"Cary's experience, skill set and background will allow him to assist in a wide variety of cases," said Adolfo Jimenez, leader of Holland & Knight's South Florida Litigation Practice Group. "He is an asset to our white collar team members, who know Cary well after having worked together at the U.S. Attorney's Office or know him from having previously worked with the firm.

Cary was a valuable asset when he was with us, and the experience he gained the last seven years prepares him well for this new chapter."
Mr. Aronovitz served in the Special Prosecutions Section during his time at the U.S. Department of Justice where he handled investigations and cases involving numerous federal offenses, including money laundering, human trafficking of minors, organized crime activities, narcotics trafficking, aggravated identity theft and fraud against the United States.

Mr. Aronovitz's past experience includes serving as a law clerk to Magistrate Judge Alicia O. Valle of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida and as an associate for three years at Holland & Knight.
