    35 years

My practice concentrates on representing individual and business debtors, creditors (both secured and unsecured), and Receivers  in cases filed under all chapters of the Bankruptcy Code and in the Washington Courts using the state receivership process.

I have twenty seven years of significant bankruptcy experience.  Before founding my own firm, I was Of Counsel and President of Crocker Law Group PLLC/Resolve Legal PLLC.  Prior to that, I was a partner at Ogden Murphy Wallace PLLC.  I began my legal career as a law clerk to the Honorable Samuel J. Steiner, United States Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Washington.  

 I am a frequent speaker at continguing legal education programs on Receiverships and individual chapter 11 cases.  In 2007 and 2008, I was invited to present at the Conference of Chief Bankruptcy Judges for the Ninth Circuit and the NInth Circuit Judicial Conference on consumer bankruptcy issues.

Had a very productive brief chat about business bankruptcy case
Todd was helpful and informative when we spoke about a case in which I was a contractor and my client filed bankruptcy before paying me.

Todd Tracy is an excellent Bankruptcy Attorney
Mr. Tracy did a very complex Chapter 7 bankruptcy for both our business and personal finances. He and his assistant were always available for questions. Mr. Tracy is well respected by the Bankruptcy Trustees, knows exactly how to present to them in court, and made what could have been a very painful process much easier than expected. I would highly recommend using his services. He is very knowledgable, a pleasant guy to work with and best of all does an excellent job.

Client
Todd did a complex joint personal and corporate chap 11 for me along with his firm, Crocker/Kuno. I can not say enough about his incredible knowledge of the law and his ability to communicate that in language that a layman can understand. He is thorough, efficient and always ready and willing to assist in any way that he can. Todd is ALWAYS cheerful and positive, yet very realistic. No one ever wants to go through this kind of experience, but I highly recommend him to anyone who needs this kind of service.
