Aaron Street


Aaron is Lawyerist’s co-founder. Since its founding in 2009, Aaron has helped lead the company’s business growth and vision. In 2023, Lawyerist merged with Affinity Consulting Group where Aaron now serves as CFO.

His brilliance on the team is:

Aaron is able to see and carve out a vision for the future with adept clarity, while still allowing everyone on the team space to determine how it happens. He naturally frees up space for the team to bring their expertise and it easy to feel heard and empowered around Aaron.


Aaron has an uncanny ability to maintain perspective while discussing the minutiae of a particular job or task. While discussing a matter in depth, he always has its broader implications in mind. While others may veer off course into the unnecessary, or irrelevant, Aaron is always there to shepherd the conversation back.


For the past decade, we’ve been preparing small law firms for the fact that disruption is coming. Now that it’s clearly here, we’re excited to use the opportunities of our challenging times to help lawyers rethink how their firms work so they can be healthier businesses, healthier employers, more client-centered, and better individuals.
