Representing clients at all levels of government, Aaron Greenfield is relentless in taking on issues with passion and energy. In 2011, The Maryland Daily Record named Aaron one of its "Leadership in Law" recipients for his pro bono work representing 650 Holocaust survivors from around the world before Congress and state legislatures. Aaron was instrumental in passing the first law in the United States requiring the French National Railroad, which took Holocaust victims to death camps and was paid per head per kilometer, to open up its archives, disclose, digitize and post on-line all of its records before it or a subsidiary receives any state contract for operating commuter rail service.
Aaron represents corporate, non-profit and public-sector clients in a number of industries including healthcare, transportation, telecommunications, real estate and technology before local, state and federal governments. Aaron is active in a number of community and business organizations and has served as a guest lecturer and speaker at a number of universities and law schools on topics related to politics and the political process, law, higher education and the Holocaust.
Prior to opening a law firm with partner Bill Kress, Aaron served as Special Counsel to a major international firm where his practice focused on corporate and administrative law, executive, legislative and regulatory advocacy. From December 2006 until February 2009, Aaron served as Chief of Staff to Howard County Executive Ken Ulman, and was responsible for coordinating and integrating the efforts and initiatives of various departments. Before being appointed Chief of Staff, Aaron was President and CEO of the Anne Arundel Economic Development Corporation. In this capacity, Aaron focused his agenda on Base Realignment and Closure Commission (BRAC) issues, homeland security, technology and small business.
