Client Comments

"David Tracy and I have done business for over 20 years. David handles all of our lease, finance, and corporate matters. David has helped my company grow from a small start up to a regional shopping center development firm. I consider David a vital member of my development team and can rely on his experience and skill to handle the most complex deals. Without question, he is one of the top real estate attorneys on the East Coast."

"David Tracy and I have worked together on numerous commercial real estate deals. His strengths include a vast knowledge of retail tenants lease documents, including such companies as Walgreens, CVS, Home Depot, Lowe's, Stop N Shop, Shaw's, Staple's Office Depot, OfficeMax, etc. etc. ect. He is an extremely effective negotiator because he is first and foremost, a great dealmaker. He finds reasons to make deals, not kill them. He dovetails his leases to meet lender expectations. I have never had to go back to a tenant for language changes requested by a lender. David is detail oriented; nothing ever "slips through the cracks". His response time is usually the same day. I could go on singing his praises, but I think one statement sums up David nicely: If I had only one deal and my life depended on getting that deal done, David Tracy would be my attorney. Period."

"David is an extremely insightful and strategic lawyer. He possesses the experience, as well as the personality, that makes working with him a pleasure. He focuses on more than just the legal documents and their wording. He takes the time to understand the outcome I am trying to achieve in a transaction and works with me to achieve this goal. I have the utmost confidence in him as a negotiator, as well as a lawyer. I appreciate the personal attention he gives to the matters we work on together. David is an attorney who sees a transaction through from beginning to end and does not abandon a project when the tedious work needs to be done. Our working relationship is a positive and productive relationship that I look forward to continuing for the long term. "
