About Tracy

Practice areas
  1. Trucking accident
    Trucking accidents usually cause serious injuries. You need a serious lawyer on your side. You also need help quickly because the truck driver and company could destroy log books and evidence that will help you.

    30 years, 300 cases

  2. Car accident
    If you’ve been in a car wreck you have a lot of questions: what about my car? What about my medical bills? Can I trust the insurance company? I answer these questions and more and aggressively help car wreck victims in AL, FL and GA.

    30 years, 1,500 cases

  3. Personal injury
    Since 1994 I have helped countless people with injury and accident claims. I have tried numerous trials and handled cases in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Kansas, Arizona, Illinois and Connecticut.

    30 years, 1,200 cases

  4. Wrongful death
    Over the course of my career, I have been honored to serve the families of many people who suffered fatal injuries due to a defective product or the negligent act of someone else.

    30 years, 150 cases

  5. Workers compensation
    I help people with job related accidents in Alabama and Georgia.

    30 years, 1,400 cases

  6. Lawsuits and disputes

    30 years, 150 cases

Getting great results for injured people is my passion and mission in life.  No case is too large or small.  Every client is very important to me.  I will zealously represent you with all my energy to see your case through to a successful conclusion, no matter how long it takes or how far we have to go.  I'm licensed in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and the District of Columbia.  In addition, I have represented clients in Connecticut, Kansas, Illinois and Arizona.  

In my practice as a lawyer since 1994, I have only represented injured people. I don't defend insurance companies and I never have.   I am very passionate about my work for my clients.  Before I started my legal career, I was privileged to serve on active duty as an officer in the United States Army. I was a field artillery officer in the Big Red One (1st Infantry Division).  Later, during law school and beyond, I served in the Army National Guard. After I took the bar exam, I became an Army lawyer (a JAGC officer) in the Alabama National Guard.

On a personal note, just a little about me: I am the proud father of four children, three daughters and a son.  I've been married to a wonderful lady for more than 34 years and we have three awesome grandchildren and another on the way! When I'm not working for my clients, I enjoy travel, reading and I sometimes play bass guitar in my church praise band.   I love following my favorite sports teams.  So far, I've traveled to all 50 states, 19 countries and 27 different Major League Baseball stadiums.

No representation is made that the qualify of legal sevices to be performed is greater than the legal services provided by other attorneys.

Over my right shoulder is a World War I era photograph of a 1st Infantry Division (Big Red One) artillery unit.  It’s a reminder of my service and of that of the brave men and women who have served our country to guarantee our freedom.

Tracy KARI- represented me in a Workman’s Comp. case. With his expertise, he was able to get me a settlement that was $10,000 MORE- than I thought I was going to get. He listens, he knows his stuff – and he’s a great attorney!

Very professional and understanding.
Mr. Cary represented me after a car accident I was in. I was hesitant at first because I had never had to hire a lawyer for something like this before. Mr. Cary and the staff were so kind, understanding and helpful. I emailed him quite often during this process and he was always very quick with a reply. I would HIGHLY recommend him!

Mrs. Countryman
Attorney Cary is a man of integrity, morals, and a genuine concern for his clients. His objective is to make sure that you're taken care of due to the negligence of the other party. He was very understanding and resourceful for the betterment of my health. I'd advise anybody to utilize his services. Speaking to him Alone will make you feel like someone cares about your circumstances and what it is you need for an outcome due to your injuries. He's honest and will always communicate with you. You will never have to wonder how your case is proceeding because he will constantly keep you updated. He would call just to ask how was feeling . I'm truly happy that I chose him to represent me.

Very pleased
When my husband and I first decided that legal representation was our next course of action I was apprehensive. At face value the entire process seemed overwhelming and I had no desire to immerse myself in attempting to figure it out on my own. We met with Mr.Cary and by the end of our meeting we had singed the necessary paperwork and my mind was completely at ease. Tracy Cary is the type of person you hope to do business with. He is knowledgeable and he has always responded very quickly to any and all questions we had during the process. If you find yourself reading reviews save yourself time and trouble, contact Tracy Cary today. You will not regret it.

The best in the Wiregrass
I am a client of Tracy Cary and he represented me when I was not injured physically, but also emotionally and financially. He takes the time to know his clients understand the case and get the facts laid out in a clear concise manner. Having Mr. Cary by your side throughout a stressful and deciding point in your life is the best decision you could make when choosing an attorney.

