Keystone is excited to announce the hirings of Senior Associate, Hila Golchet, and Associate, Avi Pariser.

Hila has represented hundreds of clients in litigated matters throughout California, and in a range of capacities including trustees, agents, brokers, corporations, and litigants seeking conservatorships over incapacitated loved ones. Hila holds a certified real estate brokers license and has litigated complex matters involving real estate disputes, which brings a valuable skill set to the firm as the matters Keystone handles regularly involve disputes over real property. Hila graduated summa cum laude from UCLA with a BA in political science and public affairs/public policy. She earned her JD degree at Southwestern Law School’s two-year honors law program, where she graduated in the top 15% of her class. During law school, Hila had the great honor of working as the judicial extern for Judge Robert Hess at the Stanley Mosk Superior Court in Downtown Los Angeles. She also worked as a law clerk for a prestigious civil litigation firm in Los Angeles, handling matters including elder abuse cases. Welcome Hila!

Prior to joining Keystone, Avi spent two years working in a boutique law firm specializing in complex civil litigation. He worked primarily in the field of toxic torts, representing individual plaintiffs who have been harmed by prolonged exposure to toxic chemicals. Avi gained a significant amount of hands-on litigation experience and sat second chair at a successful eight-week trial. His work included reviewing and analyzing client medical records which will provide value to Keystone as its cases regularly involve analyzing medical records of a decedent or conservatee when dealing with competency, undue influence, and financial elder abuse issues. Avi graduated summa cum laude from the Honors Program at Rutgers University before attending law school at UCLA School of Law. At UCLA, he worked as a writing advisor and research assistant for multiple professors, and worked as a staff editor for UCLA’s Entertainment Law Review. Welcome Avi!
