Tracy Rhodes

Tracy RhodesTracy Rhodes loves practicing law and is a thought-leader and educator in family law and real estate litigation. An experienced litigator and trial attorney, Tracy is an assertive advocate for her clients. She has tried cases throughout North Georgia and Metro Atlanta before judges and juries on issues ranging from divorce, child custody, boundary line disputes, property interests and land titles, and contested probate estates. On why she chose to specialize in family law and real estate litigation, Tracy says:

“I love helping my clients work through real-life, everyday legal issues. My practice brings me to heart of what matters most in my clients’ lives: the families they’ve created and the wealth and property they’ve attained.”

Tracy Rhodes represents her clients in over 15 Georgia counties and courts including Cobb, Bartow, Carroll, Cherokee, Forsyth, Paulding, and Fulton. She is also regularly appointed by Cobb County Superior Court judges to serve as a Special Master in title litigation cases.

When not in court or otherwise helping her clients resolve their cases, she enjoys speaking to other groups of lawyers and sharing her expertise. Tracy and her husband (also a lawyer) devote time each August to speaking about professionalism and ethics with new law students at the University of Georgia. She is also an enthusiastic volunteer, dedicating her time to various non-profit organizations including Atlanta Moms Making a Difference and Forever Family.

Tracy grew up on a family farm in Taylorsville, Georgia. Now, Tracy, her husband, and their two daughters live in Marietta. They attend St. Joseph Catholic Church. In her leisure time, Tracy enjoys yoga, running, biking, and UGA football.
