    Ms. Weiss is an exceptional attorney who is well respected in the legal community. I have had the pleasure of litigating against Ms. Weiss, and in every interaction she remained focused on her clients outcome while balancing the composure that is so needed in family law cases. She is skilled at every aspect of litigation, from negotiating a favorable settlement to presenting a compelling case at trial. If you are considering working with Traci, I give my utmost recommendation of her work. Read less

    Traci is unlike so many lawyers I have dealt with. She is professional and caring to her clients. She takes a more personal approach and always got back to me when I had questions. She helped me through the most difficult time of my life and I can never repay her kindness, advice and being there for me. I would recommend Traci to anyone which I cannot say of any of the other lawyers I have ever dealt with. Traci is a shining example of what lawyers should be. Read less
