"My clients bring some of their most emotionally charged circumstances to my family law practice. I owe it to them to provide honest counsel and a true sense they will not suffer this alone."

Derek Pica Divorce Lawyer

An honest attorney for Idaho families

I tell it how I see it. Prospective clients need to understand this, and my current and previous clients appreciate this. This philosophy is the same I use to run my ranch. When it comes to family law—and ranching—there’s no room for beating around the bush. There’s just too much at stake.

Clients ask for my help with the expectation that I can deliver peace of mind. In the more than twenty years of my Idaho family legal practice, compassion tempered with a straightforward approach has been the best policy.
