About Me

Tracy has a busy and varied practice in all aspects of family law. She is committed to providing realistic advice to a diverse set of clients in a practical, friendly and approachable manner.
Tracy specialises in public and private law children work, in which she represents local authorities, parents, guardians, prospective adopters and grandparents. She has a wide experience of cases involving complex mental health and capacity issues, and has represented parents in both public and private law cases where allegations of physical and sexual abuse have been raised. Tracy is trained in mental health review tribunal work and welcomes cases of this nature.
Tracy is regularly instructed in family injunction proceedings and has gained experience of international children’s law, having represented parents in relocation and child abduction cases. She is available to accept instructions directly from members of the public through the direct access scheme.
Prior to commencing pupillage at Coram Chambers in 2009 Tracy worked in social care for twelve years, and as a psychiatric social worker was approved to carry out assessments under the Mental Health Act 1983.
