I had the pleasure of being the opposing counsel in a case against a party who was represented by Attorney Edidiong Aaron. It is rare that I say this about an opposing counsel, but Attorney Aaron certainly gave me a run for my money! She was thoroughly prepared each time we went to court, was professional both inside and outside the courtroom while still aggressively advocating for her client, and was a legal eagle when it came to her knowledge of the case laws and statutes. She certainly kept me on my toes! I have the utmost respect for Attorney Aaron and her practice of the law. Any client who hires her is guaranteed to get more than what they paid for. Any opposing counsel who has to face Attorney Aaron will be in for a rude awakening if they are even the slightest unprepared! Attorney Aaron brings the meaning back to true advocacy, which is rare to find in attorneys these days.
