KEYSTONE QUARTERLY

JUNE 2022

Summer is in full swing where friends and family are taking long awaited vacations. Here at Keystone, we’ve been busy since our last newsletter helping clients, celebrating the accomplishments of our attorneys and staff, and enjoying lots of team building and time together (in person!) as a firm. In this issue, we’ll discuss new laws about what Medi-Cal can recover from a recipient’s estate when they pass and the “special circumstances” when an estate beneficiary is permitted to sue on behalf of the estate. Also in this issue, we recognize our Super Lawyers’ Rising Stars and those who are celebrating their first big milestone with Keystone: one-year anniversary, as well as highlighting some of our fun events.

 

Read below to find out what we’ve been up to the past few months.

Keystone devotes its practice to probate, trust and estate litigation and administration. With around 40 employees, we are one of the largest firms in California exclusively dedicated to this practice area.
