So glad that our paths crossed. Aaron's actions in the court room rekindled my belief in the justice system. He was a calculated thinker and a compassionate attorney. He will be missed. Sincerest condolences to the family.

Aaron was a great attorney and a great man. I was a client of his and literally saved my life. I can honestly say that I would never have met my beautiful wife, had the opportunities that i have had to change my life, and be where i am at today, if it were not for him. He will be missed but never forgotten.

A good lawyer and a good man. We picked up our mail at the Arcade Post Office just about the same time each day for many years. He always greeted me with a friendly smile and a hello.
