Wayne Mangold

Wayne  was a caregiver for his wife for many years prior to her passing in 2017.  In order to provide services and therapies to his wife, it was necessary to travel 300-400 miles each week for the services.  Unfortunately those services are/were severely absent in the south east valley.  Mr. Mangold wrote a memorandum describing his journey to locate and provide those services and therapies.  Afterwards he visited each of the partners requesting help to create programs in the southeast valley for current and future families traveling similar journeys.

Sheryl Keane

  At Keystone Law Firm we believe in family summers at Grandma's house. We believe in peace of mind as young parents, as empty-nesters, as retirees, and as seniors leaving legacies.
We believe in slow cups of weekend coffee and Sunday dinners. We believe in lives lived the way you want.

We help nice people create guaranteed estate plans. For those who need help after a loved one has passed, we also are there to help with probate matters.
And, for the sweet feeling of assurance that care will be affordable and available in the later years, we also help people protect their assets from nursing home costs.

We also believe in transparency in fees. That's why we do as much work as possible as a flat fee.
