For more than 30 years, Aaron's practice has centered around large and complex commercial, residential and mixed use real estate projects throughout Central Florida. He is often involved in site selection, drafting contracts, and due diligence and is lead counsel in the procurement of Developments of Regional Impact (DRIs), transit-oriented development, comprehensive plan designations, zonings and other governmental approvals and entitlements. He also formulates public/private partnerships, and takes a lead role in the development, financing and leasing of projects.
Most often, though, he finds himself in the role of an all-around trusted advisor to some of Central Florida's largest developers and philanthropists. "It's a role that I am completely comfortable with," says Aaron. "I have always been committed to the success and development of my clients," he continues, "putting their agendas before my own. I try to do more listening than talking, so that I know what issues and concerns keep them awake at night." It is that allegiance to his clients that has contributed to Aaron's numerous recognitions -- and the foundation for the relationships he has developed. He not only provides perspective and encouragement in his clients' business ventures, he enjoys spending time with his clients. "I believe that my clients' trust extends beyond doing good work," Aaron explains. "It is a deeper, broader trust that is based on both professional competence and personal relationships, and I am forever grateful for that trust."
