D. Aaron Rihn


D. Aaron Rihn wanted to be an attorney ever since he saw Gregory Peck in To Kill a Mockingbird. Atticus Finch has likely been an inspiration to generations of lawyers who are the conscious of the nation, and, along with the press, the best and last defense against tyranny.

He approaches his practice by getting to know his clients and understanding their motivations and expectations. He is dedicated to treating each and every one of his clients with respect, regardless of their background or education and is very passionate about the law, and about my clients. Attorney Rihn tries to infuse that passion into everything he does to resonate with a jury.

Aaron grew up in Tarentum, Pennsylvania, a mill town just north of Pittsburgh. Like many other parents, his free time is spent hopping from extracurricular to extracurricular for his three children, and he loves every second of it.
