what she gets paid to do, she has gone above and beyond what's necessary to give me and my children a sense of safety and peace of mind, which no amount of money can buy. I have complete faith in her ability to represent me, but what's more, I know I'm dealing with a person of high moral standards and a heart of gold. If anyone is looking for an attorney that not only gets the job done but also remembers she is dealing with peoples' lives and totally embraces and defends that, then look no further, Deborah Bianchi- Tracht is the attorney you need to handle your issue. I’m recommending that she be featured on this website. Attorneys everywhere can stand to learn a few things from her, and people looking for an attorney need to know more about her. I highly recommend her without hesitation. If you want excellent representation combined with genuine kindness and support, you’ve come to the right place.

Excellent Attorney who absolutely gets the job done!
I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Tracht for help with child support issues on two separate cases, it was the best decision I made retaining her. She handled things with the up most professionalism and absolute understanding of the law. Not only did I have full confidence in her ability to get me the desired outcome, but I also knew I had an advocate, someone to protect me, my rights and fight for me. Ms. Tracht is not only a skilled attorney who does her job very well; she's also an extremely compassionate and caring person. She always made me feel like I was a priority and was available to listen and help me with any questions I had. Her office staff is wonderful too, forever accommodating and helpful. I always got my calls returned in a timely manner and never had to ask about the standing of things. She and her staff kept me constantly updated on the status of my cases. Her fees are also reasonable compared to most attorneys in her area of practice, but regardless of what she charges, she is WORTH EVERY PENNY! I highly and with total confidence recommend her to anyone who needs an attorney. She's competent and fights for her clients, and she WINS!

Save yourself the misery - Retain Deborah and you won't regret it!! She is "THE BEST!" PERIOD.
Let me start by thanking Deborah and her team for a great work they have done. Before I visited Deborah for an initial consultation I was slightly hesitant, but after much thought I decided to meet her despite of her fees and her office being very far from my residence. I was awstruck by her pleasing personality and the care I sensed in her words, it was then I decided that noone but her I had to retain, and words cannot justify enough that it was the right decision I took. Deborah has seen me go through the painful tears and has been there to guide me, and I know, she will always be a part of my life. I just LOVE her! If you have ended up at AVVO.com or Google review page looking for Ms. Deborah Bianchi Tracht, trust all the positive reviews. We all have been there, dealt with it all, but without Deborah it woud have been difficult. Retain her!! You will NOT regret!! For her, we are not just Client IDs' rather humans with heart.

Amazing Attorney!
I had an incredibly complicated custody dispute that crossed international lines and Deborah was relentless at cutting through the nonsense and helping me regain full custody of my son. She never made false promises and always did exactly what she said she would do. I am still in awe of her courtroom demeanor. She is efficient and incredibly effective, I wasnt sure at first if I could afford representation of her caliber but I am so thankful I went with her because she has given me more than I thought a Father was allowed to hope for. Do not take a chance with a discount lawyer, nothing is more important that your child.

Deborah Tracht .. Money spent on Best Attorney of her kind
I was amazed at the overall presence of Deborah and her team. They were so professional and courteous. Always making themselves so available to answer questions to help through the process. Child custody is very emotional and anxious however the focus must always be the child and they do that. I am here to say that my mind was blown away! Deborah makes things happen that people tell you just do not happen in the family courts. Usual outcomes of custody cases are in favor of the mother but Im here to tell any man who never put the money out because he thought the odds were against him due to gender, those days are gone! Take a chance if you are a father who truly believes the best interest of your child is to be with you..Stand Up and let Deborah help you she is worth every bit and then some..She knows the law and the games people play to "win" custody for their own gain and she is well prepared for all of it!! Best Investment ever made and we were truly blessed with the results from mediation and we will be retaining her for our re-mediation when it comes around and we have every confidence shes going to devote the same efforts as before. Thank you Deborah and your staff for allowing me to quit paying these other attorneys who overpromised and undelivered and believing in our side and presenting the crucial evidence that gained us INTERSTATE joint custody on 9 month old baby girl. Dont think it couldve gone any better. Looking forward to working with you and your staff again school year time!

I couldn't have done it with out her!!
Deborah and her staff go above and beyond their call of duty! I hired Deborah to handle my child support case over a year ago. As with all family law the process can be extremely emotional and in my case heartbreaking. I swear she felt my pain and in turn, her passion fired!! Her knowledge of the law is limitless, and she is a FIGHTER! I mean FIGHTER!!! I was up against a man who makes a lot of money and his entire attorney team. She was perfect! I travel from WA state, and I cried when I left her my last trip. She made the law make sense to me so I understood my rights and I was able to make the right decision for myself and my daughters. She was just what I needed for my case, but mostly I feel blessed to have been able to get to know her and her AH MAZING staff!
