Pamela M. Tracy
Pamela Tracy grew up in Westland, Michigan, the daughter of an engineer father and a stay-at-home mother. Pamela is the oldest of three children. Her parents are still happily married and were a great example of the importance of working together and compromise. Pamela has always had a propensity for helping others and arguing passionately for those who cannot argue for themselves. At age eleven, Pamela decided that she could best help others by becoming an attorney and since that day, she never faltered in her career path.
Pamela has been practicing family law, almost exclusively, since 2001. Although Pamela loves family law and always felt like she was very understanding of her clients’ situations, it wasn’t until she went through her own divorce, after fifteen years of marriage and four children, that she truly understood the emotional and economic impact of divorce. Pamela truly understands the difficulty, as well as the importance, of learning to co-parent after divorce. More importantly, she understands that the needs of children must outweigh the bitterness and resentment that can occur between divorcing spouses. Pamela’s knowledge of family law and her own personal experiences help her clients navigate a tough period in their lives with empathy and a true understanding of the emotional and financial difficulties they may be facing.
In her free time, Pamela enjoys spending time with her adult children and her teenage son. She enjoys hanging out with family and friends and impromptu get-togethers. She enjoys traveling and having new experiences and making memories.
Pamela graduated from the University of Michigan earning a B.A. in Political Science and a B.A. in Sociology with Honors. She then attended Detroit College of Law at Michigan State University, where she earned valuable experience as a research clerk for one of her professors.
