Tracey represents employers in all aspects of employment and civil rights litigation, with a focus on Rule 23 class actions and defending collective action claims under the Fair Labor Standards Act. Tracey also particularly enjoys litigating individual employment discrimination claims in a cost-effective, summary judgment-focused manner that regularly results in dismissal of the claims before trial. She has been recognized as a Georgia “Super Lawyer” in Labor and Employment since 2008 and is listed in Chambers USA, America’s Leading Lawyers for Business.
During law school, Tracey was a managing editor of The Ohio State Law Review and a member of the Order of the Coif. Tracey also worked as a judicial clerk for the Hon. Richard C. Freeman, U.S. District Court Judge, Northern District of Georgia and continues to rely on insights from that experience in her practice today.
