Best Lawyers® has announced that nine attorneys from Keystone Law Group were included in this year’s editions of The Best Lawyers in America 2024 and The Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch® in America 2024. Partners Jim Bush, Cliff Melnick, Lindsey Munyer, Shawn Kerendian and Senior Associate James Andrade were all named as Best Lawyers. Partners Roee Kaufman and Monica Yun as well as Senior Associates Casey Reagan and Steven Urenda were all selected as Ones to Watch. 

For the fourth year in a row, Shawn has been named a Best Lawyer in the Trust and Estates and the Trust and Estate – Litigation categories, while it was Lindsey’s second time being recognized in the same categories. In the Trust and Estates – Litigation category, Cliff and James have been honored since 2023, while Jim earned his first recognition in this category. 

For 2024, this marked the first time that Roee, Monica, Casey and Steven were selected as Ones to Watch in the categories of Trust and Estates and Trust and Estates – Litigation. The Ones to Watch award is focused on honoring lawyers who are earlier in their careers and have been practicing for 5-9 years. These are attorneys who are making a significant impact in their field, and their peers in the law community are taking notice.  

The methodology for Best Lawyers® is based solely on reviews by the attorney’s peers in their location and area of practice. The 5-step process is entirely done via peer votes and analysis of those votes. This is followed by a thorough eligibility check before results are released. Since 1981, Best Lawyers® has been honoring the top attorneys in their field and is the oldest and most widely respected peer-review publication for attorneys. 

Keystone is proud of this year’s winners and their many accomplishments.
