Tracy James was recognized by the Charlotte Business Journal as one of Charlotte’s top business women. Each year, the Charlotte Business Journal recognizes 25 women in the local business community as part of its signature Women in Business Achievement Awards. The program, now in its 19th year, highlights 25 women who have made significant contributions to their professions and to their communities during the past year. The women are selected based on a vigorous nomination and selection process from among all the female professionals in Mecklenburg County, including entrepreneurs, executives, and other female professionals. James was one of only two private practice attorneys to receive the award this year. (“Charlotte’s Women In Business: Tracy James,” June 26, 2015). James was also named a 2015 Super Lawyers Rising Star in construction litigation for the third consecutive year, a designation given to fewer than 1% percent of young attorneys in North Carolina, and was designated one of North Carolina’s Legal Elite’s in the field of construction law by Business North Carolina.
