About me

Bill Pickett is a solo practitioner in Central Washington.  His practice focuses on trial advocacy in Personal Injury / Wrongful Death matters, Civil Rights (Police Misconduct), and Medical Malpractice.  He is a frequent guest speaker on Trial Advocacy, Police Misconduct, and Medical Negligence issues.


Bill received his B.A. degree in Society & Justice from the University of Washington, Seattle, in 1994, and his Juris Doctor degree from Northwestern School of Law of Lewis & Clark College, Portland, in 1997. Bill also received an LL.M. degree in Trial Advocacy from Temple University James E. Beasley School of Law in 2007.  He is a graduate of the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyer’s College in Dubois, Wyoming.


Bill serves as an Adjunct Faculty member in the LL.M. Trial Advocacy Degree Program for Temple University School of Law.

Personal Perspective:

"Before college, I worked in Alaska as a Commercial Fisherman and Deep Sea Diver.  That experience taught me to work hard and accept the risks that come from living life.  I believe in the underdog.  I cherish the Biblical story of David and Goliath.  I believe that mean-spirited Giants still roam this earth, and that they continue to prey on anyone they perceive as weak.  I am absolutely passionate about strengthening people to fight back."


Bill lives in Yakima, Washington with his wife, Laura, and three children, Jack, Grant, and Madeline.
