Voted one of Greenville’s “Elite Criminal Defense Attorneys” by the Greenville Business Magazine in 2013, 2015, and 2016, Aaron De Bruin fights for the rights of every one of his clients – no matter how small or large a legal case may be. Whether his clients have been arrested for misdemeanors or felonies, whether it is their first offense or a subsequent offense, Aaron works hard to make sure his clients are treated fairly and that their legal rights are protected.
An attorney since 2008, Aaron has handled cases regarding criminal law, estate planning, family law, and military law matters. Prior to starting his law practice in Greenville, Aaron began his legal career as a prosecutor in the military for the United States Marine Corps. As a Marine Officer, Aaron prosecuted a wide variety of criminal cases. Aaron was responsible for managing a heavy caseload during his time as a prosecutor. He was in charge of each phase of case preparation and litigation and he worked closely with military internal law enforcement organizations, including the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. As a Marine, Aaron understands the importance of discipline, time management, and attention to detail, and his clients appreciate his dedication to their cases.
Aaron’s unique experience as a former prosecutor, coupled with his intense military litigation experience, has helped Aaron when representing his clients’ best interests. Aaron is a skilled negotiator who is able to obtain excellent results for his clients, whether it is a reduction of charges, a favorable plea deal, or even a dismissal of charges. Aaron is not afraid of the courtroom and will do whatever it takes to serve his clients. If a case goes to trial, Aaron is confident in the courtroom and is able to connect the evidence, the facts of the case, and applicable laws to make his arguments both compelling and easy for the jury to understand.
In addition to criminal law, Aaron also handles estate planning matters for his clients. Aaron understands that estate planning can be an uncomfortable topic for his clients, but by explaining the advantages of making specific arrangements, his clients feel at ease with their decisions. Aaron has drafted wills for his clients and has helped them make other types of arrangements to ensure their loved ones are taken care of. One client said, “Aaron was thorough and made sure that everything that I wanted and needed was included. He was in constant contact with me to make sure that I fully understood everything.”
Aaron earned his Juris Doctor from Ohio Northern University, Claude W. Pettit College of Law in 2008. He was admitted to practice in South Carolina in 2008. For close to the last decade, Aaron has advocated for clients both inside and outside of South Carolina courtrooms. Aaron enjoys serving clients in Upstate South Carolina.
