Our Vision

Established in 1995, John E. Choate, Jr  became a lawyer because he cares about helping his clients who are facing life changing events.  Focusing on clients in Montgomery County and surrounding counties, our office carefully and thoroughly prepares each case regardless of the severity of the case. This preparation starts at the initial case evaluation which is when we meet with prospective clients to discuss their details. It goes on as we prepare for court. This preparation routinely uncovers important facts that could lead to a successful resolution of your case.

Our office takes pride in our reputation as thoughtful, skilled, and knowledgeable in the field of criminal defense, civil and litigation. Make an appointment; the initial consultation is free. Find out how we can help.

Every court filing, appearance, and telephone call should be focused on meeting client goals and ensuring that the matter is resolved in a matter that benefits the client. This may involve exploring conventional methods for relief, such as a lawsuit, and unconventional methods, such as out of court mediation.

The lawyer you hire should have more than a passing familiarity with the legal issues you encounter.  The lawyer should be prepared to handle the most complex issues related to your legal concern and capable of standing up and fighting for you.

Our Mission

We selected and trained our office staff to support you throughout your legal process with a focus on service. Each player has designated responsibilities that provide coverage, ranging from objecting in court to methodical research or even being aggressive with offending parties when necessary.

Our mission is to fulfill the terms set forth during the initial consultation. Right from the start, we will set goals and develop a plan of action to achieve your success.
