Aaron is smart, capable, and genuinely cares about his clients' well-being. On several occasions I've been impressed by his "outside-the-box" approach to addressing a sensitive issue when a more conventional approach wasn't working. If you're considering hiring counsel for a matter that's within their area of expertise, Aaron and his partner Leigh Chandler should definitely be on your short list.
