Aaron Black Reviews



I have never written a review on anything, ever. But I am compelled to write one for Mr. Aaron Black. A few months ago, I ran (drove) into some trouble. After going through the emotions of the ordeal, I began reviewing lawyers, like many of you are doing now, and came across Aaron Black. I decided to retain him for my legal representation, and I was extremely happy I did. Mr. Black was always available when you need him and provides pertinent answers. He was able to get many of my charges dropped, and the one I plead to was the minimum. My 1 year suspension was dropped and he argued successfully reducing my hours in jail. He definitely knows his stuff. I hope this review serves you all well, as I relied heavily on reviews in my selection process. But one thing I will say, go with Aaron Black, you'll be thankful you did. Annonymous
I remember the day I called Aaron. He picked up the call right away and was willing to listen to my case. After he allowed me to ramble on, he gave me his professional opinion, I agreed to hire him, and it was only then that he told me he was on vacation. I appreciated that he took the time to review my case during his time off.

Aaron was in constant contact with me (by phone and in writing) discussing and explaining the details of my case as they were released. Aaron always called at least a day before a court hearing to go over the details with me again. Being as nervous as I was he made me feel very comfortable. He never missed a beat when he talked about the laws in my city, the processes of the MVD and the court system. He explained them with ease and with a confidence that assured me that he knew what he was doing.

As my case wrapped up he told me he would continue to be available and talk me through the rest of my obligations.

I would hire him again, no hesitation! Professional and Highly Knowledgeable, Accessible

I think its pretty uncommon to find the same thing being said about one person if it wasn't true. Everyone seems to agree that Mr. Black is the attorney you should use, and I agree completely.

Arizona laws are very strict and I like most folks on this site was stopped and was charged with DUI (1st Time Misdemeanor). I blew a .12 and my BAC was .149 according to my blood test. Not much I could do, and Aaron advised me as such. He told me to complete my classes and what to do before our court case to look the best to the court. I plead guilty and was given credit for my night in jail as time served and he suspended the other 9 days. All in all, not a bad experience.

Like everyone has mentioned, Aaron personally gets back to you immediately. He follows up relentlessly, and reminds you of anything that you may have to do or comply with. He knew everyone in court and seems well liked by everyone, even the judge. You don't need to hire a brutally expensive lawyer when you can get the best for a reasonable price. Hire him!

So I guess I had to much fun and made a bad decision. Aaron made sure I never felt like a criminal. He always dealt with me personally and effectively. He did the most he could and Drastically reduced my DUI sentence. I felt like everyone else was against me... the judge...the cops...but it was OK cause I had Aaron. I felt that he was always available even when I knew my questions where monotonous. Hiring Aaron was the best decision I made.

I had some trouble with the law, and was looking for an attorney to help me and my family through all of the court processes. Aaron Black went above and beyond to help us out. He advised and backed us through the whole case and helped us interpret the legal jargon that we would probably overlook. He is very knowledgeable and cares about his clients very much. If I ever have a friend in the future that needs an attorney, I know exactly who I'm going to recommend.

Aaron is very knowledgeable on the law's regarding DUI offenses. He was always available whether for office visits or by telephone. Aaron did everything he could for me and got me the best results possible for my case. He was able to work with the court to accommodate my schedule and allow me to work through the whole process. I highly recommend Aaron Black. Thanks Aaron.

Like you I was searching for someone who could provide help, guidance, and most of all a defense. My 17 son was arrested with a DUI charge and I was very confused. The arresting officer down played the whole thing saying it was a mistake on my son's part but that he would learn from it and would move on. My son is a good kid and had never been involved in any trouble before. I was questioning the need for representation until I talked with friends who had been through a similar situation. After that conversation there was no doubt I neededhelp.

I did a lot of research before I called Attorney Black. Right from the start I felt comfortable with him. He was very clear in explaining what we were facing and answered every question we had. It was obvious he had a lot of experience and was well equipped to help us. Mr. Black was always available to me during the process. I called and texted during the evening, on weekends and even once at 5:30 am. It was amazing how quickly he responded. He worked around my schedule so I didn't have to take any time off from work.

Attroney Black spent an hour with the arresting officer and as a result uncovered details he used in negotiations with the Prosecutor. Mr. Black was able to get the charges reduced to reckless driving. What a relief. I was very happy with the outcome and would highly recommend Attorney Black to anyone who is facing a DUI charge. He has the practical experience, is very professional, and exceptionally accessible. There's no middle person to deal with. You get to talk with him directly each and every time.

