Tracie A. Vermillion, Certified Paralegal

Tracie A. Vermillion, CP graduated the University of Illinois (Champaign-Urbana) in 2001 with her Bachelor of Arts degree in Speech Communications. After graduation Tracie worked as a legal assistant for a law firm in Evansville, Indiana. Tracie later sat for the paralegal certification exam offered by the National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA) and obtained her Certified Paralegal (CP) status. As a member of NALA, Tracie must maintain the CP status by attending various continuing legal education seminars.

Tracie moved to Missouri in 2005, and began working with Ms. Christoffersen at a local St. Louis law firm. During her time at the firm, Tracie was relied upon to perform paralegal duties for all members of the business practice group, dealing in matters relating to tax, estate planning & probate, contracts, business matters, and real estate. As a result, Tracie’s knowledge bridges the gap between paralegal and attorney and she performs many advanced tasks, as well as those tasks that are uneconomical for an attorney to handle. This unique skill set has been further developed in the years since leaving the firm and working directly for Ms. Christoffersen in 2011. Since then, Tracie has continued to develop her knowledge and expertise. Tracie’s skills extend beyond the legal field as she is also responsible for managing the daily needs of a professional office. Tracie continuously works to develop herself in all areas.
