Tracey's Community Service
As an attorney, Judge Davillier was an outstanding member of the New Orleans Bar, who represents her clients very ably and with appropriate zeal, but also with grace and good humor. She possesses a first-rate intellect and years of experience, coupled with a genuine intellectual curiosity and desire for a just result. She committed much of her legal efforts through volunteerism with the Pro Bono Project on various Juvenile Court matters, representing children who have been placed in the custody of the Office of Community Services due to abuse or neglect. As the Attorney for a child, Tracey ensured that the educational, medical and psychological needs of the child were met and made sure that the best interest of the child was the primary consideration in all aspects of a case. Tracey was a dynamic attorney, who invested her time, energy, talent and leadership abilities in the City of New Orleans.