Susanne, A DUI Client

Mr. Black was excellent in all regards! I was completely overwhelmed and emotionally devastated facing a DUI case. Not only was Mr. Black extremely knowledgeable, understanding, and helpful when I called for a consultation, but his fee was very affordable and competitive. He had a straightforward, no nonsense way of explaining the facts involved in my case, but always did so with compassion.

Throughout my case he kept me informed, answered any and all questions I had, and always made sure I was comfortable and understood the steps in the process. Mr. Black handled everything for me, which was a huge relief. And in the end I feel his work ethic and diligence got me the best possible outcome for my case! I would highly recommend Mr. Black to anyone!

Jason, A DUI Client

First of all, let me start off by saying that Aaron is the best Criminal Defense Attorney in Arizona!! From day one he answered his phone 24/7 for anything and everything my mother and I needed. I hired Aaron in February for my mom's DUI (she blew a .24) and in the State of Arizona that usually means you get to experience the wonderful hospitality of Sheriff Joe. The second I found out about had happened, I called Aaron Black immediately and he started working on her case. Needless to say, my mom and I never once worried about the outcome, he was honest, up-front, and made sure we were informed the entire way.

On June 24, 2013 my mom's DUI CHARGE WAS DIMISSED ALL THANKS TO ATTORNEY AARON BLACK!! He really put in the time and effort to show that the she-cop had no right in the first place to start a DUI investigation. Aaron worked this case to the bone and the most amazing part...my mom had no complaints and loved her attorney. Why? Because Aaron actually cares about his clients, works extremely hard, has a fierce presence in a Courtroom, and without his help and expertise my mom would be a resident of Tent City.

If you need an attorney Aaron is the one to call. I would recommend Aaron Black to anyone and everyone because he will put in the time your case deserves and will never leave you in the dark. Aaron Black saved my mom, made her realize what had happened was not alright, and fought for her when no one else would. No matter how many times I could thank him, its not enough because he is helped my family in more ways than one. Thank you for everything you have done and your efforts will never be forgotten! Aaron Black is the attorney to have my fellow Arizonians! I bet my mother’s life on it ;)

Kayli and Kim, DUI Clients

After being charged with a DUI, I contacted a litany of attorneys before I decided to go with Aaron. Most other attorneys lack the personal touch that Aaron brings. He's always accessible as there was never a time he wouldn't respond a phone-call or text-message. He's very thorough, always researching and strategizing. He handles a case from all angles, he even has a toxicologist to analyze blood-work if the case calls for it. With Aaron, I felt my mind at ease as he instilled confidence in me through his unwavering dedication.

Having worked with other attorneys in the past (not the first time I've had to go to court) I can honestly say nobody I've ever hired in the past came close to the level of dedication and attention to detail. Through his excellent work, my case was dismissed as he protected me from an unscrupulously long court process.
If you hire Aaron, rest assured that you are hiring a true professional and a real asset to both his profession and community.

A DUI Client

This was my first experience dealing with the law (outside of speeding tickets) and Aaron made it manageable. Taking an extremely stressful situation and making it doable is what he did for me. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone who needs someone to represent them. He’s not going to mess around; he takes your situation seriously. Beyond honest and upfront with me and was always being available was huge for me. You didn’t have to deal with an ‘office person,’ you talked to him directly. Didn’t matter how, phone, text, email, he was always quick to respond and would follow up with you after every step of the process. He kept me informed through every stage of dealing with a DUI especially with the nursing board and was realistic with me and supported my decisions.

He did it all, making arrangements so everything could be done quickly and in a timely manner. I can’t stress how important this was to me that he made a stressful situation a little less intense/stressful. I was so pleased that Aaron was always prepared for everything and anything. There wasn’t a situation he didn’t know how to handle or advise me on. But most importantly, he did everything he possibly could for me and my situation. Giving me options, the pros and cons of the situation without influencing me in any way but giving me the facts is what anyone would want and hope for in someone representing them.
Need a lawyer.. call Aaron! It would be the best decision you ever made!

Monica, A DUI Client

After doing intense research on the best lawyer to hire for my DUI charge, I contacted and met with Aaron Black. It didn't take me long to realize he was the lawyer I wanted to hire, and throughout the legal process, he continually went beyond my expectations to confirm I had made the right decision.

