Tracy E. Connor

Associate
For Tracy, being a family law attorney means offering her clients candid, supportive counsel and practical solutions to help guide them through difficult periods of their life. She brings a genuine sense of compassion, reasoning and fearlessness to her practice, assuring her clients that with time and the right solutions, their situations will get better. Tracy is a masters-educated social worker, with experience as a family therapist; a high school chemistry and ESL teacher; a community organizer; and an attorney and program manager in energy, disability, veterans, and guardianship and conservatorship law, all while living in 10 different states. However, for her, nothing compares to the on-the-job-learning as a mom, co-parent, and [un]blended-family member when it comes to crafting solutions for her clients. She believes no matter how a family came to be, what it looks like, one’s role(s) in it, or what trouble it has found, with her as an ally, clients will make their way back to the good stuff in life.

Beyond her role as a family law attorney, Tracy is a an inveterate home renovator, a craft beverage snob, and a happily-single mother exploring life with her whizbang kindergartner. Although she secretly wishes she live in a really posh treehouse in an urban forest near a train station in an ancient city center, for now she’s happy that most her days consist of walking around with grout drops on her feet, and gulping down something with caffeine in it.
