History of Our Law Firm

the story of two attorneys with different backgrounds who met online

trial attorney Stewart Albertson of los angeles law firm
Stewart Albertson attended Loyola Law School in New Orleans, Louisiana, and then obtained a Masters in Laws and Letters in Taxation from Georgetown University. Stewart opened his own practice straight out of law school before joining a small Redlands law firm (Ziprick & Kramer, LLP).
trial attorney Keith A. Davidson of los angeles law firm
Keith A. Davidson attended Loyola Law School in Los Angeles, California. He worked for a large multinational law firm (Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, LLP) straight out of law school. He then moved to the national law firm of Sonnenschein, Nath & Rosenthal, LLP (now called Dentons) before striking out on his own law practice in 2007.

2008

Keith and Stewart met through the Los Angeles County Bar email list-serve for the Trust and Estate section.

After meeting, they decided to create a law firm. Albertson & Davidson, LLP, was launched on January 1, 2008. In the beginning, it was just the two of them. They printed their own letters, licked their own stamps, and took their own mail to the post office each day. They did not have many clients and worried about making it.

Even so, they had a desire to improve, learn as much as possible, and develop a reputation for being strong, passionate advocates for their clients. They took tough cases (cases no other lawyers wanted), and made the best of them, often being able to win a victory for a client through trial or a favorable settlement.

Keith and Stewart found that they could add value to nearly any case if they were creative, persistent, and aggressive in their approach — thus was born the Albertson & Davidson philosophy for handling legal cases.

2010

Over time, the firm they created began to grow. Ten months into the new firm, they were able to hire their first employee — a paralegal. And then they were able to move into a slightly bigger office, and hire another paralegal. And more clients came.

With more clients came an even bigger desire to learn more, innovate their services, and fight hard for those who needed their help. After nearly two years in business, they hired their first associate attorney. They also acquired an estate planning practice from a well-established Temecula-based attorney and opened their Temecula office.

2014

Rather than taking all the profit from the firm, Keith and Stewart reinvested in their practice. They bought better equipment, hired more professionals, and opened a bigger office in Ontario, California. They learned all they could about marketing, business management and leadership.

At the same time, they continued to hone their trial skills and learn from the best trial lawyers in the state in hopes of one day joining their ranks. And indeed, Stewart did so by winning a $5.7 million jury verdict for a family in a tragic wrongful death case.

Keith and Stewart had a vision to help as many people as they could with their unique blend of knowledge and aggressive representation. But to help more people, they needed a bigger reach with more office locations in different geographic areas throughout California.

Today

In September 2013, the firm grew to six attorneys total in the Ontario office. The stage was now set for an even bigger growth opportunity.

In March 2014, the firm opened the Carlsbad office with two attorneys and one paralegal — led by partner Keith Davidson. The office started slowly, but then took off with an influx of new clients.

In October 2014, the firm opened the Bay Area office.

In September 2015, the firm opened an Orange County location – led by partner Gian Ducic-Montoya – followed by Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Now, our firm is proud to be in a position to offer our aggressive advocacy to families throughout the State of California.
