Perry Choren has spent his entire career as a civil litigator, gaining experience in almost every field available to him. He received his J.D. with honors from The George Washington University Law School. While in law school, Perry served as a judicial intern for the Honorable William H. Pauley, III in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York and for the Honorable Leland Anderson in the District Court of Jefferson County, Colorado. These experiences gave him invaluable insight regarding judicial expectations throughout the various phases of litigation and trial.
After law school, Perry spent several years protecting the rights of firefighters and police officers throughout Maryland. After six years at various plaintiffs' firms in Maryland and D.C., Perry wanted a new perspective and joined a large defense firm where he handled a broad range of civil matters, including general liability, medical malpractice, premises liability, and high-exposure tort claims. Throughout his career, Perry's primary focus has been on litigation, routinely appearing in the circuit courts of Maryland, D.C. Superior Court, and U.S. District Courts. During this time, he made the change to family law out of a desire to represent families and the complex and unique issues that they face.
Just prior to joining Delaney Stafford, Perry spent several years at a boutique family law firm in D.C. where he practiced all aspects of family law. His broad legal experience prior to becoming a family law attorney taught him the ins and outs of negotiation, mediation, discovery, and all other aspects of litigating complex cases. Perry's depth of experience in court allows him to engage first in creative problem-solving, knowing that if settlement is not possible, he will be fully prepared for trial. Perry works collaboratively with every client to promote their and their children's best interests, inside and outside of the courtroom.
