Still paying for his mistakes. He and his staff couldn't even get my support documented correctly. Now years later after reviewing the documents on my own I found that my worksheets were filled out wrong and I have over paid to the tune of $12,353. He refused to fight my exs attorney and now years later I am being dragged back to court. Do yourself a favor and move on to the next choice! Or end up paying an attorney who makes mistakes and wants to settle and not fight for you. After all are you hiring an attorney to fight for you or just turn every dime in assets over to your ex?

Joe and his staff were incredible and made me feel totally at ease and comfortable with everything they were doing for me. Everything was done right and they really saved the day for me.

Joe Pickard and his firm recently helped me through a long and contentious divorce. It was by far the most difficult period in my life, but Joe and his team helped to manage the process and kept me focused on our overall objectives. We chose an effective mediator and avoided a costly trial. In fact, Joe developed a number of strategies that helped to save me money during the settlement process.
If you are going through a divorce, it is vital that you choose an attorney with whom you can develop an effective relationship during this difficult period in your life. I found Joe to be very effective and efficient, but it was his qualities of honesty, empathy, fairness, integrity and loyalty that were key to making the relationship work. He was truly my trusted advisor and protected my interests, (legal, fiduciary, emotional and spiritual)!
Thank you Joe, KayAnn and the entire team at Pickard and Associates!

I cannot recommend Joe Pickard and his dear staff highly enough. If you ask him to represent you, you are going to find yourself truly blessed. If you have come to that point in your life situation where you need an attorney, Joe will stand by you and do far more for you than to just get you through it. Perhaps, your divorce case is amicable and easy to resolve, but perhaps what took you to this painful decision was having no choice but to seek freedom from a kind of prison. The issues in my marriage became a nightmare during the divorce. Even when you know freedom will come eventually , it may turn darker and more contentious than you think you can survive--- even when you are grounded in an unshakable faith in the goodness of God. Joe has a unique and remarkable gift to encourage that is truly God-given. He is a joy and a light to all around him!
And he has a spirit of excellence! He will be a friend when you need one. You will be impacted for life in the best possible way; Joe deserves high honor for his heart, his passion for people in need, his integrity, and the lasting hope he will release into your life. God bless Joe Pickard!

Joe Pickard provided training for Leadership Jefferson County regarding the defense perspective during their training on justice and the courts in May. He was clear, balanced and engaging. He highlighted the ethics all defense counsel should demonstrate. Joe Pickard also provided training to police expert witnesses in June. Again, he provided an excellent training experience. It should be noted that Joe provided all of this with no compensation. He made a very strong impression.

I have known Joe Pickard for nearly 30 years, and I have found him to be above reproach in his personal integrity and straightforward way of handling my legal questions. He is clear in his communications and prompt. He seeks to understand a client's needs and excels in his dedication to competence and the law.

Kerry Simpson (on staff of Pickard & Associates) and Joe Pickard helped us with a very difficult situation involving our grandson and our need to have visitation rights because of the involvement of social services with our daughter and him. We were extremely involved in our grandson's life from his birth and had custody of him twice during his first 3 years of life. We wanted to ensure that he would be able to keep contact with us, as our daughter's mental health issues sometimes cause her to threaten to withhold him. It is unusual for grandparents to be granted these rights, but Joe and Kerry were able to negotiate this successfully for us. Thankfully, most of the time, our daughter is willing to let us see him more than the once a month (2 consecutive days, 2 consecutive nights) that we were able to get, but when she isn't, the court order is a blessing. Joe and his whole staff were wonderful at explaining the "system", the laws pertaining to visitation rights, putting together what was needed to present our case, and in addressing all our many concerns. They also demonstrated huge empathy, which I believe doesn't always happen with attorneys. We see Joe in the grocery store sometimes, and he treats us like family. So nice! My daughter is also utilizing their services in a car accident suit which has resulted in her inability to continue in her occupation. She also is so confident and comfortable with the firm.

Joe Pickard represented me in an important business matter. I found his counsel to be pungently practical, counselor-wise, and alert to my and the defendant's circumstances. He gets to the point by virtue of analyzing a problem succinctly and then creating a wise conclusion. I recommend him as an attorney of the first order who is able to deal on all fronts with strength and sagacity.
