Tracey L. Perrick
Tracey L. Perrick joined McCabe Russell in December 2018 as Senior Counsel. She brings to the firm many years of experience as a family law attorney and litigator. As part of the McCabe Russell team, she will handle domestic matters including divorce, custody, child support, domestic violence, property settlement, alimony, post-judgment issues, and prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.
Tracey believes each client and each case deserves time, attention and an understanding of the unique family dynamics at play.
