He has extensive experience throughout Ohio and West Virginia on various issues related to the development of the Marcellus and Utica Shale region. Aaron’s practice focuses primarily on oil and gas pipeline litigation, oil and gas lease/ownership litigation and other energy-specific transactional matters involved in project development. He has served as counsel for national and international energy companies and energy generation facilities on multiple projects throughout Southeast Ohio.

In addition to his wide-reaching energy practice, Aaron also has considerable experience in general commercial litigation in both Ohio and West Virginia, including, but not limited to, insurance bad faith cases, real property-related cases, and personal injury-related cases.
