Upon returning to California, Mr. Stewart began his legal career in Palo Alto, CA, as an associate of Sullivan & Cromwell, LLP, a prestigious Manhattan-based law firm. Mr. Stewart worked in their London, New York and Palo Alto offices. Acting on a long-held ambition of owning his own business, Mr. Stewart established the Law Offices of Aaron J.
