JOSH ARONSON, ESQ., CDFA

Attorney and Financial Analyst

Josh graduated from the University of Arizona with a BA in Journalism and a minor in Economics. At Arizona, he spent significant amounts of time modeling various financial markets, including a labor economics analysis of NBA salaries based on a variety of statistics, long before NBA teams started heavily using analytical data. Josh attended law school at Florida State University College of Law after scoring in the 98th percentile on the Law School Admissions Test (“LSAT”). At Florida State, Josh received “A” grades in, among other things, Dissolution of Marriage and Statistics for Lawyers. Josh Aronson moved to Nevada in 2011 after practicing law in Florida.

In December 2016, Josh became a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (“CDFA”). A CDFA professional is a financial professional skilled at analyzing data and providing expertise on the financial issues of divorce. The role of the CDFA professional is to assist the client and his or her attorney to understand how the decisions he or she makes today will impact the client’s financial future. A CDFA can take on many roles in the divorce process, including providing financial expertise and strategy, data collection and analysis, litigation support, and, if necessary, being an expert witness at trial or during mediation.

Josh provides a unique combination of financial wherewithal, attention to detail, and legal expertise. Josh has been enthralled by statistics and spreadsheets his entire life, and can design a spreadsheet for pretty much any purpose. Josh has professional experience as a bookkeeper, and legal experience doing financial modeling for personal injury law claims, working at a business and tax law firm, and has been practicing family law for several years.

In his spare time, Josh enjoys playing and watching sports, playing poker, and spending time with his wife and two young sons.
