Dionne E. Choyce has acquired a great reputation for being a passionate and hardworking trial attorney. His courtroom development began at the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law, where he helped lead the McGeorge trial competition team to a Regional Championship in the American Trial Lawyers Association Competition (ATLA).

After graduating from law school, Mr. Choyce went to work for the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office (Oakland, CA), where he gained extensive courtroom experience prosecuting all phases of criminal cases, including jury trials, felony preliminary hearings, juvenile felony trials, as well as misdemeanor and felony law and motion hearings.

Mr. Choyce has handled hundreds of traffic and DUI cases, and has mastered the art of skillful negotiation and plea-bargaining in this area, which allow his clients to receive the best possible outcome. As a former prosecutor in one of California’s toughest jurisdictions, Mr. Choyce understands how to evaluate a criminal trial case, and will vigorously represent his clients to possibly get criminal charges reduced or dismissed. With respect to personal injury clients, because Mr. Choyce has tried dozens of trials before judges and juries, he will not hesitate to seek justice by way of a jury trial when insurance companies fail to adequately compensate those injured in serious accidents. 

Mr. Choyce received his undergraduate degree in English (with honors) from Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia. He then went on to receive his graduate degree from Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He earned his law degree from the University of Pacific, McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento, California. Mr. Choyce is a member of the Charles Houston Bar Association, the Wiley E. Manuel Bar Association, the Sacramento Consumer Attorneys, and the Sacramento County Bar Association.

In his free time,  Mr.Choyce enjoys reading, going to church, and spending quality time with his family.

Dionne Choyce was the best choice for me!
Mr. Choyce helped me w/ a few cases. He helped me w/ a DUI, a case where I was charged with harassment and threats, as well as, a violation of probation case. He was very helpful for all cases and, in fact, got all of them dismissed! I highly recommend anyone with a criminal case, DUI or traffic matter to come to him. His service was excellent!! Not only that, but his staff was also very helpful and attentive.

This is my second time using Mr. Choyce, and I would choose no one other than him.
Both times that I hired him, it was for my son, and they were very serious cases. Mr. Choyce is smart, professional, practical, and relatable. He is a serious person, who listens, speaks in laymens terms, so that you understand what is going on. Not like some that I have experience, who talk over you, and dont take the time to really answer your questions.The second case got very close to going to trial, however, I was confident that I had the best of the best representing my son. Thank God that after willing to go to trial, we got a deal that, I think was a win win.I would definitely, without a question, hire Mr. Choyce again!

attempted murder with an automobile
Mr. Choyce is an excellent attorney. He is a Christian, honest and easy to talk to person. He will go the extra mile to help you achieve the best outcome for your situation! I had the utmost confidence in Mr. Choyce representing me. His sensitivity to situations and his honesty is forthright. I appreciate that he was upfront and I truly think he is a wonderful human being fighting for us the underdogs! I would highly recommend him to anyone and I will be using his services again next year when I need to appoint my best friend to make medical decisions for me if I am unable to do so again in the future. I sincerely say there is not another attorney that I trust as much as Mr. Choyce. God Bless him and his family

The Best!
Mr. Choyce is a great lawyer! He is professional, he is honest, he is personable, he is diligent, he is smart, he is compassionate...everything that you need when going through life changing situations. I hired Mr. Choyce 2 months ago. He was the second lawyer I hired for my sons case, which he was being charged with 3 felonies. I knew that I made the right decision when my son called me from jail, and told me " I like him mom, he actually listened to what I had to say, and responded in a way that I understood". Mr.Choyce made me feel like our situation was important to him. If I had a concern he always took out time to communicate with me until I felt comfortable about any situation concerning the case. For a busy, I considered this great service. The big part of this review is that after my son spending 7 months in jail, Mr. Choyce was able to work a great deal, that will prevent my son's record from being tarnished for future opportunities.

A man of his word
Without going into to much detail, he was able to reduce two felony charges from charges that a person i know was facing; He guaranteed that he would have those charges dropped and he did. Very highly recommended

Top of the Line!
I recently had an issue where I was being railroaded because of my past. Mr. Choyce listened to my problems, he was well organized and prepared. I was being falsely accused and Mr. Choyce didn't allow me to be bullied by the prosecution. I not only had a lawyer I had a friend in court with me. It was like he was family or something; only he knew what he was doing. He protected me from malicious, overzealous and manipulative prosecution. Heaven Sent!

Well prepared and realiable
THE CHOYCE LAW FIRM was able to pick up my case without me even being there. I was very satisfied with the way they handled things. I will tell my friends!

Satisfied
The Choyce Law Firm was able to get what I needed done. The only complaint was the lack of communication. I had to call them twice to find out the status of my case.

Misunderstanding review and recommend this attorney
I'm glad Dionne was able to do right for my situation. I was a frustrated client who didn't let him do his job and posted a review prematurely. Dionne will get it done

He pays great attention to details
The Choyce Law Firm is an excellent law firm; Mr Choyce represented me recently in a case we won. I highly recommend this lawyer!! He takes the time to understand your case and pays attention to details. Besides that he’s always responsive and easy to reach. He is the best for your money if you need a lawyer in San Francisco. He really cares and does not treat you just like any client.

excellent with help and support
If it wasn't for The Choyce Law Firm I don't know how I would have gotten through my recent car accident. My car was a total wreck and so was the guy who bumped me despite him driving a Chevy truck. I also sustained serious leg, neck and back injury and so did my dog on the passenger seat. Dionne Choyce and his team were excellent lawyers in providing me with help and support to getting compensation!

Dionne is a very knowledgeable man
Dionne's extensive knowledge in the courtroom is second to none. I was facing serious charges, expensive fines and a jail sentence. To be frank, in court I thought this time this is it, there’s no way out for me, it’s over... I literally was prepared for the worst. But Dionne's dedicated commitment to my case all these months I’ve come to know him and his personal touch resulted a minimal fine and no jail time. The Choyce Law Firm is the best; one of the top law firm around!
