Tracey L. Jennings understands that legal matters can take a considerable toll on her clients and their families. Because of that, Tracey values the personal relationships she develops with her clients. By getting to know her clients individually, Tracey can better communicate with her clients to learn their values and goals, educate them on the legal process and the personal effects it can have on people, and provide the emotional support needed during difficult times. At the same time, Tracey possesses the skills and experience to be a fierce advocate for your rights. This combination of compassion and advocacy enables Tracey to develop a personal relationship with her clients and provide competent legal advocacy.
Estate Planning and Administration
Using her emphasis on good client relations as a guide, Tracey provides comprehensive estate planning services to ensure your needs are met. Before drafting a will or trust, she will discuss your wishes to ensure your property is distributed as you desire after your death. She also establishes guardianships and conservatorships to adequately protect your loved ones' personal and financial affairs and guarantee a high quality of living.
When a loved one has passed away, she will assist you in the administration of the estate. Whether probate or non-probate, she will make sure all estate assets are properly distributed and any debts are properly resolved. Throughout the process, she will provide the emotional support you need while handling the legal steps necessary to work through a difficult time in your life.
Because she understands that family matters are highly sensitive and emotional, Tracey believes in taking every measure to resolve the matter before resorting to litigation. By seeking a solution through open discussion and compromise, the need for costly litigation and emotional frustration is avoided. Once communication breaks down, however, she will aggressively represent your interests in court to make sure the solution meets your goals.
She takes this approach in a variety of family law matters, including adoptions, divorces, custody disputes, child and spousal support, visitation rights, and paternity matters.
Criminal Charges, DUI/DWI Charges, and Traffic Violations
For five years, Tracey prosecuted felonies in the 31st and 223rd Judicial Districts serving Gray, Roberts, Hemphill, Lipscomb, and Wheeler Counties. She also prosecuted in Clay, Archer, and Montague Counties. Through that experience, she has gained a deep understanding of the criminal culture in those areas and can defend your rights when facing a criminal charge. She will represent you through every stage of the criminal process-from arraignment to preliminary hearing, through trial and appeal if necessary. She aggressively challenges the evidence against you and seeks plea bargains to reduce the charges and penalties. She will do everything possible to ensure her client's constitutional rights are protected.
Tracey is experienced in charges ranging from simple misdemeanors to serious felonies, including robberies, assaults, burglaries, drug charges, and murder. She also provides a strong defense to traffic violations and alcohol-related charges, especially Driving While in Intoxicated (DWI). Regardless of the charge, Tracey understands that a criminal charge can be difficult to deal with alone. Because of that, Tracey provides the most sensitive representation while fiercely defending your legal rights.
When you are injured in a car accident or on someone else's property, Tracey is dedicated to ensuring that your legal and emotional needs come first. She will sit down with you to discuss your legal and personal needs and inform you of your legal options. She negotiates with insurance companies to make sure that you receive fair compensation for your pain, suffering, lost wages, and out-of-pocket expenses.
She also believes that you should not have to pay a high fee to receive high quality legal representation. When you have suffered a personal injury because of someone else's negligence, Tracey will make every effort to minimize the cost to you. She will use mediation when possible to help you reach a fair, just solution to your case, while avoiding the costs and delay often associated with litigation. In fact, when she represents your personal injury case, she will receive NO FEE unless you receive compensation for your injuries.
Social Security Disability
When you suffer a disability that impairs your ability to work, your entire life is affected. Tracey represents disabled individuals in administrative proceedings to ensure you have the best opportunity to establish your eligibility for Social Security benefits. She will discuss your situation with you and provide you with the best advice to deal with this sensitive topic. With Tracey, you will receive the best available advocacy with a personal touch.
Because of her commitment to personal relationships, Tracey gets to know you personally to learn about your situation and how it can best be handled. She also provides the emotional support needed to get through a difficult time. At the same time, she will be a tough, devoted advocate for your legal rights. With this combination, Tracey L. Jennings proves she's the attorney with a heart but still a fierce advocate.Read less
