Tracey's Story

Tracey is a mom to three daughters: Emma, 23, Sofie, 18, and Stella, 14, all of whom have come up through the Seminole County School system.

One of three sisters herself, Tracey spent her childhood on Long Island, N.Y., and attended Brooklyn Law School, where she received her Juris Doctor degree. She left the chilly north for the sunny skies of Florida, choosing Seminole County for its renowned public schools and natural beauty.  

She started her career as a public defender in New York City, and after moving to Florida worked in the Seminole County State Attorney's office. A successful criminal defense attorney for the past 20 years, Tracey has represented thousands of people and is in the courts every day ensuring that the rights of all Floridians are protected. Tracey’s expertise with the criminal justice system has given her an understanding of the challenges faced by law enforcement, social workers, mental health professionals and all those who are working to improve our community.  


"I come from a family of strong women. I'm one of three sisters, and I'm raising three daughters of my own. My mother, Janice, has taught all of us to fight for what's right."
