Tracy Riddle - Lawyer

Tracy’s unparalleled knowledge of the public integrity system sets her apart from others.


After completing a degree in social work, it became evident to Tracy that she was more suited to alternative endeavours (a fact already well known to those around her) so she promptly joined SAPOL!

Her legal career as a police officer lasted seven years, the last four of which were as a police prosecutor. She then moved to the Crown Solicitors Office, where she was involved  in prosecutions for Government Departments. Tracy was Counsel assisting the Investigator in the City of Burnside Inquiry, prior to being engaged as the Senior Lawyer on the SACAT and then the Public Integrity Implementation Teams.

Today, her areas of expertise span all aspects of administrative law to advice, investigations and report writing for HR, WHS, Code of Conduct and integrity matters. Her attention to detail makes her the ideal lawyer for detailed bodies of work such as section 270 reviews, legislative audits and policy and procedure documents.

Her approachable, down to earth manner makes her an asset in difficult or sensitive matters, including employment discussions.

As a leader in her field, Tracy is regularly requested to present at workshops, conferences and seminars and widely publishes in her fields of expertise. Her experience has been recognised by her peers, with her fourth consecutive year listing in Best Lawyers Australia in the field of governance law and litigation.

With any free time left after dealing with her busy practice, she is often running around to various sporting and social commitments with and for her three children. Tracy is also recognised for her regular support for the excellent wineries and restaurants in her local Adelaide Hills region.
