About Me



Ms. Aguilar established The AR Group after more than 17 years of providing legal, human resource, and compliance counsel to Fortune 500 companies including GE, Time Warner Telecom, and US WEST. She also served as the VP of HR and General Counsel to a 2000+ union/non union employee construction firm with operations in four states and managed HR and Legal for two high tech start-up enterprises experiencing rapid growth.


As a result of these experiences, Victoria recognized the need for sophisticated and strategic legal counsel, HR support, and compliance management. This recognition was in part borne out of her professional experience and in part borne out her recognition of increased regulation and penalty enforcement by government agencies in conjunction with employee and contract management. In considering the need for these services, Ms. Aguilar evaluated the degree to which these needs were being served by the existing legal or HR consulting marketplace. She immediately saw that they were not: Law firms were too costly and seemingly unapproachable with their $300, $400, and $500 an hour fees and most HR Consulting firms were unable to bring the legal and/or compliance expertise to the table with their service offerings. The AR Group was founded to ensure that businesses would have available sophisticated yet practical and comprehensive legal, HR, and compliance management services by a collaborative and cost effective provider.


Victoria holds an undergraduate degree in Psychology from Boston College (Summa Cum Laude), where she was also awarded the distinction of “Scholar of the College.” After BC, Ms. Aguilar attended The University of Michigan Law School where she graduated in 1992. Ms. Aguilar is licensed in Colorado and Minnesota, is certified as a Senior Professional Human Resource Executive (“SPHR”), and is a member of the American Bar Association and The Society of Human Resource Managers.
