Before becoming a Certified Specialist in Family Law, Aaron served as Senior Assistant County Counselor for the Sedgwick County, Kansas Counselor's Office where he provided legal advice and representation to elected and appointed officials, defending the County's interests, and prosecuting violations of all County resolutions in the County Court.  Prior to that, Aaron maintained a general law practice with his father in Wichita, Kansas.

When he isn't practicing law and spending time with his family, Aaron loves to participate in sports. He was on the All-City soccer team in high school, was a 4-year letterman on the varsity soccer team in college (including All-Conference and All-District recognition), and spent many years volunteering as a youth soccer coach. He also loves pickleball, racquetball, skiing, and hiking - especially in Colorado, where he loves to go during the summer.

You won't find anyone better prepared for court hearings, and one of the special skills he brings to the table as a family lawyer is exceptional writing ability.  Aaron won two Top Paper awards while in law school -- the best in his class.

Aaron grew up in Kansas and graduated from Friends University in Wichita, where he was a 4-year President's Scholar.  He received his degree in Business Administration and History.  Aaron earned his J.D. degree from Washburn University School of Law in Topeka.  He then went on to get his LL.M. in Taxation from the University of Denver School of Law.  Aaron is admitted to practice in three states -- Arizona, Colorado, and Kansas.

This is the guy you want in your corner
I’ve spent the better part of the last decade in and out of court for my family law case. My case was very complicated and extremely delicate. I’ve gone through several lawyers over the years and never have I ever had the experience I had with Aaron. He was recommended to me by a very close family member who had hired him previously for his own custody case and was extremely satisfied with his experience. Throughout my entire lengthy process Aaron and his paralegal Laura were forthright and professional to the highest degree. I never felt a dime was wasted on trivial agenda like so many lawyers i had experienced before. Aaron and Laura helped me save my daughters childhood and I could not be more grateful for the extreme level of care they showed in working my very complicated case. I will always recommend Aaron to anyone and everyone that is ever in need of the very best representation you can possibly find. Honest, Genuine, and no BS . I could not have asked for more , these people gave us our lives back and I am forever grateful.

Cool, calm, collected and experienced
Aaron (and his paralegal, Laura) helped me navigate a very tough high-conflict divorce case that is probably in the outliers of family law. It spanned 5 years and involved numerous false allegations of abuse, a no-contact restraining order, supervised visitation, a court appointed advisor, a comprehensive family evaluation, a therapeutic interventionist, safe haven therapists for the children, and relocation orders. Aaron helped me navigate these issues with skill and his "no nonsense" approach was incredibly helpful. Many times, the opposing counsel (of which there were numerous) would try "dirty tricks" to hamper our case, but Aaron never responded in-kind. During the trials, Aaron was not afraid to get aggressive when the situation warranted, and used his superior knowledge of case law to present compelling arguments. As a result, the judges working the case looked on our positions very favorably and I could not be happier with the results. Aaron and Laura were an amazing team and helped me keep focused and aware of possible outcomes while the wheels of justice slowly turned. They never seemed frustrated or annoyed by my many phone calls and questions, and were always very responsive to me. I would highly recommend Aaron and his team to anyone going through a high-conflict divorce.

