    I have known Aaron for several years and can say that he is a highly skilled criminal defense attorney. He is an extremely knowledgable and very hardworking advocate who truly cares about his clients. His negotiation skills are second to none and he leaves no stone unturned in his preparation. Finally, he also possesses the unique ability to present a case at trial in a highly organized and persuasive manner. I have seen him work miracles in the courtroom, and give him my highest endorsement.
