Keith Pickard helped me so I can continue with my divorce without worries.
Now everything about my divorce is easy to understand thanks to Keith. I was worried sick until he explained right & wrong in just a couple of hours after I sent my question. If I need more help I know who to call and book a meeting. I’m ever so thankful.

Great Lawyer for Advice!
I requested to see if he would be able to represent me, but was upfront about the cost for me due to the distance. He offered me legal advice as to what to do when no other attorney's were willing to go against my exes attorney.

Best divorce lawyer in Vegas
Keith and his team were outstanding. I interviewed a handful of divorce lawyers before meeting Keith. Within 2 minutes of meeting him I knew I was hiring him. Very professional and very smart. I highly recommend him to everyone.

Delivers a slam dunk
It was a rough and scary time in life wanting to fight for my kids and my rights. I had no idea how I was gana do it or where even to start. I just knew what I wanted. I was blest when I came across Keith Pickard and his 5 star reviews after reading I had no choice but to make the call. After talking with Keith his knowledge in law and personal experience put me in such a better place. He handled my case with respect and with a firm hand. I told him what I wanted and deliverd with a slam dunk. I recommend Keith Pickard and his wonderful hard working staff Melissa to anyone seeking family law.

very kind and understanding
Mr. Pickard took more than an hour out of his time to consult with me and answered questions that no one else could seem to answer. I have not yet retained his services but I am certain as my case continues he will be my very first choice for representation. I was just most impressed that he really listened to my concerns and adressed them straight forward and honest. He did not give me false hope ..... As other Lawyers have in the past. He made clear realities and possible outcomes. I am confident in his ability to fight for me and for any divorcee who has not found justice yet.

High conflict settlements
In 2009 I had gone through a bifurcated divorce in Utah. I had been trying to collect money I had been awarded in mediation in 2012. After moving to Las Vegas in 2015 an acquaintance referred me to Keith Pickard. Keith is well versed in high conflict situations and knows exactly how to deal with contentious individuals like my ex-husband. He knew how to deal with the antics of my ex and his attorney, something my former attorneys were not able to do. Keith is straight forward and does what he says he will do. He is very conscientious of cost. He answered all my questions and returned phone calls and emails in a prompt manner. Keith listened to my concerns and was reassuring in times when I was not so sure of a good outcome. Keith and his Paralegal Will were very thorough in researching and preparing every aspect of my case. In court I could not have asked for finer representation. I finally found an attorney who stood up for me and my rights. Mr. Pickard was not only able to get me the money I was owed but also an award to cover my attorney fees and a couple of slaps for contempt on my ex, which I have to admit made me feel I had finally gotten some justice. I wish Mr. Pickard had been my attorney from the start. Regardless of where you live in Utah or Nevada, and are contemplating or going through a divorce, I strongly advise you to seek out Mr. Pickard.

Custody
Keith Pickard did an excellent job in my case. He listened to what I had to say and worked hard to do as I wished. He is VERY knowledgeable and knew the case laws he needed to use to back my rights. He explained the possible outcomes and was relentless against the opposition's counsel. Keith is a presentable attorney both on the inside and the out. He values his clients rights as they were his own. You will not go wrong with Mr. Pickard on your side. PICK PICKARD!!!

Tenant Landlord Dispute
I had a problem with my apartment complex raising my rent for sewer and trash after I had resigned my lease and had been enforced over a month when the complex decided to add more rent to my current rent. I researched the NRS Statues and found once a contract is signed and in place it cant be changed by either the management or tenant. I tried on several occasions to resolve this situation with my management, but they wouldnt listen and forced me to pay the extra fee. So I decided to hire Mr Pickard as my attorney and he wrote a legal letter and sent it to my apartments owner s and told them it was illegal what they were doing. A week later I was called by management stating they were reversing my rent back to the original amount.... If you need a great attorney who cares. Please call keith. There are angle wings in heaven waiting for you and your staff. Thanks again. Robert

Incredible Attorney
Keith Pickard is extremely knowledgeable in child custody in Clark County, Nevada. I needed someone who knew what to do in a high conflict custody case. I can firmly state I am extremely pleased with his ability. There is no such thing as immediate results in Family Court; but if you need an attorney that can get results, and in court terms get them done quickly then I would recommend his firm.

A great person to have on your side in challenging times
Keith has provided me with excellent advice and encouragement through my difficult divorce process. As other reviews have stated, Keith is well spoken and is very well versed in matters pertaining to family law. It is also obvious that Keith's prior business experience and negotiating savvy gives him and edge over many other attorneys.

Great communication. Very Trustworthy.
If I could pick any lawyer in the valley to represent me in a family law case, it would be Keith Pickard. He treats his clients well, responds to calls immediately, does not back down from opposing counsel, and advocates skillfully and zealously. I have so much confidence in him, I went into business with him.

Outstanding Lawyer and Excellent Person
Keith is the key reason the result of my divorce was as positive and advantageous to me as it was. Keith is as exceptionally smart as he is well spoken and sincere. Watching Keith negotiate with opposing counsel (my ex-wife's attorneys) was inspiring and made me realize his intelligence is 'head and shoulders' above the opposition. From the first phone call I had with Keith to the final post-divorce handshake he always had my back. I knew he was the right guy minutes after I spoke with him on the phone for an introductory call. From a personal perspective, divorce sucks and mine was difficult - Keith's focus, attitude and superior knowledge of the law gave me the confidence I needed to focus on my life, and not the divorce. From a bottom line perspective - through Keith I was able to retain several exotic vehicles, my Malibu home and work out a payment plan that made the transition easier.
