From the Editor:
Aaron is always a willing and able contributor to The Checkoff and E-Updates, and a pleasure to work with. His employment law passion and expertise are evident in his writings. Please reach out to Aaron to thank him for his longstanding contributions to the section! Aaron has been involved in the practice of employment law in New York and Florida for over thirty years.
Currently a partner in the Miami firm of Pathman Lewis, LLP, where he heads its employment practice, Aaron began his career at Proskauer in New York, handling labor cases for its union clients, before ultimately moving to Florida in 1998. Aaron has written extensively for the Labor and Employment Law Section on a variety of topics, notably the development of and expansion of employment protections in Florida for gay, lesbian, and transgender employees, including co-authoring a special report on the landmark decision in Bostock v. Clayton County, from the last United States Supreme Court term.
Aaron has been a featured speaker on labor and employment topics for National Public Radio, the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce, and the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce, among others, and has provided human resource training to several public and private institutions over the years.

Aaron is a passionate racquetball player and proud collector of comic books and comic art. His collection includes rare first editions from the 1960s of Fantastic Four, Daredevil, Avengers, and X-Men, and his office contains comic memorabilia that he and Heidi collected from San Diego Comic Con over the years. Aaron is also active in his local community and will become chair of the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce in October 2021.
