Best Lawyer!
I found myself needing to redo a bad custody agreement/order for myself and my three year old son. Tracy Y. Toledo came highly recommended to me both by friends and her online presence. Over the course of a year, Tracy Y. Toledo, showed my family understanding, kindness, and compassion. She has a detailed expertise in matters of child custody law, and had the tact to tell me hard truths in a compassionate way, so that I would understand them. Tracy and her Paralegal Alicia worked tirelessly for the benefit of my family, always putting the needs and welfare of my son above anything else. Unlike other law firms, Tracy is not in the business of law to make money; she does it to help struggling families. Her billing practices are very fair, and she never overbills. She gave detailed instructions on what I needed to do to gather and present all my evidence in a clear and concise way, so the court could see the real picture on what was going on, and she fiercely fought for my family in every mediation meeting we had. Trusting Tracy with my family’s wellbeing has been one of the best decisions I have made, and I will continue to trust her with what is most important to me. I highly recommend anyone who needs child custody lawyer to contact her.

Lawyer with a heart and soul :-)
I reached out to Tracy for my case. She offered me free consultation for 30 mins but we ended up talking for an hour. Based on the call, I can say, she really cared and put herself in my shoes and gave her legal consult. He walked me through various scenarios and she was never pushing me towards hiring her right away. She gave all the possibilities, pros & cons and she left me to decide how should I proceed. After talking to her, it gave me much clarity about my case and I would definitely hire her and recommend her to anybody for family law. Thank you Tracy. You are really an amazing person.

Tracy Toledo is Amazing
Getting divorced is difficult even when you want it. I honestly can’t imagine getting through it without Tracy Toledo’s support and knowledge. She made me feel brave when I thought I’d fall a part. Tracy also provided the hard facts in a simple matter of fact way. I’m sure I asked her the same questions several times but she was patient & kind during the hardest time in my life. Tracy Toledo is a brilliant attorney who will fight for you, but she also has a kind heart.

One of a kind
Ms. Toledo was willing to take the time from her personal life while on vacation to consult me. She answered every question I had even after she knew she would not be able to take my case due to time constraints. I have been talking to an abundance of lawyers for help yet she has been the only one to take the time to truly help me. If I had more time I would have hired her for sure!!!! Thank you!

An attorney with a heart of gold
Tracy, was there for my kids & I during the divorce. She answered all my questions during the day & some times at night. She was there for me during the tears with a box of tissues,a hug & strength to get through it. She knows her job inside and out. She also gave me the tools to help me take a new step in life. She is sure an answer to my prayers. Thank you!!!!!

A neighbor was harassing & making threaten remarks towards me. One day he acted on his threat & I had to go to the hospital due to the injuries that I suffered. I had called several lawyers they said they would only be able to get a two way restraining order because we were neighbors. I had done nothing wrong & did not understand this way of thinking. This man had a criminal record with a history of violence. Tracy Toledo was successful in getting a one way restraining order for me. I found her easy to work with. She truly cares about her clients. Tracy Toledo was the best criminal lawyer ever. She also is now pursuing a civil suit for me.

She treats you like family, not just a client!!!
Theressa and her assistant Mary are just Awesome!!! They worked around the clock to give me the support and information I needed. I never felt like just another case!! They really put my needs first, whether it was filling out and filing paper work, or gathering information, getting back with me on my endless list of questions these ladies made this horrible time a stress free experience. I would highly recommend her to anyone!!

Small business money
he is worth your time . I run a small business and chase money from clients sometimes . I had a clienet that owed me over $4000 and was giving me the run around. Tracy got involved and within 4 months and many tries from the client to delay and dodge her, she got me my money. The entire time she kept me on the loop and lead me every step.

Excellent Attorney!
Theressa was able to help me settle an out of state automobile accident claim, last year, in a quickly manner. She was very knowledgeable and kept me informed on everything. She's very trustworthy and I highly recommend her!
Posted by Chris | February 6, 2013
There with me every step
Theressa was with me every step of the way during my divorce. She provided me with all the information I needed and was there in court with me every step of the way. She didn't see me as a paycheck she actually considered me more of a personal mission to see succeed with a favorable result, and that is indeed what I got. With that kind of motivation and dedication from a lawyer what more could one ask for. I would highly recommend Theressa Toledo any day, anytime, to anyone who needs an attorney that has them in mind and is extremely knowledgeable.

review for Theressa Toledo
Tracy was very helpful and was very knowledgeable. She guided me step by step and mapped everything out for me as to what I was needing to do through my case. She is very relative to her clients and exceedingly organized. I have recommended her in the past and I know those clients, without a doubt would agree with me. Thank you.

Not satisfied
Somewhat helpful but we did all paperwork and still didn’t get what we wanted provided all info for her and it wasn’t even used in court wasn’t satisfied with her efforts to help obtain custody in this case very disappointed
Response from Tracy Toledo December 27, 2018
First of all, we do value our clients and take our reviews very seriously. We always strive to obtain the best outcome for our clients; however, in your case, you came to our office too late and beyond the statutory timeframe which severely limited certain aspects of your case. We did submit all of your paperwork and it was reviewed by the necessary parties. Unfortunately, we simply cannot fix the passage of time but did our best for you given what we had to work with. I would be more than happy to discuss your case moving forward and would also like to discuss the court’s ruling and how it relates to the evidence and the law. We truly look forward to hearing from you! Regards, LAW OFFICE OF TRACY Y. TOLEDO
