Keith is a second generation Asian-American and a native Angeleno. His mother and father immigrated to the United States from different cultures but shared the American Dream – to seek better lives and futures. As individuals who arrived with only their good names and incredible work ethic, they shaped his integrity and morality, the most important character traits in a judge.
“Keith Koyano is intelligent, compassionate, and patient, always seeking justice in all that he does.”
– May W. Chung, Head Deputy, Community Violence Reduction Division
