Tracey represents entrepreneurs, real estate developers, and small and large corporations at both the state, federal, and appellate court level. From real estate practice and tax law to litigation and alternative dispute resolution, her extensive experience serves Bernstein’s clientele with a passionate commitment to both the letter and spirit of the law.
Tracey is also a seasoned tax law researcher and served as a research assistant to Professor Adam Rosenzweig at Northwestern University School of Law. She assisted in the editing of Problems and Materials in Federal Income Taxation (Seventh Edition).

Some of the most contentious legal cases an attorney can handle involve marital dissolution, child custody, and order of protection proceedings. At the firm of Grund & Leavitt PC, one of the nation’s preeminent family law firms, Tracy earned her stripes as an associate attorney. Family law tests a lawyer’s mettle. These complex situations require the most creative of legal situations, judicious of time and money. From asset identification and business valuation to aggressive trial advocacy and deft negotiation, Tracey has been tested inside and outside of the courtroom and that gives Bernstein clients an acute advantage.
