The holiday season is a time for friends and family, gratitude, and reflection. We are grateful for the dedication of our Keystone team members, clients, and colleagues. Our record of success has enabled us to help more clients with their probate matters this year than any year prior. As we come to the close of 2021, we look ahead to the New Year with even greater expectations. In the words of Frank Sinatra, “The best is yet to come.” From our team to you, we wish you a safe and wonderful holiday season and best wishes for 2022.
As we reflect on the past quarter, we realized just how much we have to be grateful for. We recently had the opportunity to grow our firm, adding a new partner and offering much-deserved promotions to some of our hard-working team members. Our firm received two prestigious awards that demonstrate the respect we have earned among our professional peers. We also worked together to raise money for a local nonprofit that provides resources and care to women at risk for breast and ovarian cancers. Finally, we were able to reconnect with our team for a much needed in person celebration.
Keystone devotes its practice to probate, trust and estate litigation and administration. We are one of the largest firms in California exclusively dedicated to this practice area.
