"I'm an independent contractor and I helped a company with some engineering and design work, and the company refused to pay me. I'd never been through something like that before, and I was referred to Aaron by a friend. I'm so glad. I wasn't sure what to do or if I would be able to get anything. I didn't want to go through a lawsuit. Aaron was great. With his help, I was paid everything I was owed, and all without having to file a lawsuit! I highly recommend Aaron for your legal needs."

"Aaron helped my partner and I create an LLC for a new business, and also drafted an Operating Agreement for the LLC so that my partner and I had all of our ownership rights on paper. We had no idea what we needed to do to get this done, and Aaron walked us through every step. He was friendly, responsive, and helped us to get this done on a short time frame. We really appreciate his help and will certainly continue to use Aaron for our other business needs."
