Hired Aaron to help defend a frivolous law suit. Gave him a retainer of which he said would go a long way given the particulars of the case. Most of the negotiations behind the scenes he was not present for due to some personal issues so he says and then when he was told a settlement was imminent due to our discussions he changed his tune. Received an invoice that was almost twice what he received as his retainer then proceeded to pressure me to file motions to "protect me" which he knew would never be needed and was just another way to pad his already OVER INFLATED bill. He took advantage of my lack of experience and knowledge navigating through the legal system only to increase and add fee on top of fee. He allowed the other party and his attorney to string out the process and was always being reactive and playing catch up to get closer and closer to discovery date. He then used this as a means to the filling of countless motions which again never were seen or reviewed by the judge nor were needed given the settlement confirmation several months before. I would not recommend this attorney to anyone unless a public defender is your alternative.

I had the pleasure to have Aaron assist in representing me in a very difficult case. He always kept me informed. He is very understanding and I would recommend him to anyone.

Shortly after we retained Aaron as our attorney we recognized what a terrific decision we made. He has the "fire in his belly" that it takes to make a truly remarkable attorney. He was incredibly resourceful, has a wealth of contacts, and knows the law like the back of his hand.
Aaron has worked for us a couple of times already, has gotten us out of a pinch, and has provided strong counsel. All this, plus he was financially savvy and worth every penny.
I strongly recommend Aaron, whether you need civil or criminal counsel.

Aaron is a wonderful lawyer who is very well respected by his peers and within the legal community. He is tenacious in fighting for his clients and his results show it. I've had the pleasure of working with Aaron on a couple matters and am always pleased to work with someone as knowledgable and prepared as he is. I endorse Aaron without reservation and whole heartedly recommend him to friends and family.
