My children were placed in state custody due to allegations that were simply untrue we have been fighting this case for six months however I know the outcome will be positive on our end. Steve is very knowledgeable on every case he takes on. He isn't just a lawyer but also a friend who will believe in you and stick by you until the end. He is also very well liked and respected throughout the courthouse . I once had the lawyer on the opposing side tell me he respected Steve because he was the only lawyer he knew with any common sense, that has stuck in my head for awhile because its the truth. I would definitely recommend Steve to anyone in need of a lawyer!

We found Mr. Aarons to be very thorough, knowledgeable and experienced in the legal matter at hand. All office appointments were handled with the upmost professionalism by him and his legal assistant, and his ability to represent the case in court was outstanding. Moreover, his ease of conversation with us was much appreciated as it facilitatated a clear understanding about the proceedings.

Stephen Aarons is absolutely amazing! I am active duty in the military and I was charged with a Federal Drug Conspiracy charge in which I was facing a minimum of 10 years in prison to life. From day one Steve proved to be knowledgeable about all aspects of the law. He seemed like a "fish in the water" while in court because he was always prepared and believed in me and my innocence. Even though I live 3,000 miles away from his office, it felt as if I live 1 block away from him because I was always in the "loop" and he was always there to answer my questions and put me at ease. He even went as far as to hire a private investigator on my behalf, to assist in finding the truth and drove to another state to meet me when obtaining evidence about my case. Steve was able to get the Indictment against me dismissed BEFORE trial. He is the absolute best. I have used 3-5 attorneys in the past and he is by far the best-Hands down. Not to mention his staff is courteous and very friendly. I would highly endorse him. He has given me my life back. Thanks Steve, I owe you!

Steve did a great job with my case. I had the potential of spending up to 3 years in jail. By the time we finished, I am on unsupervised probation for 6 months with a settlement that is only 10% of what we thought it might be. He is respected by his peers in the courthouse and it has an affect on how his cases are treated. I hope I never have to, but if I need a lawyer in Santa Fe, It's Steve every time.

The base commander convened a court martial because my urine tested positive for cocaine while on flight status. I found Colonel Aarons on avvo.com. He kept my TDS lawyer to help, and hired two expert witnesses. It was a difficult trial but when the smoke had cleared I was found not guilty. He saved my military career!

I could lose my job with a DWI conviction. Asked around hired Aarons. He got my DWI dismissed after one year of probation. The judge threw out the reckless driving to boot. 2 Thumbs Up!

My 17 year old got mixed up in a serious crime. A lot of the lawyers do not take juvy cases and we found out later that our first lawyer had no other juvy cases - it showed. Finally a lawyer for one of the other boys in the case reccomended Mr. Arrons. He explained things so we understood and talked the DA out of adult court. Our son ended up with probation and if he does everything he won't even have a juvy record!

As the executor, I retained Steve for a complicated estate case involving two other law firms, a bank, an insurance company and several recipients. He did an excellent job of coordinating and negotiatng with all parties while defending the estates' interest. He kept me informed and was always responsive. It took four years but Steve never waivered and we won the case. Highly recommended!

Stephen D. Aarons represented my son. Mr. Aarons did an outstanding job of keeping us informed of all data relating to the cases. Mr. Aarons is extremely good at electronic communications, which worked best for me. Being informed and getting copies of all case-related paperwork was essential to know what was going on and where we were in the case. Mr. Aarons is easy to work with and we always felt comfortable meeting with him and his staff.

I felt trapped. I had lost hope. Now I sleep again, thanks to Steve Aarons.
Steve Aarons is an effective criminal attorney, familiar with the intrinsics of the judicial system. His timely responses are highly professional. Steve Aarons will listen and he understands the plight of the comon man caught up in our judicial system. Steve Aarons is invaluable and flexible. Above all, he is dedicated and accessible.
For more than one year I have been involved with the Magistrate Court and the District Court, both in San Miguel county, and I had nearly lost my faith. Steve Aarons has given me a new lease on life.
I can highly recommend Steve Aarons to anyone in need of professional counsel.

Steve is a top the line lawyer. Tell you what it is how it is and will not bullshit you one bit.I had a death penalty case and it was not looking good then Steve dug in and got to work and I have been free for a couple years because of him. I could not have asked of any more from a lawyer then what Steve Aarons gave me quick and kept me informed even when I was locked up. Made sure I was okay and informed my family as well......if you need a attorney that will give his all I strongly reccommond Steve Aarons.

We hired him for our son who was in jail. He worked hard to get our son out of jail and got the charges dismissed after several court dates.
