Shawn S. Kerendian founded Keystone in 2014 to fill a specific and somewhat ambitious niche—to create a boutique practice focused solely on probate litigation and administration. Since then, Keystone has grown to become one of the largest (if not the largest) firms in California focused exclusively on this underserved market. Just in the last quarter, Keystone added six new attorneys, one law clerk, and two administrative staff members.

Currently, Keystone is seeking to fill the following positions with dedicated and hard-working individuals:

  • Senior Associate with 3-10 years of demonstrated litigation experience who possesses a passion for probate, trust, and estate law.
  • Legal Assistant with at least 1-2 years litigation experience to provide administrative support to attorneys and clients.
