Aaron grew up in the South and moved to Oregon in 2008 with his wife Crystal to attend Willamette University College of Law and pursue a legal career as a public defender. Aaron received a public interest fellowship for the summer of 2009 that allowed him to begin working for the Public Defender of Marion County, where he was hired as an attorney in 2011. In 2014, Aaron moved to Bend to join Crabtree & Rahmsdorff as public defender in Deschutes County.
Aaron has also served as a co-lobbyist for the Oregon Criminal Defense Lawyers Association in 2013, as a member of the Oregon State Bar Criminal Jury Instruction Committee from 2014-2017, and as a member of the OCDLA Legislative Committee since 2013.
Aaron has witnessed the positive impact of Deschutes Family Recovery firsthand through clients who have entered and successfully completed Family Drug Court. Aaron enjoys working to help other families succeed in recovery by serving as a Board Member and Auction Committee Chairperson for Deschutes Family Recovery.
In his free time, Aaron spends as much time as he can with his family and enjoys camping and exploring the natural beauty of Oregon with Crystal and their two kids.