Aaron is a an absolute professional, while remaining completely approachable. He is incredibly responsive, providing me with his direct cell, and making it easy to contact him via phone, email, and text. He was always prompt to return any call, and would even text me if he was tied up in court to let me know he would call me back as soon as he was out. (No other lawyer I met with came close to the level of communication he provides). There were no secretaries I had to go through, or office extensions to dial. Aaron treated me like I was his only client, and I can't understate how much I appreciated that.

His knowledge and experienced track record speak for themselves. He knew the officer involved, the prosecuting attorney, and the judge. He made all the best recommendations for my course of action, and walked me through the process step by step. After one step was completed, he would follow up with an email outlining the next actions, who to contact, and what to expect.

It is no surprise that Aaron is rated as one of the "Super Lawyer Rising Star" and among the top attorneys in Arizona. He is passionate and dedicated to his clients, and I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking legal representation.

Nate C, A DUI Client

The reason I choose Aaron in the first place:

I choose Aaron because of the many reviews just like you I was looking for an excellent lawyer to handle my case. His credentials in the about him section of his website checked out and the way he helped me with two cases spoke for his work ethic and morality. I was looking for credentials, great reviews, communication, pricing of course,

Communication is Key:

Aaron is always on top of calling you back or answering his phone and even will provide you a time when he will not be available if you have to call him back the same day. He is great at emailing you back and providing you documents if you need them promptly.

Two Dui Cases:

Super Extreme DUI (Mesa Court, City Charge)

  1. I spoke to Aaron about my case and he told me the truth and details of what I was facing. I was facing an Super Extreme DUI without representation. I wanted to hire an attorney so it would get it reduced at least to an Extreme and Aaron did just that. Even though my case had everything against me he was able to get it reduced. Meanwhile, just to complicate matters worse I had an old DUI that decided to pick back up during the process.
     
  2. Extreme DUI (San Tan Justice) (Maricopa County Charge) - Now, we are facing two duis at the same time from a city and county jurisdiction. Aaron, advised me of the consequences depending on which one I decided to take as a first DUI and if the judge allowed for either or.

Aaron, is an amazing lawyer and this is why. He looked at the case and instead of being like most lawyers to take someones money. He let me know it would be best to try and represent myself and see what kind of deal I could work out. Which pretty much put thousands of dollars back into my pocket to pay the fines of course. He let me know if it's not favorable then we could re-evaluate.

It really came down to jail time deciding which to proceed with first. Of couse with detailed attention from Mr. Black. I even called him from court in the San Tan case after asking the Prosecutor if I could make a call. The prosecutor allow me to proceed with the call before making a final decision. Mesa City allows home detention and Maricopa does not. Although, I would have spent about 11 more days in jail and no home detention, I decide to trade those 11 days for 96 days home detention. It is the summer (hotter than hell) and so during those days I'll be able to save more money staying home anyways.

After my Case

He even asks how am doing with everything afterwards now. Aaron Black, goes out of his way to communicate with you and makes sure you are thoroughly knowledgeable of what you are facing and your options if any. If YOU or SOMEONE you know is looking for the right DUI Attorney to hire.........please call and speak with Aaron Black about your case first. Do yourself this favor and you will not be dissappointed.

MEET WITH HIM TO TALK ABOUT YOUR CASE FIRST BEFORE GOING TO THE HIGHLY ADVERTISED DUI ATTORNEYS LAW FIRMS WITH SECRETARY'S AND HIGH RISES.....AARON ANSWERS THE PHONE HIMSELF

The difference is having someone who you can contact directly anytime without talking to a secretary first. Even if he does not answer right then, you can bet he will not miss to call you right back.

Lee, A DUI Client

Aaron was great from start to finish. At the start explained everything I should expect and a timeline. He easy to get a hold of and if you leave a voicemail gets back to you quickly. I was kept up to date the whole time. Got my DUI case dropped, my civil ticket dropped and my MVD case dropped. Also handled notifying the nursing board for me of the charges against me and has continued to be the point of contact for them.

Aaron fought for me and got all my charges dismissed within 3 1/2 months. I highly recommend Aaron Black to anyone facing DUI charges. Polite, honesty, responsible and professional.

