Skilled attorney, reliable and get's results!
Mr. Aaronson responded to our query regarding our HOA issue courteously and respectfully. We initially tried to resolve our issue over a three-month period with our HOA and the property management company with NO SUCCESS. The HOA and property management company continued to stall and ignored the required arbitration process outlined in the CCR’s. When Mr. Aaronson filed our complaint in court, the HOA and the property management company settled our demand for payment. To our great satisfaction, we settled for the amount we originally paid plus attorney fees. There is no question that this settlement would NOT have been possible had it not been for the expertise of Mr. Aaronson. We highly recommend using Mr. Aaronson and thank him for his assistance!

I want to express my gratitude to Mr Aaronson and Dylan. Trusting is always my biggest issues, especially when money is involved. Mr Aaronson and Dylan was very kind to put up with my panicked situation and constantly reassured me to trust them and that everything will go as planned. Yesterday they delivered what the promised. The office always takes their client’s interest to heart and keep their words and incredibly honest. They are totally trustworthy! Thank you again Mr Aaronson and Dylan!

Professional and efficient
I was referred to Mr. Aaronson through by a colleague. At the time I was in the middle of a 2+ year civil litigation and was very unhappy with my current attorney. After switching to Mr. Aaronson everything changed. Opposing council started taking the case more seriously and it was successfully resolved within a year. Even though his hourly rate was far higher than my previous attorney, he worked very efficiently and was incredibly fair with his billing. I truly believe I saved a ton of money overall switching to his firm. The old saying you get what you pay for is very true. I highly recommend his firm.

So Impressed! ...and such a great guy!
My wife and I had an extremely complex and challenging situation with a plaintiff and his attorney that was headed to litigation. We were informed that our house was being targeted as a means of a settlement. As a result, our situation was weighing mightily on our family. I spent hours upon hours contacting and speaking with numerous attorneys including some representing very large firms. One attorney told me “Wow, you’re in a real pickle,” another said, “That is a really tough situation to be in”. We attempted to find a resolution through representation who thought they could help us. Then I was told that the plaintiff’s attorney was unreasonable and very difficult to deal with. Ultimately, they were not able to make any progress. When I spoke with Art, I could immediately tell that he was different. I noticed that he was a great listener. He was compassionate and clearly wanted to find the best resolution possible for us. I loved his approach from the very beginning and we always knew that he was in our corner throughout the entire process. With his impressive people skills and tremendous legal knowledge, Art was able to masterfully negotiate a settlement that worked for us. We are so appreciative of the job that Art did. We highly recommend him to anybody that needs strong representation. He did an amazing job for us and we will always be extremely thankful. Thank you so much, Art!

Terrific Attorney!!!
Bought a house in DTLA only to discover all previous work had been done without permits. Art helped us to recover money from the Title Company, the seller, and both realtors so that we could make all of the repairs required by Code Enforcement. If it hadn't been for his hard work and dedication, we would've ended up paying literally hundreds of thousands of dollars out-of-pocket, which was money we did not have to spend. Not only did he save us financially, but his calm demeanor and timely responses really helped de-escalate emotions as well. I always knew we could count on him to do the right thing at the right time. I would hire him again in a heartbeat.

Arthur Aaronson-Real Estate Aficionado Attorney
I came to Mr. Aaronson with a Real Estate and Trust dispute with a family member. Mr. Aaronson analyzed the lawsuit issues, and was able to settle my case within a reasonable amount of time, and for a reasonable amount of funds. He was able to negotiate a settlement in less than five months. Mr. Aaronson's representation involved a step by step process, with the opposing attorneys. He was able to communicate with opposing counsel, in numerous factual exchanges, paving the path to presentation of my facts and case. He came to a fruition with opposing counsel, settling with opposing counsels facts and my facts to a reasonable conclusive settlement of the case. He also is a caring, calm, attentive attorney who listened to my concerns. Arthur Aaronson is an effective, experienced, tenacious, and competent attorney. I highly recommend Mr. Aaronson for your legal issues/disputes.

