Biography

As a member of the Trial Division at the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, Mr. Tracy learned from and worked side-by-side with some of the most experienced trial attorneys and prosecutors in the country. This real-world practice helped him to hone his investigation, litigation, and trial skills, which is evident in his perfect felony-trial conviction rate as a prosecutor. While a member of the Trial Division, Mr. Tracy handled every type of criminal case, from DWI, Assault, Grand Larceny, Domestic Violence and Criminal Possession of a Weapon to the most serious crimes including Rape, Sexual Abuse, Attempted Murder and Murder.

Mr. Tracy continued refining his skills as a Deputy Bureau Chief of the Staten Island District Attorney’s Office Domestic Violence Bureau. In that position, he helped to oversee a bureau of over ten prosecutors, making high-level decisions regarding arrest charges, prosecution strategies, and trial assistance. In conjunction with his supervisory roles, Mr. Tracy also handled his own Homicide cases, working on the investigations, indictments, hearings, trials, and dispositions.

Mr. Tracy’s success comes from his ability to work a case from beginning to end. He knows the tactics and strategies prosecutors use to build their cases, can identify their weaknesses, and in turn zealously advocate for his clients. He has built cases from the ground up, conducting long-term and short-term investigations, grand jury presentations, evidentiary hearings, and trials. His reputation in the courtroom speaks for itself, and the relationships he has built with prosecutors, judges and court staff throughout NYC help him to fight for and achieve the best outcome possible for his clients.

Mr. Tracy is admitted to practice law in the New York State courts as well as at the Federal level in the Eastern District of New York. He is a member of the NY State Bar Assoc., Richmond County Bar Assoc. and the NY State Assoc. of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
