LOS ANGELES, Nov. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Elkins Kalt Weintraub Reuben Gartside LLP today added as partners premier family lawyers Anne Kiley and Thomas Paine Dunlap - an unconventional move consistent with the 40-attorney firm's philosophy of expanding when the best opportunities come along. "We are never driven by needing to be a certain number of lawyers or adding certain practice areas. We are driven by having the best people," said Elkins Kalt Founding Partner Keith Elkins. "We've known Anne for a long time. She's a real talent and I have a great deal of confidence in her. She and her team will be a great fit." That new team, which also includes law clerk Rebecca Bolour, worked together at Trope & Trope before branching off over the summer to form Kiley Dunlap. During that time, the three worked out of Elkins Kalt'sCentury City offices, where Kiley found that being among experts in wills, trusts and estate plans, tax, real estate, corporate and partnership law and business litigation enabled her to provide more comprehensive service than at a traditional boutique, family law practice. "Having such great access to partners whose expertise is in other areas of the law enables me to take a creative approach to family law," said Kiley, also an adjunct family law professor at USC's Gould School of Law. "There will be no case that is too big, too small or too complicated. Ultimately, it leads to better service for the clients."
