Biographical

Steven C. Choquette, Esq., is passionate about helping parties and their advocates resolve disputes in a fair, respectful, efficient and economical manner. Mr. Choquette’s skill in dispute resolution is informed by 15 years of experience as a mediator and arbitrator, and more than 30 years as an advocate in trials, appeals, arbitrations and mediations. The qualities and commitment he brings to alternative dispute resolution matters include:  thorough, advance preparation for all cases, whether complex or small; empathic listening and guidance; a calm and reasoned demeanor and good humor; creative problem-solving; leadership of the process; unflagging dedication to helping parties resolve disputes, including via ongoing follow-up when needed.  He is available for cases across Colorado and nationwide. He is always happy to come to you if that is more convenient than using JAMS’ Denver office.

Mr. Choquette joined JAMS after spending the first two decades of his legal career as a commercial, insurance and tort litigator with Holland & Hart LLP. He then co-founded and managed two other law firms—Choquette & Simons LLP and Choquette & Hart LLP—where he continued such work for nearly 12 more years, in addition to serving as an expert witness in attorney malpractice and fee dispute cases.
