Testimonials

  • Thanks to Pickford Law firm they got me what I needed and I’m very thankful for what they’ve done for me.

  • I am very satisfied with the legal services provided by PICKFORD LAW FIRM. On a scale from(1-10) 10 would describe my satisfaction. I would definitely recommend your Law Firm to anyone I know that needs legal help. Thank you again for everything.

  • I had an appointment to meet a lawyer and couldn't find the address. I asked a lady at a local park for help. She asked what I was looking for and I said a lawyer to which she referred me to Attorney Pickford.

    Attorney Pickford spent close to an hour on the phone with me, asking questions, giving advice, and assuring me the Social Security disability case would be in my favor. Due to my age, a shoulder surgery, and other medical issues, I am effectively unable to work anymore. Attorney Pickford became my advocate in the complicated maze of SSD claims. She continued to be in constant contact with me and was so patient with all my questions. I felt she genuinely cared what happened to me. And it turns out I was correct about that. Attorney Pickford takes complete interest in individual cases, treating each one as if it's the only one she has on the books which is a pleasant change from the attitude of many attorneys. I had expected the case to not even be heard before the judge until spring of 2018. Attorney Pickford got the case to close way before that time. I began receiving my SSD, and Medicare, November 2017.

    I have recommended Attorney Pickford to others for their Social Security disability needs. She is very savvy to the "system" of SSD claims and is dedicated to each client on an individual basis. She is patient, professional, compassionate, and encouraging when the system is dragging along on a decision. At the hearing, Attorney Pickford was completely attuned to the moment and I felt I had an angel on my side. She was so supportive at court.

    I highly recommend Attorney Pickford as your attorney of choice if you have SSD claims which are going nowhere for you.

  • After someone ran a stop sign and totaled my vehicle, Mrs. Grandberry handled everything from start to finish. I was emotionally distraught and she worked with me during that tough time to ensure that I understood my options and that it wasn’t the end of the world. She was patient, diligent, personable and had the most amazing customer service and follow-up. I highly recommend Pickford Law!

  • After I was denied twice for disability, Attorney Pickford was the best choice I could have made. She exemplified her high standard, hard working,caring, devoted attorney skills. She was very professional and explained everything in layman terms and kept me abreast of things going on. It only took her less than a year and I can say I am pleased with her results. Attorney Pickford clearly had my best interest in mind at all times.Thank you, thank you, thank you.
