The firm was formed in 1962 by Gerald R. Aronson, in the basement of his home in Bethesda, Maryland.[3]

With additions to management came several name changes over the years. In 1974, the firm was renamed Aronson, Greene, Fisher & Co., Chartered; in 1986, 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. Foundation funding comes from donations and philanthropic work by company team members, 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.
