We worked together on a difficult and contentious case. His ability to pull various parties together to reach a satisfying result was key. He was creative, vigilant and persuasive.

I met Shawn Kerendian as a court appointed attorney in a conservatorship matter filed by his firm. He was also training a new associate on this matter and supervising her. He was extremely professional, courteous and assisted in getting the matter resolved economically for his client. I have observed him in court and find him well prepared and confident. He has been generous, as a college, in answering legal questions and assisting with employment law questions. — Private Practice Lawyer

My mother and brother died. I wasn't informed of their deaths until two or three weeks later. Two of my mother's friends called me and told me that they died. I called Keystone Law Firm and I was introduce to Katja which she is an excellent attorney. Her knowledge and facts about Probate laws and procedures were good. Katja always kept me informed. She has a positive and cheerful attitude. She has a great future. She took good care of me. — Thomas W. Kopp
Very efficient and knowledgeable in estate and probate issues. Communication and responsiveness was excellent. — Anonymous
When my Mom passed away, I unexpectedly had issues with my sibling regarding my Mother's Trust. I was referred to Keystone Law Group and I'm so glad I was. First off, Keystone is a very well run and efficient company. Everyone you work with is smart, professional and nice. Response time was always quick and efficient. My lawyer, Monica was incredibly smart, organized and easy to talk to about my concerns. This was my first time working with a lawyer and the situation was a new experience for me, not to mention emotional. However, working with Monica, I felt I had someone on my side fighting for me and my rights. Throughout the process, Monica always communicated all options for me along with recommendations for resolution. Her customer service was excellent and she was always available to talk and answer any questions. Monica is quite simply an excellent lawyer! I highly recommend Monica and Keystone Law Group. — Claire
We highly recommend Shawn for legal services in the estate, trust and probate field. While handing a lengthy and complex case for us, Shawn faced difficult obstacles, but always conducted himself in a steady & highly professional manner. Shawn knows the law and worked quite well with other attorneys as well as the judges involved in our case, and maintained good communication with his clients throughout. — Charlotte
Keystone took a convoluted situation and slowly, but surely untied it. In the end, the results were exactly what I was seeking. Very crafty in negotiations & depositions. I liked that they were not afraid to "manage my expectations" back to cold, hard reality. I hope I never see a court room again, but if I do, it will be with Keystone. — Paul
I have had very limited interaction with lawyers but from friends and relatives have heard horror stories. The entire staff is knowledgeable, warm, considerate, prompt and have exceeded my wildest expectations of lawyers. They know what they are doing. They turned a 2 1/2 year nightmare into something I could work within 2 months. They listen and understand these are painful times or you wouldn't be contacting them. They put my mind at ease. If you don't at least consider them you won't be getting the best council. — Lenda
Shawn is an excellent attorney and knowledgeable in his field. His firm provided me A-rated services in a very professional environment. He was always overseeing and knew of my case, even while other attorneys were involved. The fees are very reasonable, and honest. Each month, I will receive a statement of all services performed. But most of all, Shawn is very personal, and kind-hearted. He is honest, and would advise me of all the possible outcomes. I would recommend this firm to anyone in a heartbeat! — Anh Doan
Shawn Kerendian at Keystone handled my mother's estate when she passed away. He explained everything so clearly that a six year old would have understood. He took care of everything on a timely basis and made the whole process, which is never pleasant, relatively painless. He always made me feel confident that he had the estate's best interests at heart. And he was very easy to work with. I would strongly recommend Keystone for this and other similar types of work. — Ira Kalish

YOU AND THE TEAM ALWAYS WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND IN CATERING TO ANYTHING I NEEDED. You guys are TOP NOTCH!!! — Mr. Ben Finister III
