I recently moved to Portland and ended up in an unfortunate situation with a crazy, narcissistic landlord who is a retired judge and attorney and who used his law background to bully me, push me around, and threaten me with an enormous law suit. Troy was very easy to work with and great at helping me to understand my complex legal situation and bring it to a peaceful resolution. I highly recommend Troy and Portland Defender. His rates are reasonable and he put in some extra time for me. All communications were clear and timely. I had never had to hire a lawyer before, and I was a little intimidated by the whole situation, but Troy made the whole thing much less stressful for me. Lawyers get a bad rap, but Troy is truly a good guy you can trust. And he will fight hard for you!
Troy was fantastic. We received a letter from our previous property management company stating that we owed them for carpet replacement because the carpet had a life of 10 years, which of course was ridiculous, as well as replacement of all bathroom flooring, which was ancient when we moved in. I wrote a letter requesting that they simply mark the account with a zero balance to avoid my seeking legal recourse, which of course they ignored. When I received the collection notice, I called Troy and he sent one letter the evening that we met to them requesting financial compensation for our inconvenience and we received a check. He was thorough, considerate and got us more than we expected. I just wanted it to go away and he did that and more.
Troy is on it; really great to work with. He is on your side, and able to clarify and support in difficult situations. It is always worth it to reach out to him. I highly recommend it. He guided me through a tricky acquisition (I was living in a building that was sold, and the new owners/management decided to empty the units to rebuild). Troy checked in on every aspect to make sure I was being treated fairly, and within the law. As soon as that was not the case, he was quick to contact the management and I received a settlement.

Troy works harder than expected to get fantastic results. I was being stiff armed by a former employer on some wage issues and Troy stepped in and handed them a convincing argument, complete with legal precedence to back up my claim. His communication skills on the progress of my case was always clear, constant, and precise. In the end, I walked away getting everything that I went into the case expecting plus some extra that I would have missed without his expert help. Highly recommend Portland Defender and Troy!
With our relocation fee case, Troy offered the utmost professionalism from start to finish. Troy was responsive via both email and phone during the week and weekends to answer questions and walk though scenarios. If you are looking for an attorney to represent you in a Landlord/Tenant claim, Troy is your guy. If you are looking for representation that will make sure that you have all of the facts before making a final decision, Troy is your guy. I would recommend Troy to others in a similar situation as ours.
A Legal Ninja! Troy was amazing. In our land-lord tenant case, Troy was like a rock in the moving ocean of legal non-sense. He knew his stuff, knew what was comming next, was very calm at all times, and helped us to feel at ease in a not so fun situation. I was almost sure when we went to trial that he was going to set off the metal detector because I was convinced there had to be some chinese stars hiding in his jacket. Ninjas always keep those things on them and Troy is definitly a legal ninja!
The moment I came in for my appointment, this gentlemen was texting away to somebody for a good 5 minutes, asking me to wait. I paid my fees and when we began to discussing my case, he kept texting away saying that he was listening. He only asked a few minor questions and then called it quits, saying that there was nothing he could do. Worst experience with a professional. I found a far more experienced attorney that helped me get through my case. Not like this youngster.
Troy gave us excellent advice on dealing with our bully landlords. He interpreted our lease and we learned that we were in a very strong position to terminate it and move on. Before we talked to Troy we were scared of retribution or being on the hook for a lot of fines - now we are confident to stand up to them and take back control of our living situation. He made himself available for us on short notice and pretty late at night - we are so grateful. He is worth it!
My wife and I applaud Troy Pickard and give him our highest recommendation. From the moment we started talking with him, we knew we were in highly capable hands. In helping us, as tenants, clarify an issue to be resolved with our landlord, he was friendly, intelligent, and focused. He quickly assessed our situation and gave us clear, excellent advice. If we ever have a landlord-tenant legal problem again, he is the one we will call. Thanks, Troy!
Portland Defender went above and beyond what I expected. Portland Defender made the whole process easy and comforting. Troy met with us several times to answer all our questions and give us an idea of things to expect. He worked quickly and we were able to resolve the situation with a settlement. I will definitely recommend my community to Portland Defender for any tenant or criminal defense issues.
This guy is the real deal! He helped us with our scummy landlord. He literally only charged us like 300 dollars for a consultation AND writing them a letter. His letter was effective and gave us exactly what we wanted without having to go to court. He is extremely ethical and wonderful to work with. If I ever have issues with a landlord or criminal issues *lets hope not* he will be my go to guy!
My experience with Troy and his assistance Kashia was excellent! They knew exactly what to do when my landlord did not want to return my deposit. They were both very professional and pleasant to deal with. The issue was taken care of in a very short amount of time. I would definitely recommend Troy Pickard to friends and family. Thanks for your help with this issue.
Mr. Pickard did exactly what he said he would. I went to see him about a misdeamenor charge and he got all the charges dropped. The judge said I was going to get sentenced to 48 hours of community service, and loss of license for 3 months. Mr. Pickard was a pleasure to work with, it was my first time dealing with attorneys and it was so much better then I expected.
I was served a 72 hr. notice i contacted Troy, meet him next day in his office i told him my landlord nightmares, Then he called the rental company he had them come and look at the unit next thing i know 72 hr notice was rescinded and there going to fix my problem immediately. Troy your the man!!! I would recommend him anytime
Hands down the best attorney I have ever encountered! His knowledge is only surpassed by his diligence and willingness to help his clients to the fullest extent. One would hope to never need an attorney but if you find yourself in a position to need one, Troy is your man. He has most certainly earned a client for life.

My fiancé and I first met with Mr. Pickard in 2014. All expenses & time spent with him were Worth It! I recently called him again and I was eased of all my worries with his opinion and expertise! Anytime I will ever need to hire an attorney, it will be Mr. Troy Pickard. Thank You So Much for All Your Help!
Troy is a superb down to earth attorney. He consulted us on how to deal with a landlord issue after we moved out and based on his advice, we got the situation taken care of to our satisfaction. I can recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney to deal with landlord tenant issues! Thank you again!
Troy Pickard at Portland Defender is a "get the job done lawyer"! Troy handled our case with knowledge and professionalism. His expertise allowed a quick and pain free resolution to an unfortunate situation. I recommend Troy for your legal needs without hesitation!
Troy goes above and beyond with quick, high-quality communication and gets the job done. He is very knowledgeable in landlord/tenant law and has provided fantastic legal assistance. This firm deserves major thanks and I would recommend them to anyone.
It was a blessing to meet and work with him. Well worth the money...i never thought i would use those words when it comes to an attorney. However, it applies here. I would recommend him to anyone. He took the edge off and made me more comfortable.
I was facing a potentially large building permit violation. Troy was able to clearly explain the possible outcomes of my situation and help me determine the best course of action. In the end, Troy helped me get the results I was hoping for.
Troy is a awesome attorney. if you have any problems going on with your Slumlord (Landlord) call troy he told me from the start that at the end of this case ill have money in my bank account, and he was right.
I just had a phone conversation with Troy this morning and he was really helpful my situation. I will be using his services from this point on. Thank you Troy
Troy was prompt and professional. He was helpful in the direction I needed to go and was always there to answer all my questions. He did a great job for me.

He was late to both meetings we had with him and he forgot about my very first meeting which wasted my time.
Troy is very efficient and has a great personality! He fights hard for his clients.
Very helpful worth the money!
