Aaron I. Mandel


To me, the practice of law is the blending of complexity and creativity. While trends and case law shape the way we practice, success in the courtroom comes from making sense of the complex nature of the matter and applying thoughtful creativity to the issues at hand. The complete representation I provide my clients is marked by a deep understanding of the issues, a firm grasp of previous court rulings, and an instinct for bringing the action to a successful resolution. In addition to the service and dedication I bring my clients, I feel privileged to have handled a variety of interesting cases, including a noteworthy dispute that was argued in Missouri Supreme Court.”
