About Me

I am  a  partner  in  the law firm of Choi & Fabian, PLC, with offices in Chandler and Flagstaff, Arizona.  We focus our practice on protecting consumers from avaricious business practices using consumer protection statutes such as the Consumer Fraud Act, Fair Credit Reporting Act, Truth in Lending Act, Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and the Uniform Commercial Code.  I have handled hundreds of successful consumer protection cases including class action lawsuits against car dealers and finance companies.  My work has resulted in the following published decisions favoring consumers: Howell v. Midway Infiniti., 362 F.Supp.2d 1158 (Ariz. 2005); Uhlig v. Berge Ford, 257 F.Supp.2d 1228 (Ariz, 2003); and Garden Lakes Community Association v. Madigan, 204 Ariz. 238, 62 P.2d 983 (App. 2003). Winkler v. DTE, Inc., 205 F.R.D. 235 (Ariz. 2001). I received my J.D., cum laude, from the Arizona State University College of Law in 1993.
