Client Reviews
  • She was amazing! Always supportive and understanding throughout the trial and whole case for that matter. She never lied to me to make things sound better then they were. She was honest and straight forward. In court she tore apart the District attorney and the witnesses. I would recommend her to anyone! Simply amazing and now I am a free man.
  • Miss Courtney is very professional and knowledgeable. She kept inform on what I should and should do and made it very clear what my rights are. She has given me excellent advise and handled herself in the courtroom exceptionally well I would definitely recommend her to anyone. She listened to my side of the story and took into consideration the evidence that was presented. I have the utmost respect for her and wish her the best.
  • Courtney not only did an incredible job as my lawyer, but she is the very rare attorney who actually cares about her clients. It goes without saying that we came out ahead, but when I met her, I instantly knew that she was someone I could trust to get the job done. I never doubted her and she never let me down. I highly recommend Courtney and her firm Pilchman & Kay.
  • Courtney was amazing. I was so scared and she helped me understand the charges against me and all my options. She got a great result. I would not have been able to get through such a stressful time without her. I was able to reach her on her cell anytime, evening and weekends. You want her on your side.
  • Courtney has represented one of our family members in a case that lasted four years. Her professionalism, knowledge, thoroughness, and punctuality are few of the traits that impressed us throughout. She was very diligent and left no rock unturned. She treated this case a personal one and almost made herself a shoulder to cry on.
