Mr. Pickard did exactly what he said he would. I went to see him about a misdemeanor charge and he got all the charges dropped. The judge said I was going to get sentenced to 48 hours of community service, and loss of license for 3 months. Mr. Pickard was a pleasure to work with, it was my first time dealing with attorneys and it was so much better then I expected.

Troy fought hard for our rights when we faced an illegal attempted eviction. We were able to avoid going to trial and negotiated a more reasonable move-out date, as well as receiving damages due to the illegal actions of the landlord (related to repairs they didn't want to pay for). Troy worked with the landlord's attorney in order to secure a favorable resolution. We also received our deposit back in full, something I have never had happen despite our excellent care of previous landlords' properties. If I knew I could have my rights so well-represented I would never have allowed previous landlords to push us around and take advantage of us. Thanks Troy!

After having consultations with multiple attorneys in the area, choosing Troy was the right decision. I was being charged with a misdemeanor theft III charge that threatened to ruin my career opportunities after college. Troy took charge of my situation, putting me at ease throughout the entire process. He was very reassuring and confident in the information and guidance he provided to me, while genuinely caring about my situation.
Troy explained my options clearly and concisely, explaining that my case fit the mold of a civil compromise. Upon agreeing to persue a civil compromise, Troy began working passionately on my case. He kept me updated every step of the way. It was incredibly comforting to have somebody on my side that knew the workings of the court-system and the law so thoroughly. Additionally, Troy is very well networked and rooted in the community. It is clear that his reputation in the community is as important to him as his success as a lawyer.
Ultimately, because of Troy's dedication and hard work, the case was dismissed. I cannot express my immense gratitude. What a pleasant experience in the midst of an altogether difficult and stressful situation. Troy was the first attorney I have ever needed, and he is the only one I will ever go to in the future.

Hands down the best attorney I have ever encountered! His knowledge is only surpassed by his diligence and willingness to help his clients to the fullest extent. One would hope to never need an attorney but if you find yourself in a position to need one, Troy is your man. He has most certainly earned a client for life. -JR

We applaud Troy Pickard and give him our highest recommendation. From the moment we started talking with him, we knew we were in highly capable hands. In helping us, as tenants, clarify an issue to be resolved with our landlord, he was friendly, intelligent, and focused. He quickly assessed our situation and gave us clear, excellent advice. If we ever have a landlord-tenant legal problem again, he is the one we will call. Thanks, Troy!

Mr. Pickard is an excellent choice for an attorney and I would highly recommend him. I enlisted Mr. Pickard's help in dealing with an evil landlord. He politely and quickly assisted me with top notch representation and has likely helped me avoid sleepless nights and migraine headaches stemming from the situation. Not to mention, I think it's strategically advantageous to have an attorney with a fancy office on 5th Ave. I have a few degrees in Consumer Science and like to think that I'm somewhat of a savvy consumer. With that in mind, believe me when I say that Troy Pickard is the attorney for you.

I hired Troy after waiting over a month and a half for my old landlords to return my security deposit. Two weeks after I hired troy, I received a check in the mail. Troy is an excellent lawyer, and very easy to talk to. I would definitely hire Troy again.

I had a recent incident with my landlords and was pushed to the limit. I decided it was time that they learned a valuable lesson about treating their tenants with respect for breaking the law. I hired Troy and was very happy with the overall outcome of the situation. He was very professional and respected me and my partner. He was very clear with us how everything would happen and worked extremely hard to conquer what needed to be taken care of. He was diligent every step of the way and never stopped updating us. In the end he made us feel dignified and well taken care of. I would highly recommend Troy for any landlord disputes you find yourself in.

Troy is very good. My former landlord lived in an alternate reality where he felt entitled take our money and threaten us, and Troy took him to town. I appreciate how personable and professional he is. I trust his advice and practice. He gave us realistic expectations and got results. I'd definitely work with him again.

Troy successfully represented me against the house manager and landlord of the space where I used to rent a room. I'm italian and obviously the language barrier and the differences with the laws from my country encouraged the landlord to take advantage of the situation. They were holding my security deposit, claiming damage in the house that I didn't make and exaggerating the bills from the last month.
My case wasn't really lucrative for Troy, but he took it, asking just a small fee to cover the expensive of the case. That doesn't means that he was negligent . He always took the time to listen to my concerns, and we met several times outside of his office in a location more accessible for me, and he did a good job of explaining each step of the process.
I highly recommend Troy Pickard to anyone that wants a knowledgeable and honest attorney.
