Tracy Rau took on a difficult case for me and she handled it perfectly. The other side didn't know what hit them - she steadily rebutted the opposing counsel's motions and effectively showed all their allegations to be complete nonsense. She did this by focusing on and delivering facts, which naturally exposed the other side's position as whimsical, reckless and irresponsible. Tracy is intelligent, versatile, and very present. She was committed to my case and that was really what I wanted most, someone to stand up for me and she did. When she addressed the court, she commanded the attention of the judge and the opposing counsel. She was entirely thorough in her comprehension of the nuances of my case and her message delivery to the courtroom reflected that awareness. Bottom line: she was ethical and fair as she turned the entire proceeding towards reality and in my favor.

Tracy handled a complicated adoption for me a couple of years ago. The moment she walked into the office and introduced herself she shook my hand with a self assurance that made me feel comfortable immediately. She was always very straight forward with me which I really appreciated. I felt that she cared about my case and was willing to put the time and the effort that it needed. She always returned my calls to her promptly and I never felt as though she was rushing me if I did not understand immediately what was being said or done. She always had a very positive attitude that she would be successful in settling my case but not in a showy or cocky way but in a way that she was very confident that she knew the laws and was confident we would prevail. I felt I was in very good hands very well educated capable hands each time we entered the courtroom. I think she is a wonderful attorney and would not hesitate to retain her again if needed. I just think she is a good all around person who helps to give lawyers a good name. She even sent my daughter and I a bouquet of cookies once our case had been settled which really meant a lot to me. I really cant say enough good things about her she made an extremely difficult situation bearable and I will be forever grateful to her for the time and effort she put into settling my case.

Tracy is one of the smartest and well balanced attorneys we have in family court. She knows the law, is able to negotiate quick and positive settlements and, when that simply isn't possible, zealously advocates for her clients at trial. I highly recommend her!
