Brian R. Tracy
His real estate practice includes extensive experience within multiple broad areas of real estate law, including so-called "dirt" law, commercial acquisitions and dispositions, both residential and commercial leasing on behalf of landlords and tenants, residential project development, zoning matters, and general real estate practice.
In practicing with the real estate area, Brian has experienced the extent to which corporate law and estate planning goals factor into advising clients on the best opportunities for achieving both long-term and short-term goals. In light of this connected nature, Brian also advises clients on general business law matters, including corporate structure, contract review, mergers and acquisitions, and other transaction matters, as well as advising on a preparing estate planning documents, including will and trust agreements.
Whether dealing with a multi-million dollar acquisition or disposition of a commercial real estate project, the nuances of easements, covenants, and other matters effecting title to property, or the sale of the family home, Brian understands the needs, best practices, and methods to reach your desired goals efficiently and cost-effectively.
Brian received a BA in Criminal Justice from Northern Kentucky University (summa cum laude) in 2014, and received his JD from the University of Dayton School of Law (summa cum laude) in 2016. Prior to joining Lindhorst & Dreidame, Brian has practiced in the Dayton, Ohio and Cincinnati office of a large, national firm headquartered in Ohio, as well as the Cincinnati office of a medium-sized firm located in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. This prior experience has provided a breadth of opportunities to touch and learn varying legal matters, customs and issues across the nation, and that experience provides a great base to handle nearly every client's transactional legal matters.
Prior to practicing law, Brian was a member of the City of Cincinnati police department, serving in the patrol section throughout his ten-year career as a police office, police specialist and sergeant. Brian's viewpoint and approach to local matters are heavily informed by the lessons learned in this daily interaction with the various neighbors and groups forming the city and its surrounding suburban communities.
Brian is a lifelong resident of Cincinnati's western suburb of Bridgetown, where he lives with his wife, three children, two dogs, a parakeet, and three newly born chicks. When not in the office, a substantial amount of Brian's time is dedicated to coordinating with his wife to attend and coordinate the myriad of soccer, flag football, baseball, lacrosse, dancing, choir, orchestra and other various activities that his children are involved in on a daily basis.
In his spare time, Brian has become an avid fan of soccer, spending incalculable hours coaching, training, learning, refereeing and participating in soccer on various levels. Additionally, Brian is a board member of Manifest Creative Research Gallery and Drawing Center, where he played an integral role in securing the nonprofit's new home on Central Parkway, and member of the board of the Hamilton County Recovery Center, a nonprofit dedicated to peer-led mental health treatment and recovery.
