"UNC was an indispensable building block that helped me construct my life and my career as an attorney. The Political Science program and the faculty in the department made my undergraduate experience truly exceptional -- inspiring me to think analytically and independently -- to take information and think about it in the abstract, to formulate and evaluate theories and arguments, and to link those theories and arguments back to the world of empirical data. The critical thinking skills that were fostered in my Political Science courses at UNC easily carried over into later experiences in my life, the least of which include law school and the transfer of those skills into my chosen career as a trial lawyer"

Tracy is a partner with the law firm of Bean, Kinney & Korman in Arlington, Virginia. With more than 17 years of experience as a trial lawyer in Northern Virginia and the District of Columbia, she is a specialist in all aspects of divorce and family law with a concentration in litigation.

A Colorado native, Tracy grew up on a small farm in rural Bennett, Colorado. She earned a volleyball scholarship to UNC, but when a knee injury ended her career early in her Freshman year, she focused her areas of study on Political Science and Journalism, graduating magna cum laude from the University Honors Program in 1992.

After graduation, Tracy attended law school at American University, Washington College of Law in Washington, D.C. Out of law school, she began her career as a trial attorney, first joining a solo practitioner in Arlington where she gained valuable courtroom experience early in her career. Gaining a reputation for reliability and competence, Tracy later joined a downtown DC firm where she further developed her poise and fundamental courtroom skills before joining the 39-lawyer firm of Bean, Kinney & Korman. Tracy was named a partner with Bean, Kinney & Korman in 2005.

Tracy is listed in Best Lawyers in America for Family Law and as one of Virginia’s Super Lawyers “Rising Stars” for 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2012. She was also recognized as one of the “Top Divorce Lawyers” in Metropolitan Washington, D.C. in February 2009 by Washingtonian magazine.

Tracy currently serves as a Neutral Case Evaluator for the Fairfax County Circuit Court in Fairfax, Virginia.

She is admitted to practice law in Virginia and the District of Columbia. She is the former chair of the Family Law Section of the Arlington County Bar Association and former chair of the Young Lawyers Section of the Arlington County Bar Association. She is a member of the Virginia State Bar Family Law Section, the Fairfax County Bar Association Family Law Section, and the District of Columbia Bar.
