"Being a trial lawyer is much like being a teacher, only our students are the jury and judge."

Having grown up in the outdoors, Aaron knows how a fun and successful fishing trip can affect body, mind, and spirit for the better. In recent years his affinity for fly fishing has gone from pastime to passion. He even has a fly fishing blog full of great articles and photographs for amateurs and experienced fly fishers alike.
