Aaron earned his undergraduate degree from West Point, where he graduated in the top 10% of his class while playing on the baseball team. He started his Army career as a helicopter and fixed-wing pilot and then attended law school at Texas Tech through the Army’s highly selective funded legal education program. At Texas Tech, Aaron served as Editor-in-Chief of the law review, graduated first in his class, and was inducted into the Order of the Coif. Thereafter, he returned to active duty and earned a Bronze Star for his service as a lawyer in Afghanistan. Aaron then entered private practice as a litigator trying dozens of consumer product jury trials. Since then, he has litigated cases throughout the United States and is frequently sought out by colleagues, peers, and former opposing counsel for his expertise in litigation and trial advocacy. He is well-known as an attorney who consistently delivers excellent results for clients while keeping their business interests at the forefront of all matters.

As a former prosecutor and military officer, Aaron devotes a substantial portion of his time to pro bono work, including the representation of victims of sexual assault and their families, as well as Veterans.
