The company provides services for vertical markets including construction, diversified commercial, government contracting, nonprofit, professional services, real estate and technology companies.[2]


The firm was formed in 1962 by Gerald R. Aronson.[3] With additions to management came several name changes: in 1974, the firm was renamed Aronson, Greene, Fisher & Co., Chartered; in 1986 it became Aronson, Fetridge, Weigle & Stern; in 1992, Aronson Fetridge, Weigle & Schimel; in 1994, Aronson, Fetridge & Weigle; and in 2001, Aronson & Company. In 2011, the firm adopted its current name, Aronson LLC when it changed its corporate management structure.

In 2004 the company established the Aronson Foundation, a charitable organization, in 2004, with a primary focus on the needs of children. Foundation funding comes from donations and philanthropic work by company staff, officers, clients and contacts.[4]

In 2005, Aronson merged with Capron Associates, LLP, a small public accounting firm based in Bethesda, Maryland.[5] Capron was absorbed into Aronson's organizational structure, operating under the Aronson name and moving to their Rockville offices. In 2008, the company integrated Norman A. Snyder, III, CPA's audit practice, formerly associated with Virginia's Fitzgerald, Snyder & Co., into their practice. In 2009, Aronson moved to new headquarters in Rockville.
