“Aaron Pierce is hands down one of the best attorneys I have worked with in New York since moving here a few years ago to open a TV and theater production company.  I had necessarily taken time to meet with many lawyers, interview them, and discuss a plethora of issues before deciding to join forces with Aaron and his team.  His advice and guidance is immeasurable, his intrepid way with words is strong and clear, and his knowledge of the arts and entertainment industry is key for my business right now.  Besides the entertainment industry, Aaron has knowledge in many other fields, and I would highly recommend his work. “
