TRACY C. BROWN Family and Divorce Lawyer
Experience at work Strategic Counsel for all your Family Law matters
Family Law is as much about managing the emotion and stress of family breakdown as it is about purely legal matters.
We provide counsel when you are under stress. We provide information and advice on your legal options and guide you through the process, whether an out-of-Court approach (negotiation, mediation, arbitration, judicial dispute resolution) or in Court (claims, applications, hearings, trials).
We know what we don’t know and we will always refer you to additional expertise if your matter requires it.
Choosing the right family lawyer for you
It is always a good idea to meet with a few lawyers before retaining a lawyer to assist with your family or divorce matter. Most family disputes are stressful, emotionally draining and costly. Choosing the right lawyer for you is important. There are many styles of ‘lawyering’ and many approaches to family disputes, and especially those involving children. Not every lawyer is the best fit for every case or every client. A consultation will enable both you and the lawyer to determine if it’s a good fit.
Typically family & divorce lawyers in Alberta charge for consultations. At Brown Law Group our policy on consultations is that we charge the lawyer’s hourly rate for one hour as a flat fee, regardless of the length of the consultation.
For us, a consultation is much more than a “meet and greet” event. We consider a consultation to be an initial “case assessment.” We go through the pertinent history to understand the background and the nature of your legal problem. Our goal is to give you an overview of what the legal options will likely be for your situation (as much as this is possible with the information before us in a first meeting). We also try to identify any immediate risk factors or legal steps you should be aware of to protect your interests.
After a consultation there is no obligation to retain us. Similarly, we may decide after a consultation that your case is not a good fit for us. We often refer individuals seeking legal representation to other lawyers who may be more appropriate for their particular case.
“Tracy is an awesome, results oriented lawyer. She is very knowledgeable, transparent and fair in nature. She and her team go above and beyond.”
M.S. Former Client
“Fauza is a smart bright, intelligent competent lawyer. She assisted on my 10 day trial with her colleague Tracy Brown. She managed and analyzed 10 years’ worth of financial records and handled some of the witnesses at trial. Fauza is a young rising star and she and Tracy are an amazing trial team. She works tirelessly and will go to all ends to do what needs to be done. AMAZING!!”

“I was so happy to find this lawyer. My case was very complicated and had cost me a lot of money over the years. Tracy was able to settle most of the issues without going to court and the other things we worked out I was so pleased. Keep it up at the Brown Law Group. You are awesome.”
“Tracy is an excellent family law attorney. We have retained her services in a highly contentious parenting case, and are more than satisfied with the job she and her staff has done. We were cautious to hire a lawyer to begin with because of the costs and because of the reputations of many family law attorneys. We wanted someone who we could trust and who cared about our family. Tracy has gone above and beyond for us, and alleviated our reservations. Even though she is very busy (this comes with the territory, I think), she has always been responsive and makes herself available anytime we need her. She’s done a great job in and out of court for us.”

“Excellent lawyer, very smart and can get to the heart of the matters. She is exceptional and I recommend her highly in divorce and family matters.”

“Tracy is tenacious, caring, and an excellent lawyer. She managed a complicated trial for me against an angry high conflict self-represented spouse who would not agree or cooperate at any level. Tracy took the entire burden of managing 10 years’ worth of litigation and ended my personal nightmare. She personally cares about her clients. I would recommend her as she is not afraid of litigation, if that is your last alternative and you have someone belligerent who will not accept reasonable settlement proposals. Tracy is there to advocate for you and will go all the way with you and provide you with excellent representation.”

“Tracy knows her stuff. She puts in the work catching up on my very complicated file. Correspondence is very fast and all the staff is extremely knowledgeable. Worth every penny. Best advice my old attorney ever gave me was to hire Tracy.”
