A practiced litigator, before entering the world of bankruptcy, Aaron was a practicing criminal defense attorney; first with a small practice in Santa Cruz and Monterey counties, and then joining the Fresno Public Defender's Office. In Fresno, Aaron regularly spent three to five days a week in court, taking cases to trial before juries and fighting for his clients.
After leaving Fresno, he clerked in the Northern District of California, Bankruptcy Court, for the Honorable Arthur S. Weissbrodt, to get a perspective of what life is like "behind the bench." That led to joining a local bankruptcy firm, where he managed all aspects of multiple bankruptcy cases, working with clients to get themselves back up on their feet.
I started this practice with a simple goal - to be responsive to my clients, and aware of what they are seeking to accomplish. Too often, it is easy to lose track of what really matters - a bankruptcy, or a will, a trust - those are all just tools to help you accomplish what your goals are.
So often, people lose track of the big picture because they are overwhelmed by what is going on around them, be it wage garnishments, collection notices, or simple harassment. As an attorney, I like to be able to step back and help my client see the big picture, so that when our job is done, they are in the best shape possible to move forward and enjoy their lives.
