Frequently Asked questions

Q. How much does it cost to have Choate Law Firm represent me?

A: Typically, nothing. We represent people who have been wrongfully injured and the families of people who have been wrongfully killed on a contingency fee basis. That means that rather than charge by the hour, we get paid a percentage of what we recover. 

Q. Where do you practice?

A. We have attorneys licensed to practice in Alaska, California, Hawaii, New York, and Washington, and work with attorneys in those and many other states. Our main office is in Juneau, Alaska and we plan to open an office in Seattle in 2018. 

Q. Will you take my case? 

A. Because we work on a contingency fee basis, we have to evaluate a number of variables to determine whether we can take a specific case at a specific point in time. If we don't take your case, we recommend that you contact other attorneys to see if your case is a better fit for them and their practice.
