As an estate litigator, Tracey has been involved in many types of estate litigation matters during her career. Some of them include will challenge matters, testator capacity matters, power of attorney disputes, removal of estate trustees and many others. Her approach to litigation is suited for the often emotional and difficult nature of estate disputes.
Prior to joining Devry Smith Frank LLP (DSF), Tracey achieved her B.A. in Psychology from McMaster University, B.A. in Political Science from the University of Toronto and J.D. from Osgoode Hall Law School. She was called to the Bar in 2004 and practised law at a Bay Street law firm prior to moving to a large regional firm in Barrie where she worked for 7 years before opening a boutique law firm where she has worked for the last 4 years. Tracey brings exceptional wills, trusts and estate planning, estate litigation, consent and capacity law, not-for-profit and charity law, and general corporate law expertise to DSF.
Tracey’s practice is focused on estate planning, estate administration, estate litigation and consent and capacity litigation. She is also highly skilled in types of disputes that involve an estate trustee or executor, having defended both sides and brought actions against them on behalf of one or more beneficiaries.
Tracey spends her limited free time outside of the office being both a hockey mom and a swim mom for her two daughters. Occasionally, she has interests of her own such as reading, running and hockey.
She also serves on the Board of Directors for the North Simcoe Girls Hockey Association and participates in pro bono work in the area of elder abuse.