More than representation
I am extremely satisfied with Tracy and his office. My fiance and I were in a terrible accident, and we consulted with Tracey on our case. We felt that he would be good representation for us and we hired his firm. Since that time there have been numerous issues other than the case that he has continued to help us with. As of now our case is not yet resolved but he continues to work diligently to make us as close to whole as we once were. I would recommend Tracey Carrie and his Law Firm to anyone that needs legal advice or representation.

Personal injury.
Mr. Cary, has been truly wonderful, not only was he very professional, Mr. Cary also cared about my recovery of 4 surgeries from a work injury. I consultanted Mr. Cary when I was denied medical treatment from workman's comp from my employer. When ever I had questions or concerns Mr. Cary and the staff was very friendly and helpful, no matter the situation or issues they handled it quickly. Mr. Cary made my first experience with an attorney or any kind of legal experience less stressful on my self. Mr. Cary took away any kind of worry I had and allowed me to recover with no worries.

Thank you so much for taking on my case, I highly recommend you to anyone in need of a great lawyer !
Mr. Tracy Cary took on my case , and handled it quickly, and most efficiently. He had our case dismissed, when I was in a terrible automotive lawsuit, it was devastating to my family. Because we didn't have the funds to pay it. I was afraid of the whole court thing, but he told me to let him do the worrying. Thank you so much, I would highly recommend Tracy Cary to anyone !

Best in town!
I've known Tracy Cary for many years, and anytime we've unfortunately had a legal issue to address, Tracy is the go to man. He is a good Christian man, a man of integrity and excellent in his profession. He represented my daughter in an automobile accident case, his communication skills are unmatched and there is no one else I would have trusted to take care of my daughter through such an ordeal. Tracy is the type of person that you can count on to be there and that's what you need to know when you're dealing with legal matters--that you have someone dependable, trustworthy and hardworking. I'm grateful to have such a professional in our community. I highly recommend this Lawyer.

Tracy Cary: a man of integrity, intelligence and compassion
Tracy is one of the most genuine, caring, and driven people I have ever met. I was not very comfortable and knowledgeable about workers comp and filing a lawsuit. He was not only with me every step of the way, he was the best advocate one could hope for. I never wanted to be in a position where I needed an attorney, but due to the circumstances of my accident I needed one. Hiring Tracy Cary was the best attorney I could have hoped for. I am beyond grateful for every thing he has done for me, and I highly recommend him to anyone!

Tracy Carey
Mr. Carey has been helping me with this case, workman's comp, for over 2 years now. I am so very thankful that he has been there on this journey. But not only him but his wonderful staff as well. When I've needed an answer to a question he has been there, if I've needed my hand held his staff has been there. Thank you all so very much. God Bless.

Tracy Cary
I asked Tracy to help me with an on the job injury case. We are still pending since MMI has not been reached. Tracy is not only very knowledgeable about Workers' Compensation law, but is truly a caring person.
Posted by Joseph | August 10, 2012
Mr Cary is very good at keeping me informed by email and then mails a writen copy. He is very clear when he explains things and is alway early for appointments. He never leads me on he very to the point. Because I am in another state he always keep expences down like driving insted of flight. I noted in a depersision he was very knowledgeable what could be allowed and what not. I am very happy with his service.

Personal injury Attorney | Apr 26
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I worked with Tracy on a personal injury case which initially seemed hopeless for the victim. Over the course of several years, Tracy's hard work and perseverance resulted in a large jury award for the victim, and then Tracy and his firm continued to defend the verdict throughout the lengthy appeals process. Ultimately, the award was upheld and the victim was compensated, but other lawyers would have given up long before Tracy. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who has suffered a loss or injury through no fault of their own."

Personal injury Attorney | Nov 02
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Let me tell you about Tracy Carey. Tracy and I met in a case where we represented different clients, who unfortunately were both hurt by the same drunk driver. The Court consolidated the cases of his client and mine for the entire proceedings, including discovery, depositions, and trial. By doing so, I had the opportunity to see Tracy handle a serious injury case, from start to finish. He proved to have amazing tenacity, original strategy, and a work ethic that was was beyond impressive. It was a real pleasure to work with a professional like this. To make a long story short, at the end of closing arguments, and a week long trial, the Geneva County jury returned a $3.8 MILLION dollar verdict in favor of our joint clients. I consider it an honor to know him now, not only as a hard working, practicing attorney, but as a friend. I wholly endorse this attorney."
