About Aaron

Learn Aaron’s areas of practice.

Aaron Pomeranz is a long-time resident of Hampton Roads and attended Kempsville High School where he played catcher for the Chiefs. He attended William and Mary, continued to play baseball for the Tribe, and graduated in 1992 with a degree in Business Administration. After college, Aaron decided to pursue a career in public service and became a police officer with the Norfolk Police Department, graduating the police academy in 1993. While in the police academy, Aaron started working toward his master’s degree in Public Administration at Old Dominion University, which he completed in 1997. Throughout his almost-25 years in law enforcement, Aaron moved through the ranks in various assignments to include: the Detective Division, Vice and Narcotics, K-9, SWAT, and Homeland Security. As he neared retirement, Aaron knew that it was time to work toward the next step in his career and started attending law school locally at Regent University. He graduated from law school in 2016 while graduating in the top 20% of his class. Aaron retired from the police force on July 1, 2017, having obtained the rank of Captain, and started practicing law on the same day.

Like many in the area, Aaron was brought to Hampton Roads as a child due to his father's service in the military. He grew up in Virginia Beach and then went to college at William and Mary. After graduating, he returned home and worked in law enforcement for almost twenty five years before starting to practice law. He finds his experience in law enforcement not only benefits his clients when he defends them for criminal offenses, but also benefits his representation of all clients who find themselves in other difficult situations

Following law school, Aaron worked for a Tidewater law firm in a variety of roles, from serving as a Guardian ad-litem on custody matters and as court appointed counsel for indigent defendants, and practicing in the areas of family law, criminal defense, DUI, reckless driving and other traffic cases.

Since he began practicing law, Aaron had numerous cases with the attorneys at Park Zeigler and saw firsthand the professional and knowledgeable manner in which they handled their cases and complicated legal matters. When offered the opportunity to join the firm, he couldn’t pass it up. Aaron looks forward to being able to provide his clients outstanding service at Parks Zeigler for many years to come.

Aaron, his wife, Sara, and their five children reside in Chesapeake, Virginia. Aaron and Sara’s children all participate in extracurricular activities, to include soccer, gymnastics, and crew. Aaron and his family enjoy trips to the Outer Banks several times a year where they get to spend time with extended family. Religion plays a big part in their life and they attend and serve at River Oak Church in Chesapeake. In the last few years, Aaron and Sara have opened their home and hearts to foster children from a local department of social services. When Aaron isn’t being a lawyer, husband, and father, he enjoys rooting for the New York Yankees, exercising, and doing construction projects around his house.

Phenomenal Attorney!!!
Aaron is an excellent attorney! He showed up to court on time and well prepared. I was blown away by how eloquently he spoke on my case, breaking down the key points in which were important to me. He has shown that all of his experience is extremely valuable, he made his opposing counsel look like an amateur. In the end, I received custody of my kids and the outcome I've wanted. If you are looking for an excellent attorney! Please look no further, Aaron is the man for the job!!!

Excellent attorney!
I recently finished with very contentious custody battle with my ex. I was looking for an attorney who is not only proficient, but is not easily bullied in the courtroom. This was extremely important for my case and Aaron was highly recommended for this reason. He did not disappoint. There were many times that he was needed, and Aaron always came through. He was very accessible and always responded to my many emails. Aaron is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to family law and told me what to expect each step of the way. He was upfront from the beginning and never made any empty promises to keep me happy, but was realistic about potential results. When it was time for court, Aaron showed up well prepared and ready to go. Ultimately things were resolved in my case, but I was impressed with his preparation, attention to detail, and professionalism. This was one of the most stressful times in my life, but having Aaron representing me took that weight off my shoulders. I am glad I had such a dependable lawyer to navigate me through this process. If you are looking for an attorney who is extremely proficient and has your back, look no further. I would 100% recommend Aaron for any legal needs!

Knowledgable and Efficient
Aaron was efficient, professional and personable. He lifted a huge weight off of my shoulders and most importantly got my daughter back in my arms. I will most certainly be retaining him in the near future for trail. Highly recommend!

Amazing Lawyer and Friend
Upon meeting Aaron I was skeptical of hiring a lawyer for my custody case. But once I sat down with Aaron for our consultation he was nothing but amazing. For once I met a lawyer that was not judging me he talked to me like a friend would. Aaron went above and beyond with keeping in contact and assisting me every step of the way. Upon our court dates Aaron was phenomenal not only was he able to get my child support payments finalized but I was able to receive more than I thought possible. Aaron was also able to prove without Reasonable Doubt that my ex was unstable and unfit parent providing me with sole physical and legal custody. When waiting to go before the judge unlike other lawyers Aaron was sitting outside the courtroom with me the entire time keeping me in conversation relaxed and laughing a little silly jokes. Aaron felt more like a friend somebody that I can trust and confide in then a stuffy lawyer who is only out to get your money. Even after our case was done and closed Aaron still kept in contact to follow up with me to make sure that both myself and my daughter were doing good. I have told all of my friends and family if you ever need a lawyer Aaron is a person to hire. I will be hiring Aaron again within the very near future to assist and work his magic for my husband to be able to adopt my daughter.

Endorse Aaron
General practice Attorney | Jan 29
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Aaron is a consummate professional with a straightforward and refreshing approach to litigation. While other attorneys will often bend over backwards to contest every point regardless of its value, Aaron fights only those battles that need to be fought to advocate for his client. If more attorneys used Aaron's approach, far more cases would reach trial on their merits without needless cost and delay. I wholeheartedly endorse this lawyer for any client seeking competent representation without the usual expensive and unnecessary posturing."
