I hired Markson and Pico to work my employment case, and from the moment Tim and I discussed the issue, I knew I was in good hands. Tim is very professional, excellent litigator, and understands how to strategically navigate the legal process to achieve the desired objective, to win and be fully compensated for all loses, which was accomplished. Tim and Brett are easy to work with, and strive to meet your best interest. Nice to have them on the team.

Happy
My husband and I retained Tim Pico and his firm Markson Pico LLP after I was involved in a serious auto collision in 2018. We filed a lawsuit against the other driver after getting the runaround from the insurance company. Eventually, after gathering some information in the lawsuit, Tim got the insurance company to pay significantly more than their attorney had said they would ever pay on my claims. Tim was professional, hard-working, and always available to answer our questions throughout the lawsuit. We were very happy with his representation and would recommend him for any personal injury-type issues.

Severance Negotiation after Wrongful Termination-California
Attorney Pico is ethical, professional, and a Master Negotiator! He's the attorney you call as soon as you're presented with any sort of severance package or if you believe you're being harassed at work; the stress isn't worth it; call Tim. He's patient; he'll hear you out and treat you with dignity. My experience with Tim was pleasant every step of the way. He operated with a high level of integrity and professionalism yet he had a way of bringing laughter and calm to prevent me from losing my cool. In short, we prevailed and I'm forever grateful that he accepted my case. He's excellent against big firms; well respected amongst his peers.

Very good guidance and counsel.
I retained Tim’s services to assist in negotiating for a fair severance after my position was “eliminated” after 30 years of my faithful service. Tim was able to jump into my situation and with his guidance, assistance, and counseling, my employer significantly increased its severance offer to me and I was also able to obtain from the employer some very favorable concessions that will help me going forward. Throughout the situation, Tim was caring, insightful and very responsive. I would definitely recommend Tim and his firm.”

Excellent attorney
Tim represented me in a wrongful termination matter and was fast, professional and diligent in all respects. His communication via texts, email, and phone was excellent throughout. I was pleasantly surprised to see the cost come in less than my expectation. I strongly recommend Tim to anyone for employment work.

Give him a call, you wont regret it!
The times leading up to you needing a lawyer can be scary, and its only made worse searching for someone to represent you that you can trust. I was referred to Tim Pico and Markson Pico LLP by an acquaintance, after spending a lot of time online and making calls to numerous law firms, I chose Tim, and I’m so glad I did. Tim and his firm (Thanks Tanner Eastin and Brett Markson!) took my case on against a very large national employer and their big law firm in federal court. Tim was with me and guided me through every step of the process and made me feel comfortable, knowledgeable, and well prepared as the lawsuit progressed. It was a stressful situation but Tim was always available to answer questions, explain what was happening, and talk about strategy as well. Eventually, we became involved in settlement talks in mediation with my former employer. Although that process was difficult for me, Tim was with me and guided me through to the end. Tim was patient and helpful and I never felt pushed or bullied. Tim was always compassionate and respectful of my feelings and made sure that I was OK as things intensified during the long process. I was extremely happy with the result. Throughout my case, Tim had my back and has helped my family and me in a huge way. I would wholeheartedly refer anyone to Tim Pico and Markson Pico LLP. These guys know their stuff and get it done!

Thank you Mr. Pico
Tim Pico was referred to me by a friend. I had been fired from my job of 14 years after getting injured and felt I had been treated very unfairly based on that and the fact that I was older than most of the other newer employees. (After I recovered, my employer kept telling me there was nothing available even though they were advertising for positions!) Anyway, Tim met with me and my daughter, walked me through the process and explained everything clearly. I felt very secure and comfortable with him. He was knowledgeable about the law but more importantly, I felt he cared about me and my situation. And, while I was nervous about the process having never been involved in a lawsuit before, Tim made me feel much more comfortable. Eventually, we resolved the case, and Tim helped me to achieve a fantastic result! I would highly recommend Tim Pico and Markson Pico LLP and I do recommend them to my friends and family!

Tim Pico: FIVE STAR ATTORNEY
Tim Pico was referred to me by a prestige attorney. When spoken to Pico for the first time, I felt comfortable and immediately accounted for Pico being sensitive and supportive to any decision I needed to make. I strongly believe Pico has a sense of "peopleness" which was definitely a characteristic I wanted for my attorney. Pico demonstrated his persona being trustworthy, respectful, reliable, and knowledgeable in his arena. Pico listened to everything I had to say and respected my thoughts and ideas in a sensitive manner. Pico was also able to give me advise based on past experience and knowledge he believed would have a better outcome to my case. I am grateful to have chosen Tim Pico to represent me in a very difficult time.

Innovative and Highly Effective Legal Representation
I hired Brett Markson and Tim Pico at a time when the prospect of a successful outcome to my case appeared to be bleak at best. My case involved the interference of an expected inheritance from my deceased partner. After exhausting all my options in the probate court system and speaking to numerous other firms that said I had no case, Brett and Tim found a possible remedy that existed in 25 of the 50 states, Intentional Interference with Expected Inheritance, but did not exist in California. Brett and Tim aggressively pursued my case all the way to the appellate court which resulted in the creation of the new California tort of Intentional Interference of an Expected Inheritance, a tort that was 30 years in the making. This new tort is ground breaking and is now available to all Californians that find themselves in a similar wronged situation. I couldn't be happier with Brett's and Tim's innovative approach to my case and their high level of professionalism and compassion for my case. Brett and Tim are not all about the money, there is a true sense of right and wrong and a strong willingness to fight for what is right. I would highly recommend Brett and Tim and will use them for any future legal situations that come my way in the years to come.

Great Firm!!!! Will Recommend. ..
Tim Pico represented me with a harassment and wrongful termination lawsuit I had against my former employer.  Tim handled the case like a real professional all the way through and I had a fantastic settlement at mediation.  And, he kept me informed and in the loop the entire time.   I HIGHLY recommend Tim and his firm!

Wrongful Termination
Being wrongfully terminated is a very difficult situation to find yourself in, and having an excellent attorney to help navigate these difficult waters is vital. Tim was very engaged in my case and was diligent in my defense. He had a very clear understanding of case law and the process. Tim always kept me in the loop and given the industry I work in, he asked many questions to gain a clear understanding, given the subtle nuances and state compliance issues. Tim has a very good understanding of the mediation process and proved to be an excellent negotiator. Tim is an excellent attorney with strong ethics and I have already referred a friend to him.

Timothy Pico
I was referred to Timothy Pico by a close friend and business associate regarding an employment issue. From the very start, Tim was always readily available, sympathetic to my situation and extremely supportive. Tim was very diplomatic working with my former employer, cited numerous examples of case law that supported my claim and above all, was an amazing negotiator when it came to a final settlement. I could have never reached a favorable solution without his intervention and support and I would strongly recommend Tim to anyone with an employment related issue. I could not be happier with the outcome of my case. Five years later, I had another minor issue that required legal review and there was only one choice in my mind and that was to contact Tim. Once again, I was not disappointed and my issue was resolved quickly and with the utmost professionalism. I would strongly urge anyone else with similar issues to seek legal representation from Tim Pico as he's the best there is!
