Jon J. Key

Of Counsel

Mr. Key co-founded the firm with Steven T. Walther in 1972 under the original firm name of Walther & Key. Affectionately referred to by his partners as "J.J.", he was the heart and soul of the firm throughout his many years of practice until his well deserved retirement over 30+ years later. While still "of counsel" to the firm, Jon enjoys spending most of his time at his ranch outside of beautiful Lamoille, Nevada.