A DUI Client

First off I hired Aaron Black to defend me against an Extreme DUI, and drug charge (DWI). These charges were quite daunting to me because they were my first bout with the law, and carried a long sentence. When I first contacted Aaron he responded almost immediately, and once I hired him as my lawyer he was always easy to contact. Aaron continually updated me about my case, and was able to explain all my options thoroughly. In the end he was able to argue for a regular DUI and got my drug charge dropped, which was the best thing that could have happened for me in my situation. He made sure my case was expedite as possible, and laid out step by step what I had to do to get my life back together.

Thanks to Aaron I was able to quickly put this bad situation behind me, and move on with my life. Not only is Aaron an amazing lawyer, but he is also an amazing person who actually cares about his clients.

A DUI Client

Aaron was recommended to me by a mutual friend. I was extremely comfortable speaking with him and always knew that he was on my side throughout things. Although my case never never needed to proceed forward, I'm extremely satisfied in the work that Aaron did for me and would highly recommend him to anyone faced with a DUI.

A DUI Client

Being subjected to the DUI legal process is daunting. I was referred to Aaron Black and from the moment I met Aaron, I believed he gave me the best chance to present and defend my case. He was professional, thorough, and most important, knowledgeable about all aspects and facts needed to defend me. Over my career, I have been exposed to many business lawyers. Without a doubt, Aaron's representation was first class and I would highly recommend him under the most difficult of circumstances. You will guarantee that your rights are well defended. Aaron is a star!

I highly recommend Aaron Black as an attorney! Renee
Aaron has been there every step of the way for a very challenging case...He believes in you, so it's easy to believe in him. Steve
Attorney Aaron Black was a gift!! He did the research, presented the evidence and I did NOT go to prison or jail. I am eternally grateful. Dr. Soki
Aaron was a voice of calm and reason at an extremely upsetting time for me, charged with my one and only DUI. From the first meeting and throughout our time together he was extremely knowledgeable and always available to answer my questions immediately....which was extremely important to me. The case ended as expected so I was prepared for what was to come even as early as our first meeting. I would highly recommend Aaron to anyone in need of help in a similar situation. Hire Aaron
Aaron black is by far one of the most efficient, responsive, and helpful lawyers that I have been in contact with. I am an out-of-state resident, on vacation in Arizona and got a aggravated DWI. Being from a different state I had no idea where to begin. I went on Google and did some research, and I went on a AVOO.com searching for DWI lawyers. I was searching by highest recommended, and there was Aaron. I called his office and within an hour I got a callback from him personally, not his office. I was never in contact with a secretary or put on hold or forwarded to answering machine, whenever I reached out him he would respond back immediately via email or telephone. I highly recommend him and because of his personal relationship that he makes with his clients. I live out of state and have never met him, he kept in contact with me and I never felt uncomfortable asking him questions, or calling. I was able to get my sentence reduced, substantially. I also was able to handle everything in my home state rather than having
to fly back down to Arizona for court hearings. He took the stress out of my entire situation. Aaron was an asset to my case and I couldn't have gotten better results. I would highly recommend him to anyone not only because of his outstanding talent in law, but also the direct, professional, personal attention he makes with his clients. If I could give him 10 stars I would! Hannah
Aaron kept me completely informed all throughout the time of my DUI case. He stayed in touch with me on a regular basis giving me the details of what was going on and what I needed to do. He got my one year license suspension overruled and also kept me from going to jail! I would recommend Aaron to anybody fighting a DUI case, he is a great guy and wants the best for his clients no matter what the situation is they are facing. Annonymous
I couldn't have been happier with Aaron! He is a class act and will work extremely hard for you. I went from DV & Disorderly Conduct x 2 to Diversion for DC x 1 only!!! Paresh
Like many of the other reviewers, I found myself in a very difficult situation. Arrested and charged with a DUI. I knew that Aaron was highly recommended as a DUI attorney, so I called him. I met him within a day or so. I found him to be easy to talk to, non-judgmental, and realistic in his assessment of my case. When the lab test came back, an extreme DUI charge was added. While being charged with a DUI in Arizona is not a good position to be in, Aaron was able to negotiate a plea bargain back down to a regular DUI. He interviewed the police officer, and unfortunately we jointly concluded that we didn't have much of a chance of beating that charge, so we took what we could get. Keep in mind that he did exactly what a good attorney should do: give your client a realistic assessment of his or her case.

