"Bill Pickett is the best lawyer ever."

Ahnalisa De Lano

"I was in an auto accident and my entire world turned upside down. It was very difficult to get my medical care providers to take me seriously. After five months of asking for an MRI, and being ignored. I hired Pickett law firm. One phone call later from them, it was scheduled. It was the start to my recovery. Bill and his team made me feel like they actually cared for me, the person. Not just about getting paid. They got me get a fair settlement. They also explained everything that was going on during this process. He and his team always made me feel like I matter."

"Pickett Law Firm has been such a blessing for me. I've used their services several times and they will definitely be the people I turn to if I'm ever in need of legal assistance again. The staff was so helpful and great at communicating everything to me and the disputes were resolved quickly. I definitely would recommend their services to anyone and everyone."

Katelyn Hansen

"After I was injured in a car accident that wasn't my fault, I felt like I was second guessing everything I said to the insurance companies. It was such a relief when I contacted The Pickett Law Firm and they took everything over. I was able to focus on my physical therapy and actually getting back to where I was before the accident. When it came to closing the claim they made sure I was treated fairly. I am so grateful for their help and am so glad I no longer had to deal with the insurance companies. There was so much more to a car accident claim that I was not aware of and I would not of had such a great outcome without the help of The Pickett Law Firm. Thank you so much!"

Mike Rock

"I have worked with Bill for a number of years on a couple of cases and I can only say that he is more than a professional. He is a friend. He cares about his clients and goes out of his way to explain each step along the way. When it comes to crunch time, Bill is a bulldog and fights tooth and nail for his clients. I highly recommend Bill Pickett for any legal needs you may have."
