About Aaron
Q&A
  • What type of matters do you work on most often?

    I primarily work on matters before the Texas Legislature and executive agencies. These matters can range from monitoring legislation and regulatory decisions that affect clients, to drafting bills and amendments, to creating a strategic plan for the passage of a specific piece of legislation. I also work a number of appropriations issues and frequently counsel clients on specific budget items and the budget process.

  • What do you find most exciting about your work?

    The ability to build and maintain relationships, along with strong communication skills, are key aspects to effective advocacy, and I enjoy sharpening and sharing those skills as an adjunct professor teaching Negotiation at The University of Texas Law.
