"Many children follow iin their parents' footsteps. In a way, attorney Tracy Cox, daughter of Hamilton County District Attorney Bill Cox, could be said to be retracing her father's considerable legacy; however, a more accurate assessment of her pursuits would show her to have followed him for a time, and then forged her own path." ~ Hamilton County Herald

"Ive been on both sides and appeared before countless judges in two states and twelve counties. I understand due process, and I believe that every person must be given a full, fair, and impartial day in court. I understand the gravity of the issues my clients are faced with. I relate to my clients well because I care about them, and I care about the same things they care about." ~ Tracy Cox
