About Raj

Learn Raj’s areas of practice.

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.

Personal injury, hit and run
I heartily recommend Raj Chohan as a personal injury attorney. In our initial interview, he listened carefully to my description of the incident and clearly explained my options. He was completely knowledgeable regarding requirements, procedures and timing as the case developed; he handled it all. He regularly kept me informed as the case proceeded and asked for my review and approval where appropriate. I was well-represented and would use Raj Chohan and his Max Law Firm again if I found it necessary.

Great experience throughout the process.
The initial consultation was excellent. Raj took the time to thoroughly inform me of my options with proceeding with my personal injury case. He was clearly knowledgable of personal injury law, negotiation options, written demand options, and court procedures should we need to go to court. I hired Raj, and he regularly communicated as expected to update me on progress during the entire 1.5 year process from hire to final settlement resolution. Every communication was thorough, and Raj always requested my express consent prior to taking the next action in the case, and prior to sending key communications to other parties. Raj was able to secure me a settlement without the need to take the case to court. Even though we did not have to go through a court proceeding, Raj prepared my case and documented all of the materials as though they would go to trial, which was a huge asset and relief to be prepared for that possibility. I believe his approach also allowed us to put together settlement demands that had very thorough exhibits attached that conveyed the medical need for the settlement amounts requested. Even after the settlement was reached and delivered, Raj continued to work on contacting vendors with remaining invoices that were not submitted timely by the medical providers. Eventually, there was one outstanding invoice remaining, and both Raj and his legal assistant put in many extra hours trying to establish contact with a particularly unresponsive vendor. Due to their additional work, beyond the scope of our initial agreement, Raj was both able to get me awarded the full requested and negotiated settlement, and also resolve every outstanding invoice. Because of Raj and his team, I can put the entire car accident, medical bills, and insurance claims behind me, and have money to cover future medical expenses for my remaining injuries. I was very impressed with Raj throughout the entire process, and would highly recommend him as a personal injury lawyer.

Recommendation for Raj Chohan
I was the victim in an auto accident and was dealing with both insurance companies about my injuries and I was at my wits end. Raj took my case and sorted out the difficulties and dealt with the insurance companies with the utmost skill and was successful in getting a fair settlement. Raj explained the process from the beginning and provided updates to me in a timely manner. I am so grateful that I was referred to Raj. He was knowledgeable about auto accidents and insurance, he was calm and communicated my options so that I could make informed decisions about how to proceed. He guided me through the process and was resourceful, hardworking and persevered through sorting out medical issues in my case. He is a good listener and that really increased my confidence. I highly recommend Raj.

Personal, professional, and determined to get the best outcome for his clients
We hired The Max Law Firm to help us after our family member was injured in an accident. Raj Chohan was professional, courteous, transparent, and empathetic. He clearly explained all the legal processes we would encounter and kept us fully informed as our case progressed. He saw the entire process to the end, including the setting up of a trust for the settlement funds. Most importantly, Raj himself worked directly on our case—it was not farmed out to someone else in his firm. We greatly appreciated his personal involvement and his attention to detail. While no one wants to be in a situation that requires a personal injury lawyer, we whole-heartedly recommend The Max Law Firm and Raj Chohan to anyone needing this type of legal assistance.

Supportive, hard-working, and very knowledgeable
Raj worked on a case where I had to sue a hit-and-run drunk driver who was uninsured but did have personal assets. Raj was attentive and supportive each step of the way and brought my case to a satisfying resolution. He was available any time that I had questions or was wrestling with the stress of the process. I appreciated Raj's integrity, intelligence, and personable manner. He was a terrific attorney for me.