He guided me through the process and, while between the costs and the penalties it can't be considered "painless," he made it as stress-free as possible. He had practical insights, the most important of which is that the mandatory "one-day" jail service can actually be just a few hours. He made sure that my reporting time said 8pm on a Tuesday. I was out be 4 a.m. the next morning. He has also followed up to make sure I am fulfilling all the other requirements of the sentence, including taking the classes, getting the ignition interlock device, etc.

Aaron clearly communicates, he is accessible, and when he takes your case, you should know that he will handle it himself. He responds quickly to emails and texts. I know I asked the same questions many times over the few months that this process was going on. He answered them all quickly, cheerfully, and without exasperation or any suggestion that I was "bothering" him. His office is NOT an assembly line operation. His fees are reasonable and clearly explained.

In my own line of work I have dealt with many, many attorneys. In Aaron's specialty, DUI defense, I can't think of anyone who could do a better job than he did. He has my highest recommendation. Annonymous
I called three attorney's right after the DUI citation ... two things stood out: (1) He was immediately available to talk and (2) He did talk -- in 20 minutes on the first call he covered a lot of ground -- the others deferred any input until I met with them. Here are things really significant about my experience with Aaron: (1) He is direct/frank, but there is a natural kindness/emphathy that is apparent. (2) Any, and I mean any question that I had during the process was answered almost instantaneously. When you're worried about something, getting a quick answer is the ultimate act of kindness. He was so responsive I wondered if the "man had a life"! (3) My sentence was a tough one: Super Extreme DUI and even with very little to work with, Aaron got it reduced to Extreme DUI sparing me lots of "angst" in all areas. (4) He went out of his way to help me with the scheduling of the steps in this process -- he got my suspension to start early enabling me to get back my license in time to coincide with a personal/important trip I needed to make and got the plea date and associated jail time to coincide with a time of year that makes an outdoor confinement in the desert tolerable. In summary -- there was not one "touch point" with Aaron in this process that I wasn't completely impressed with and completely appreciative for. Previous Client
Words cannot describe how thankful I am to have met Mr. Aaron Black. After interviewing 5-7 lawyers I knew right away Mr. Black was the man for my case. Not only informative, Mr. Black is well educated in this great legal system we have (ha ha) and is well known in the right circles. He is a man among boys in the court room.
I almost lost my career due to my mistakes and was intimidated beyond belief. Aaron sat me down right away and told me the plan of attack and did not try to beat around the bush. After talking with Mr. Black I knew he was all about business and that I made the right choice. Mr. Black ALWAYS took my calls and would promptly text if he was unable to answer.
Mr. Black went above and beyond in his obligations and kept me focused and informed as nothing happens over night.
My thoughts on Mr. Aaron Black:
11 out of 10 for customer service
Goal focused
Great American who supports Military
Up to date of laws and regulations (found a mistake right away)
#1 He got me the results I was looking for.

IF YOU WANT THE BEST PICK THE BEST Major
Mr. Aaron block was referred to me directly from another attorney handling my civil case, and he immediately took charge of my criminal traffic case, in every step of the way. I couldn't be happier with his completely direct, super-professional proactive approach and strategy towards staying ahead of all the legal proceedings and leading the way until my criminal traffic case was completely dismissed just several short weeks later. Because Aaron made a point to be on top of everything, he made it possible for me to not even attend two (2) separate court appearances, thereby saving me the trouble of taking a day off without pay, and avoiding me cancelling my Fourth of July vacation plans with my family which would've required me to eat the large costs of my non-refundable airline tickets. He was outstanding at updating me via texts and voicemails and e-mails with every court filing and deadline he completed (all ahead of schedule) and even offered to meet with me on the weekend to discuss strategy after hours. One of Mr. Black's greatest values to me is the peace of mind he instilled in me the moment he took control of my case, as if to say, "you can go ahead and rest easy and step aside, John, "I got this"; and he certainly did own it, and follow through carefully and thoroughly and covered all his bases until completion / dismissal. To anyone reading this who wants to hand the reigns over to a true pro, this is your man, trust me ` you won't have any worries after you retain Mr. Aaron Black. He's truly the best at what he does, bottom line. Thank you so much for your excellent and timely professional work Aaron. I will continue to recommend anyone in need to you as a top choice for getting desired results. My family and I are very grateful to you for what you do at the highest level ! John
