The Max Law Firm was founded by former prosecutor, Raj Chohan, who recognized a need for a different kind of personal injury law firm in Colorado – one focused on compassion, aggressive representation, and exceptional client service.
Raj Chohan is a personal injury attorney with a passion for helping injured Coloradans seek the compensation they deserve and the justice their cases demand.
He is a former prosecutor with extensive jury trial experience in some of the most complex and serious cases that exist under Colorado law. He has won numerous jury verdicts in serious felony matters including First Degree Murder, Vehicular Homicide, Vehicular Assault, Careless Driving Causing Death, Attempted Murder, Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Robbery, Theft, Driving Under the Influence, Felony DUI, Reckless Driving, Hit and Run, and Careless Driving Causing Injury.
As a Deputy District Attorney in Weld and Jefferson Counties, Mr. Chohan earned a reputation for being a tough, dynamic and persuasive trial lawyer. During his tenure in Weld County he was named Prosecutor of the Year for the 19th Judicial District.
After leaving the District Attorney’s Office, he worked for one of the largest personal injury firms in Colorado, where he helped his clients recover millions of dollars in compensation for their injuries.
Before becoming an attorney, Mr. Chohan was an award-winning television news reporter in Denver. He spent more than a decade covering crime, politics, natural disasters and human-interest stories. He also wrote political fact-check articles for the Rocky Mountain News and hosted one of Colorado’s longest running political discussion shows on PBS Channel 12. He embraced opportunities to give a voice to the voiceless and enjoyed telling unique stories about the fascinating people who live in this great state. His journalism has received numerous professional honors including the regional Emmy Award, the regional Edward R. Murrow Award, and honors from the Colorado Broadcasters’ Association, Associated Press and The Michigan Association of Broadcasters. He has served as a board member for the Denver Press Club and continues to provide commentary and occasional legal analysis for Denver television stations.
Mr. Chohan received his law degree from the University of Denver where he graduated near the top of his class. He earned top academic honors in Trial Practice, Voir Dire, Evidence Practicum, Corporations, Media Law, and European Union Environmental Law. He also served on the Board of Editors for the Denver University Law Review.
He has authored and co-authored several legal articles on topics including First Amendment protections for public employees, managing high-profile litigation and dealing with class action objectors. His law review article on Garcetti v. Ceballos has been cited by the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals and several lower courts.
Mr. Chohan has also served on the Board of Directors for A Woman’s Place – a domestic violence shelter in Weld County.
