Dear friends,

It is my great pleasure to introduce Tracy Walters McCormack, former Director of Advocacy at The University of Texas School of Law, who will be joining our team as an experienced mediator, arbitrator, and consultant.

Tracy is available immediately for mediations and arbitrations, both in-person and remote, as well as the services below.

  • Court-Appointed Neutral
  • Small and Large Group Teaching and Training
  • Program Design and Implementation

Prior to joining our team, Tracy served as the Director of Advocacy at The University of Texas School of Law and as a full-time lecturer since 2000, following 14 years of practice as a trial lawyer in Austin. She remains a Senior Lecturer at the Law School.

Tracy is the President of the National Board of Trial Advocacy. She is a founding member of the Patent Litigation and Complex Litigation specialty commissions. She is a member of Austin Board of Trial Advocacy and is a co-chair of its Professional Education Committee, as well as other ADR and legal organizations. Her most recent book, Remote Advocacy in a Nutshell, was published by West Publications in 2021.
