Aaron was beyond helpful in securing my first licensing deal as a musician. He answered every single one of my emails promptly and with great advice. I will be employing his services for any of my legal needs in the future!

Aaron is an awesome lawyer! He was very professional, friendly, responsive, encouraging, and motivating. He helped me with a case and he took care of it immediately. I was so impressed with his work ethics and how he handled my case, I cannot wait to continue to work with him again. I have spoken to other lawyers and no one compares to Aaron and none of them were helpful or friendly at all. I am glad he took the time to get to know me and work with me. I highly recommend Aaron, he's an amazing individual.
