Ms. Keenan-Rivero joined the law firm of Perry, Johnson, Anderson, Miller & Moskowitz in July 2002, and was announced partner in November of 2011. Prior to joining our law firm, Ms. Keenan-Rivero worked as an associate attorney practicing family law from 1999 to 2002 in Petaluma, California.

Since Ms. Keenan-Rivero was admitted to the California State Bar in 1999, her legal career has been focused entirely on family law.
