Ronstadt Law is pleased to announce that attorney Kyle Shelton has joined the firm as a partner, expanding the firm’s reach to serve both California and Arizona on long-term disability, ERISA, and other legal matters. A seasoned trial attorney, Shelton is passionate about properly representing the disabled and holding insurance companies accountable for wrongdoing against the community. Before his position at Ronstadt Law, Shelton worked as a trial attorney at the Dr. Lawyer Law Group where he prosecuted medical malpractice and catastrophic injury cases.
Among his cases was a wrongful death case where Shelton was pivotal in securing a five-million-dollar jury verdict in Maricopa County. Shelton holds experience in a wide range of civil litigation matters, including ERISA disability litigation and insurance bad faith.
A graduate summa cum laude from Northern Arizona University, Mr. Shelton earned a Bachelor of Arts in English. He went on to obtain his Juris Doctor from the Arizona State University Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law in 2009, attending law school alongside Ronstadt founding member Erin Ronstadt. In 2016, Shelton held the title as one of National Trial Lawyers’ “Top 40 Under 40” in Arizona, and has since been named a Super Lawyers Rising Star from 2017 to 2021.
“Becoming a partner at Ronstadt Law was a decision for me that’s rooted deeply in two things: my passion for helping the disabled and the injured and my need to work with a team as committed to serving those clients as I am. I am beyond lucky to have joined my friend Erin Ronstadt who is not only an exceptional attorney and litigator, but also someone whose empathy and humanity guides all of her actions. I’m excited to get to work,” says Shelton.
Ronstadt Law founder Erin Ronstadt has represented clients against most of the major insurance companies and several Fortune 500 companies. Her experience includes managing independent medical examinations, vocational assessments, and other tools used to assess eligibility for disability benefits. In her tenure, Erin has assisted clients struggling with a multitude of disabling illnesses, both physical and mental.
“Welcoming Kyle was a natural next step for Ronstadt Law, and we are thrilled to have him join the firm,” says Ronstadt. “Kyle and I share a vision to hold insurance companies accountable for keeping the promises they make. We became fast friends in law school over a decade ago, because we are like-minded and equally passionate about injustice. Over the years, I’ve admired his career and all that he has accomplished for his clients. I am now excited for all that we will accomplish together on behalf of plaintiffs.”
