Tracy is a life saver!
Tracy is quite literally, a life saver. She is highly knowledgeable of our laws and does a wonderful job of communicating their proper interpretations with the client. Tracy clearly has an excellent working relationship with the court. I was facing baseless accusations of violating a protection order, she was able to provide swift resolution in getting my cases completely dismissed.

Efficient and expert service
Tracy has handled more than a couple traffic tickets for me over the years. She is an expert at navigating municipal courts in multiple counties, prompt with communication and solutions, and the consummate professional in the courtroom. I wouldn't choose anyone else and recommend her exclusively.
