Tracy A. Eaton

Tracy is originally from Highmore, South Dakota but graduated from Norwalk, Iowa after her family moved to the area while she was in high school. Tracy then attended Northwest Missouri State and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Education. 

From 2005 to 2010, Tracy worked as an educator in the Waukee Community School District. While working with children and families in this capacity, she realized she had a growing desire to serve on their behalf in the difficult situations they were facing. She saw a need for appropriate and helpful legal representation for families who had busy, unique and often tumultuous lives.

Given her new mission, she went back to school to pursue her law degree in 2011. She excelled in her academic studies and graduated Cum Laude with her Juris Doctorate from the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphrey School of Law. While at Memphis she received academic achievements in Divorce Law Practicum, Nonprofit Organizations, and Problems in Bankruptcy. 

She then began working as an Associate Attorney at Rice, Amundsen, and Caperton, PLLC in Memphis, Tenn., where she served as a clerk throughout law school. Rice, Amundsen, and Caperton, PLLC has been recognized in the area as the Best Law Firm in Memphis by the Commercial Appeal since 2014.

During Tracy’s time there, she served clients facing divorce and custody issues. The service she provided was consistently reliable and often commended. This experience also provided her with a solid foundation to work through unique and difficult challenges of family law cases. 

In 2017, Tracy moved back to her home in Norwalk, Iowa and was admitted to practice law in the state of Iowa in September 2017. She joined Ellis Law Offices as an Associate Attorney in October 2017. 

Tracy is also a trained mediator. She has experience to mediating property and custody issues, child support, visitation problems and disagreements between parents.
