Tracey Lane Russo, Founder and Principal Attorney

Following her clerkship with Judge Hennessey, Ms. Russo joined a large, international law firm’s New Haven office where she focused on civil litigation and trial practice.
In 2011 Ms. Russo opened her principal office in Orange focusing her law practice on all aspects of family law – from prenuptial agreements to divorce – as well as the litigation of complex medical malpractice and personal injury cases.
Experience and Understanding
Ms. Russo draws upon her own experience and understanding of family law to relate to her clients and provide them with exceptional service. Specifically, the experience of more than 20 years as trial attorney focused on family law and the first-hand understanding about divorce that comes from growing up as the child of divorced parents who, post-divorce, both met and married wonderful people who were and are exceptional stepparents.
Ms. Russo lives in Orange with her husband Greg where they happily have a front row seat to all of the love and craziness that comes with children as they juggle work and raising their three young children.
Volunteer and Professional Organizations
Ms. Russo serves on the executive board of three local charities -- the Literacy Volunteers of Southern Connecticut, the Nicole Donzello Foundation, and Amity Pop Warner. She is a past vice chair of the Amity Board of Education.
Ms. Russo is a member of the Milford Bar Association and the Connecticut Bar Association. In addition to speaking at seminars focused on trial preparation and presentation, she served as a past adjunct professor for first-year law students at the University of Connecticut School of Law.If you are looking for a lawyer who believes that divorce can and should be different, I would love to talk to you.
