Barbara is extremely knowledgeable in Family Law, and is highly regarded by other attorneys. She takes the time to understand the situation, and is honest about what the expected outcomes may be. While she clearly strives to avoid litigation and instead work collaboratively with the opposing party and counsel to resolve issues, this isn't always possible. In court she is always prepared, very articulate, respectful, and current on recent case law. This goes a long way in earning credibility before a judge. Barbara pays careful attention to assure that my interests and those of my children are protected. She has provided insightful guidance through a nasty divorce, domestic violence incident, and multiple post-judgment motions. If you are looking for an attorney who will advocate for you during stressful process of divorce and beyond, you will be happy that Barbara is on your side.
Divorce is a emotional and tedious process, hiring Barbara to represent me, she enabled me to have peace of mind. She is an expert in this field and advised and guided me through this complex, tumultuous process allowing me to focus on the emotional component for myself and my children. Barbara's staff complements her well.
Best decision I could have made was to hire Barbara Aaron. Smart, Fair, Kind, Compassionate. She was the perfect advocate. I cannot say enough about her. Plus you can always trust a Dog Lover! : )
Barbara helped guide me through one of the most difficult times in my life with wisdom and kindness. I will continue to recommend her to sophisticated couples who are looking for a mediated divorce.
I received attorney Aaron's name as one of about three recommendations for a divorce attorney in the Hartford area. I looked her up, saw good reviews and met with her. She was responsive, professional, attentive to my concerns and knew the terrain well. I was very thankful for my outcome. She met with the other team, make a strong case for me and achieved a mutually agreeable settlement with my ex and me.
This was my initial divorce attorney - I say initial because I needed more after. She has no concept of how to handle a divorce concerning domestic violence and I found has little respect for women who are victims of domestic violence. She did not fight for me or my kids. I was threatened and coerced and my kids were used as ammunition. In the end my kids suffered abuse and neglect and it took me 3 years to undo only part of the damage. I have still not recovered from the financial devastation Barbara laid out for me she walked away over 10k richer and could not care less.
