Dependable, Trustworthy, Aggressive, Professional!!!
My husband and I were in need of a more dependable lawyer for a custody/visitation battle for our son. Our originally hired lawyer was impossible to get in touch with, wouldn't return emails or voicemails for days, cancelled meetings with us and provided a paralegal instead, and showed up only five minutes before our ex parte child custody hearing when we were understandably nervous and stressed.
Our experience with Tracey has been the exact opposite. During the initial consultation she immediately put us at ease and gained our confidence. She obtained all possible information from us in regards to the case and reviewed all of the documentation from our previous hearing and resulting stipulation. In less than a week she accomplished more, provided us with additional options and strategies, and made us feel better prepared for such an important and life-altering hearing as the custody and visitation with our son than our previous lawyer did in two months.
She punctually arrived at court the day of the hearing dressed professionally and met us in the parking lot to brief us and accompany us in to the courthouse. This went a long way towards calming our nerves and giving us the confidence to face the opposing counsel. She situated us comfortably and then checked in with the bailiff for us. She then chauffeured us in to the gallery ahead of everyone else that was checking in affording us the time to regroup and center before our case was called. She kept us well informed throughout the day and met with opposing counsel to negotiate possibly the best visitation, custody, and move away orders achievable.
We are beyond thrilled with the outcome of the hearing and now have additional time with our son that is firm and precise down to the day and hour leaving nothing open to misinterpretation. Tracey even procured for us additional visitation and technological (Skype, Facetime etc.) communication orders so that we can be confident that when we move out of state (active duty military family that is transferring across the country) my husband, myself, and our son and daughters will have solid, ongoing communication with their brother that is so important for siblings and was not previously being accomplished due to parental alienation issues.
Tracey was an absolute godsend and followed up with us after the hearing to make sure we were satisfied with the services she provided. Custody and visitation matters are highly stressful and full of emotion. Being an active duty military family we felt at a severe disadvantage in the family law system since most of our family, friends, and support base live in an entirely different state. It is a forlorn experience to show up at court with just your husband when our son's mother had an entire entourage to display. With Tracey, we felt like we finally had someone on our side to be our voice and fight for our rights and our sons right to have a relationship with his father, myself, and his siblings. I would recommend her to anyone going through the heartbreaking and earth shattering struggle of a visitation and custody battle or fighting to be in the life of their child. She was unparalleled in her professionalism, aggressive in fighting for our rights, and compassionate and empathetic to our situation. We will forever be grateful to her and are so fortunate to have had her represent us.
