  • Randy T. Enochs

    Aaron is an incredible reliable, knowledgeable and hard-working attorney that I often consult with on labor and employment matters, and, on occasion, worker's compensation matters (I don't handle many worker's comp matters). In addition to being a great attorney, Aaron is also very friendly, helpful and passionate about his work and his clients.
