Attorney Profile

Keith Pickard is the founding partner at the Nevada Family Law Group and focuses his practice exclusively on family law. Located in Henderson, Nevada, he represents clients in Clark County and throughout the state. Admitted to practice in Nevada since 2011, Mr. Pickard is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit. He is also admitted to the bar in the state of Utah.

A significant portion of Mr. Pickard's client base is comprised of people who are seeing their marriages coming to an end and who are thus having to deal with such related and often complex issues as the division of assets and debts, spousal and child support, and child custody and visitation. He believes that the best way for his clients to reach an accord on these matters is through amicable negotiations, but he is a forceful courtroom advocate on their behalf when litigation proves to be necessary. Mr. Pickard has also helped clients whose marriages have already been legally dissolved and who are now seeking modifications to or the enforcement of existing support and custody orders, and his family law experience has additionally encompassed adoptions and the preparation and review of prenuptial agreements.

Mr. Pickard has earned a great deal of favorable recognition from his colleagues for the way he handles what are often quite emotional matters, including an AV Preeminent* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell and a 10.0 "Superb" rating through Avvo. In addition to being an attorney, Mr. Pickard is a member of the Nevada State Senate, and in that capacity, he was the driving figure behind legislation that restructured and, in some cases, re-wrote, Nevada's child custody laws. He is a graduate of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, William S. Boyd School of Law.
