Aaron M. Hudson
Prior to beginning his legal career, Aaron M. Hudson served as a U.S. Army
paratrooper stationed in Alaska and at Fort Bragg, North Carolina with
the 82nd Airborne Division. It was during his proud service that he developed
the fearlessness and leadership he employs today as the Managing Attorney
of Christopher R. Abernathy, APLC. During his service, his competitiveness
and communication skills, as well as his superior ability to quickly learn
and apply information, culminated in his selection as the U.S. Army Pacific
Soldier of the Year in 1994.
After his honorable discharge, Aaron obtained an Associate Degree in Paralegal
Studies from MTI College of Business and Technology in Sacramento. From
there, he was admitted to Lincoln Law School of Sacramento, wherein he
received honors for the top grade-point-average in his first year, and
American Jurisprudence Awards in both Torts and Contracts. He was also
honored in Moot Court with Best Written Brief and received an Honorable
Mention in oral argument. Upon graduation, he passed the California Bar
Exam on his first attempt.
Aaron has done nearly every job within a litigation law firm, from his
first job as the errand-runner of a mid-size firm, through the ranks as
assistant, paralegal, law clerk and then associate attorney. Although
he spent many years as the owner of his own thriving law practice, Aaron
is now in his ideal role, as the Managing Attorney of the top family law
litigation firm in the Inland Empire.