The BEST Family Law Attorney!
As far as Aaron Blase goes for an Attorney, there is no other Attorney. I have had three other attorneys and nobody has come close in being able to handle my case. Aaron handled my personal situation and case with skill, expertise and extreme knowledge. I retain Aaron for Family Law and I keep him onboard due to my extenuating circumstances and have had him for years now. My ex and I have one child in common and my child was conceived out of rape but born out of love. My ex sued for custody and got it due to the lack of laws in Arizona protecting me in this regard with no conviction. I utilize Aaron as a buffer against my ex due to Protective Orders, being in the Arizona Address Confidentiality Program, different types of hearings, trials and even upholding my Order of Protection when my ex would try to fight it. I had my two older children on this Order of Protection against this ex that were not related but they needed protection from him. This all tied into my Family Court Case but in different branches so to speak. Aaron helped me in getting Emergency Orders in Family Court for Temporary Sole Legal Custody of my child due to the abuse and neglect from my ex. Eventually we were going to Trial. Aaron will tell you directly what the laws are and if it could stand behind you, but he also plays devils advocate to show you how it could play out. He will never give you false hope or any predictions. As I was told, he does not have a crystal ball. The preparation for Trial, both his paralegal Laura and Aaron are nothing short of amazing. He spent a lot of time preparing for my Trial. At Trial, Aaron hits all major points, nothing more and nothing less and of course it’s due to the time constraints of the Courts. Aaron didn’t need to call my ex a liar, but he simply did it by only presenting the evidence, testimony, paper trails and he did not leave any holes or any stone unturned. I was blown away in court on how Aaron pieced everything together and presented my case. Aaron was a rockstar in Court! Aaron went above and beyond not only representing me but my child too. In sense of the word “in best interest of the child” Aaron nailed it in my book. Aaron spoke up for a minor child who does not have a voice and this was solely based on the evidence. My words cannot express how brilliant Aaron truly is. A brilliant but humble man. Laura, I cannot say enough about her. She is sharp, efficient and her attention to detail is outstanding. A very caring lady and she is invested in you. She knows you, your story and I’ve cried and vented to her and she truly listens. She genuinely takes the time to hear you. After I hang up with her, I feel so much better and I’m able to continue about my day because I know they are handling it. My words and gratitude cannot express how grateful I am for Aaron Blase. I feel safe knowing he is my attorney and I told him he is my attorney forever. I laughed telling him “aren’t you lucky!”

Professional, knowledgable, and trustworthy!
In a time of complete chaos and stress, Aaron helped me navigate through one of the most difficult times of my life. Never having been involved in a legal matter, I was very afraid. Aaron was referred to me by a friend and I am so happy that I chose him to represent me in my custody battle. Aaron always kept me informed with every matter in my case and was quick to respond when I had questions. Aaron was a blessing to find as well as his paralegal, Laura, who was always so supportive during such a hard time. I never wanted my situation to come to be what it was, but I couldn't be happier with the outcome thus far. I have felt very protected by my attorney as he always has his clients best interest above all. Aaron really cares about his clients and works hard to get the best outcomes possible. I will definitely be using Aaron again if any issues are to arise in the future.

Light at the end of the tunnel!
Aaron walked through the whole process with me. He explained who, what, when, how and even the maybe situations with me. Often he was available for me to talk to throughout the day. Aaron made sure I was properly prepared for each appointment. He never made me feel that my questions were insignificant. Aaron is personable, professional and it appears that law comes naturally to him. He is aggressive when needed. I highly recommend Aaron!

Aaron Blase at SDSFamilylaw
Aaron was professional, extremely knowledgeable about military law, and focused on my issues which made me feel confident in his abilities. He worked hard and was dedicated to helping me win my case. The results were fantastic. I would highly recommend Aaron and the law firm for any legal needs. Personal attention was given to me by all staff and I always felt as though they were concerned for my well-being.

Making a tough situation a little easier
Divorce especially with children is never easy but Aaron listened to my concerns and helped me attain the best outcome possible. There were many times that I was competely stressed out with my husband's lawyers tactics and Aaron would listen to my concerns, calm me down and handle my case professionally. I highly recommend him to anyone needing a family law lawyer.

We Wouldn't Have Made It Without Aaron
I had a tough case, Aaron told me that from our first meeting. He told me It was going to be an uphill battle and there was a chance that we wouldn't win. It's like that in most relocation cases but even more so when you are relocating out of the country. Aaron and his team gave us superior legal advice and kept us informed and prepared every step of the way. Aaron did a fabulous job during our hearing, and despite this being THE toughest case our Judge had ever had since he had been on the bench (those were the Judge's exact words) the Judge ruled in our favor. I am certain that the reason why we won was because Aaron knew which parts of the law to underline in our case, and those points Aaron made in court ended up being the deciding factors in the Judes decision. I can't imagine going through this without Aaron, and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a knowlegable, responsive, and caring attorney.

Divorce not so pretty
Aaron and his staff guided me through a divorce made hostile by the opposing party. Through out the whole process Aaron and his team were timely and responsive to all my needs. The outcome was reasonable and consistent with his predictions.

Little effort, lots of money wasted, poor results.
Exhibited little to no empathy to me as a client. Just didn’t seem to have the drive to fight for me, or my child. Missed correspondences, deadlines and responses due to opposing counsel ahead of important pre-trial dates, and put me in a very difficult position, an extreme disadvantage going in to trial. Eventually parted ways but after spending tens of thousands of dollars.
