As one of only 70 certified specialists in the State of Arizona, Keith Berkshire is well versed in all areas of family law, including appellate practice. Keith routinely teaches at legal education seminars on various family law issues including legal decision-making (custody) and appellate matters. He has handled divorce cases with estate values in excess of a hundred million of dollars, to cases where there was only debt to be divided; he has represented presidents of corporations and single parents with little income, as well as those in between. Keith attempts to mediate most matters so his clients have more control over their final outcome and do not spend unnecessary attorney's fees. But when an equitable settlement is not an option, Keith aggressively pursues his client's interests in court for trial or temporary issues like temporary child and spousal support, exclusive use of residences, and orders of protection. On the more complicated matters, Keith frequently utilizes experts for business valuations, legal decision-making (custody) evaluations, forensic accounting, tax implications, vocational assessments, real estate appraisals, and retirement account division. As juvenile law is many times implicated in the family law arena, Keith also represents parties in parental rights terminations, guardianships and dependency actions.
