Aaron Tobin is an accomplished trial lawyer whose practice focuses on complex commercial and bankruptcy representation. Aaron is the head of Condon Tobin Sladek Thornton’s litigation and bankruptcy practice groups.

Aaron regularly represents Fortune 500 companies, small and mid-size businesses, executives, officers, directors and entrepreneurs in state and federal courts in Texas and across the country in the areas of securities, oil and gas, employment, intellectual property, antitrust, breach of contract, fiduciary duty, officer and director liability, business fraud, fraudulent transfer, and surety litigation. He has successfully tried breach of contract, fiduciary duty, fraud, oil and gas, securities, real estate, conspiracy and other business claims in state and federal court, obtaining over $72 million dollars in jury verdicts in business cases. In 2014, Aaron led a trial team that obtained a large jury verdict in favor of some investors in an oil and gas securities fraud case. The National Law Journal published the verdict as being one of the 100 largest verdicts in the country in 2014.

Aaron frequently represents debtors, trustees and creditors in bankruptcy proceedings and workout litigation, to include fraudulent transfer, preference and other avoidance actions, confirmation, discharge and claims objections, as well as other adversary disputes and post-judgment litigation.

Aaron is passionate about serving the Bar and the community in which he lives and works. He volunteers his time to serve on local non-profit boards, mentor young lawyers and to serve in his favorite role as a big brother in the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization. He frequently speaks to young lawyers and serves as a guest instructor in the Dallas Bar Association’s trial academy. In 2014, Aaron co-chaired the Dallas Bar Association’s Equal Access to Justice Campaign, which raised a then-record amount of over $920,000 for the Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program which supports pro bono efforts.
