Tracy McNeill Pullan graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology from the University of Texas, Austin in 1999. After working and travelling abroad, she made a life changing decision to follow a long family tradition of becoming a lawyer. She attended the University of Houston Law Center. Much like her great grandfather Frank B. Potter, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas, she found herself called to public service and accepted a job with the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office as an Assistant District Attorney (ADA.)
While serving as an ADA, she spend time in the Justice of the Peace, Misdemeanor, and Felony divisions where she gained valuable insight into the inner-workings of the Montgomery County criminal justice system. Ms. Pullan was selected to act as Chief of the Misdemeanor Division, managing and training prosecutors in their prospective courts. She gave specific training on Driving While Intoxicated cases, and worked closely with law enforcement by aiding in their training in the field.
Ms. Pullan tried over 50 trials as a Prosecutor, ranging from Capital Murder to Class C Misdemeanors. Additionally, she reviewed and investigated thousands of cases on behalf of the State of Texas. After six years of service, Ms. Pullan left the office under the title of Division Chief.
Ms. Pullan was a founding partner of Maginnis Pullan & Young, P.L.L.C. In April of 2016, Patty Maginnis was elected as Judge of the 435th District Court. Ms. Pullan and Mr. Young continue in their carreers to compassionately and aggressively defend those accused of crimes in Montgomery County, Texas by forming Pullan & Young, P.L.L.C. Ms. Pullan has defended all types and levels of criminal offenses ranging from DWIs to Aggravated Assaults. She has protected falsely accused clients from becoming registered sex offenders, and fights tirelessly to protect the records of young clients from having a permanent criminal record. No matter the type of case, Ms. Pullan will defend that person to the fullest extent.
Due to her training and experience as a Prosecutor, combined with the relationships she has forged with Judges and Prosecutors alike, she has been able to achieve tremendous results for her clients. Her strongest attributes are her strong work ethic, her ability to simplify complicated issues, and her deep rooted believe in justice.

As a former prosecutor, I'll say that Tracy was one of the most frustrating attorneys I ever tried a case against. In the legal field, this is a compliment! She's good at her job and knowledgeable about all aspects of criminal law.
