The third Keystone Quarterly of the year explores a variety of topics. It will include: (1) announcements about attorney and staff milestones, notable awards, CLE presentations, Britney Spears conservatorship media coverage and career opportunities; (2) a thorough examination of a unique case involving a will contest; and (3) guidance on ensuring the proper disposition of a loved one’s remains.
Keystone practices exclusively in probate, trust and estate litigation and administration. As a boutique firm, Keystone’s singular focus on probate allows its attorneys to cultivate a deeper understanding of the practice area and deliver this expertise to its clients. As a result, Keystone has organically grown from a three-attorney firm with two support staff in 2014 to currently include 20 attorneys and 13 support staff.
Keystone congratulates Partner Joshua D. Taylor, Senior Associate Roee Kaufman, Associate Attorney Daniel Matloubian, and Receptionist Victoria Curtice on their firm anniversaries. Thank you for helping to make our firm a huge success.
