Tracie Tomak knows that a Judge is a servant leader.  She has the right balance of legal experience, business experience, and community leadership to serve ALL citizens on the 10th District Court bench.


Tracie does the hard work to resolve cases as an attorney, and has ACTUAL trial experience in ALL of our Calhoun County Courts.  Tracie has Jury Trial experience in District Court, Circuit Court, Family Court and Probate Court.  She has worked on hundreds of trials and evidentiary hearings in her career.


As a certified Mediator Tracie knows the importance of resolving cases and applying the facts to the law.  She treats all persons in the courtroom with dignity and respect while asking tough questions and searching for the truth.  Many opposing parties come back to hire her for other matters due to the diligent and respectful approach she applies to everyone.  


Tracie has the strong personal values, work ethic, and balanced temperament that make her the RIGHT choice to serve as OUR next District Court Judge.


The right experience.  The right person. Someone who wants to serve US.  #Tomak4Judge
