About Tracey

Tracey is Head of the Family Department and Managing Partner of Mowbray Woodwards.

She has specialised in Family Law for over 20 years and is committed to helping separating couples deal with matters privately, constructively and if possible outside of the court. She is a strong advocate of the Collaborative process and its goals to find solutions that meet the interests of both parties and their children by working together as a team.

Tracey’s experience in dealing with complex financial, children issues and other matters arising out of a couple’s separation enables her to give clear analysis and advice on the matters that require assistance. This also enables her to support and guide her clients on what is best for them and their families.

Tracey is a member of Resolution and a qualified Collaborative lawyer.



“Tracey Smith, who excels in handling matters arising out of separations, ‘communicates well with clients’ and ‘gives well organised briefs that are focused on the real issues’. She has all the qualities you would want in a matrimonial solicitor.”  The Legal 500 UK