Super Fast, Efficient, and no Over Selling
Had a great experience with Art. He did exactly what he wanted (not before giving us advice first), very fast and direct. One of the things I noticed with other lawyers was that they always try to oversell things. Not the case with Art. While I admit that is important for the client to know the repercussions of any action, there are a lot of attorney that either scare the clients away or overcharge them. The agreement we had with Art made us feel safe yet didn't break our bank either. Thanks Mr. Aaronson!

Probate Nightmares ... He Kicked @ss!
My Uncle passed away and his live in Girlfriend made this a nightmare. Wouldn't grant access, wouldn't move, stole most of his items, tried to sell his Autos, House etc. Claimed she was Putitive spouse, fake Will, fake Bill of Sales, wrote Check fraud etc. Arthur came thru on all of it. He was a Beast in court in his knowledge and expertise. Made the other lawyer look stupid and dumb-founded many times. (At one time I thought the other lawyer was going to cry as he was so 'un-prepared'.) Aaronson was not cheap but well worth the money and He didn't nickle and dime me on everything. I would use him again and again. I trusted in the court system and Aaronson and we prevailed!!!(4/2018).

Effective, reasonable, easy to talk to
I had the opportunity to engage Art for a dispute I had regarding a employment separation agreement. Art worked with me to develop a strategy to get the company to the table and provide a more acceptable separation agreement. I found Art a very good listener and very capable negotiator. I would definitely use Art again.

He's for the people
I was looking for a good Entertainment Lawyer near my area. I spoke to a few over the phone that had good reviews as well. Once I ended up speaking to Arthur. He totally understood me in my decisions making, as other attorneys were recommending me to go through other unnecessary steps that are more costly. He totally made my trademark transaction extremely easy and fast. He is also skilled in many other different categories in law. Reading that he has over 42 experience always helps. I highly recommend you call/visit Art. He's for the people, and takes his time to hear us out.

Real Estate Attorney Extrodinaire
Mr. Aaronson helped me a great deal with advise on buying and maintaining real estate. He helped me in determining value, reviewing all agreements, and contracts. He worked seamlessly with real estate brokers, and sellers. He knows how to interface with city and county government. He also did a great job representing me in litigation. He has also handled Trademark, and Copyright matters for me.

Best Results Ever
For all of you that have had mediocre or negative interactions or results from an attorney, I suggest you use Mr. Aaronson. I have used him for our company and whether as plaintiff or defendant, we have prevailed. Some of the cases were uphill battles against giants and Mr. Aaronson was successful each and every time. We even prevailed against a foreign bank where we were clearly out-maned. Another recent case was against one of the largest companies in the US and were victorious in proving Breach and Negligence. The point is you do not need the law firm with 240 lawyers. You only need a smart, savvy one that believes in treating clients with compassion and devotion. When your attorney cares about you, your chances increase in succeeding with your case. Knowing there is someone that is talented and compassionate gives me both personally and from a business perspective the reassurance needed to know I have the necessary protection in this litigious world. There is a clear element of security in knowing there is someone to rely on when trouble arises. If you are looking for someone to handle a problem for the first time or if you are frustrated having dealt with the typical attorney where getting feedback, returned calls or successful outcomes has been a problem I would highly recommend Arthur Aaronson.

Amazing Lawyer most of all Amazing person
There was a temp. Restraining Order taken out on me without my knowledge, when I got to know about this I consulted many lawyers about this matter, every single lawyer I went to, felt like they didn't care about my case at all and prolonged it, I feel blessed I ran into Arthur through Avvo, spoke on the phone and he was extremely nice, I went to meet him he took time to hear me out and actually cared about my case, analysed it and gave me different strategies towards my case which no one else did and to be honest I was very nervous as nothing like this has ever happened to me, he took his time just to make me feel at ease. His approach was just amazing he looked into every bits of details in the case and remembered everything which was amazing. And the final outcome was all the false allegations were dissmissed against me all thankful to Arthur on knowing how to handle the case out of his experiences, wish I could give him 10 stars but this only lets me give 5, the rest of the 5 stars just for being a amazing nice person, thank you for everything Arthur, I highly recommend him to anyone his not some ordinary lawyer you would find out there, his punctual and on time for everything , extremely reliable , well experienced, well organized and remembers every single detail of he case and his presence makes you feel at ease, I'm thankful to avvo that I found such a amazing lawyer.
