About Keith

Learn Keith’s areas of practice.

I focus my practice on helping clients protect their families and their wealth and helping our business owner clients plan for the most important financial event of their lives: the transition out of their business.

I am a member of WealthCounsel, a national consortium of estate planning attorneys, the State Bar of Montana’s Trust and Estates section and the Cascade County Estate Planning Council.

I was born and raised in Great Falls, and earned a bachelor’s degree in Russian Studies, magna cum laude, from the University of Pennsylvania.  Earned my law degree from the University of Michigan and initially practiced corporate and securities law in Houston, Texas.  When I returned to Montana, I worked as a trial lawyer with the Great Falls law firm of Jardine, Stephenson, Blewett & Weaver before joining my father-in-law, Bill Scott, to form Scott & Tokerud in 1986.

I have been active in public service and in 2009 received the State Bar of Montana’s Neil Haight Pro Bono Award for my fourteen years of work to obtain political asylum for a political dissident from the Soviet Union.

I have served as chairman of the board of the Great Falls Chamber of Commerce and Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Great Falls, and also served on the boards of the Benefis Healthcare Foundation, United Way of Cascade County, Sister Cities of Great Falls and the Montana/Kazakhstan Exchange Project.

I play the clarinet and saxophone and have been a member of the Great Falls Symphony as well as the Harold Nicholls Big Band. I am fluent in Russian and my interests extend from building democracy in Russia to pheasant hunting.
