Joe and his team helped me work seamlessly through a very difficult situation. They were responsive, patient and the advice and guidance was impeckable. Thanks for a great job!

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 and his staff guided me thru the divorce process providing excellent knowledge, advise and support. The entire staff made this life changing event bearable. I am glad I was referred to Joe to handle my case.

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.

I started a divorce suit in June of 2006 with one of the so-called best divorce lawyers in Colorado. He was not up to the task of handling my wife's ex-husband/lawyer. Her ex/lawyer was obsessed with winning this case. I fired my first lawyer in November 2006 due to lack of performance. I hired Joe Pickard the same day. Joe was better than any lawyer that I have ever met. He was always there for me with wisdom and good advice. The case ended a year later and I can say my ex got basicly nothing because of Joe. You can not do better than Joe Pickard for your lawyer and I do not like lawyers,usually.

I hired Joe and his firm in a time of huge distress in my life. He was compassionate and was able to help me make decisions according to the law not out of my emotions. He is honest and forthcoming which helped me see things more clearly. He fought for me, for my rights, and what was right for my children. He knew it was going to be a battle but he stood his ground and would not settle or back down from what we both knew was right. Joe and his associates attended every court date and hearing with smiles on their faces. It was always pleasant instead of being so stressful. After our case was closed, Joe and his firm kept in close contact with us wanting to know how things were going. When I got remarried and my husband wanted to adopt my kids, Joe and Kerry were there to walk us through each step of the process. They celebrated with us at the decision and final adoption! Pickard and Associates will always be close to our hearts.

Joe Pickard operates with honesty and integrity, two words that are not always associated with his profession. His work is thorough, diligent, aggressive, yet fair. I would recommend his services implicitly.

Joe Pickard is the founder of Pickard & Associates, P.C. During my divorce case, I worked with a different attorney from the law firm so I didn't interact with Joe on a regular basis (please see my review for Justin Ross). However for a few reasons, I wanted to submit this review.
At the very beginning of my case, Joe took the time to come in and meet me personally. His warm handshake and sincere words helped calm the fears I had at the start of a very difficult divorce. He also worked closely with my attorney throughout the case, offering advice and guidance.
My other feedback for Joe is about the wonderful team he has pulled together. Everyone, from the first person I met when walking through the door, to other attorneys, to the paralegals that supported my case, went out of their way to answer my questions and to take care of my needs. Simply put, they exceeded my expectations for customer care and attention. And I appreciated it.

Joe Pickard sets the standards of credibility and integrity. It was apparent he earned the respect of the judge who heard our divorce case. When my ex-husband fought tenaciously to keep all of "his" retirement, my attorney was proactive in protecting me. However caddy the opposing attorney became, Kerry Simpson always responded respectfully. Joe's firm is proof that one can fight for justice without compromising ethics. It is comforting to know when I am going through the emotional pain they are watching out for me!

I had reached a wall in negotiations with the claims service that was handling my case with a Denver area hospital. I decided to hire Joe Pickard to take on my case once the claims rep started insinuating that the injuries I'd incurred due to the hospital's treatment were my own fault! Not only did having legal representation save me a lot of frustration, Joe and his team were able to negotiate far more effectively, increasing my settlement 60% over where the claims rep had been holding firm. By the way, that's 60% NET (after legal fees). I'm confident I would not have been able to secure the settlement I received without his help.

I was unfamiliar with domestic relations law and the criminal allegations that sometime accompany such work. I needed help with a client thrown into those ares. I was referred to Mr. Pikard by another attorney. I did not know Mr. Pickard. When I called Mr. Pickard, not only did he take considerable time out of his schedule to help on several occasions, he provided me with spot-on analysis and citations that allowed me to handle my client's issues successfully. His demeanor and command of the law gave me the confidence I needed to do my job for my client. I would rely on his counsel any time and I would not hesitate to refer others to his firm.
