Ronald Tran


Ronald Tran is a distinguished trial lawyer at Cholakian & Associates, a prominent civil litigation firm with offices strategically positioned throughout Northern California. After just two years of exceptional performance at the firm, he earned the well-deserved promotion to partner.


Ronald regularly represents a portfolio of approximately ten major insurance carriers across California in both state and federal courts. He has first-chaired 50 jury and bench trials, with the first 30 jury trials conducted within the first five years of practice. With a decade of profound legal experience, he is well equipped to defend self-insured and insured clients against claims involving catastrophic injury, wrongful death, and commercial disputes. Further, Ronald has negotiated favorable settlements in dozens of mediations and other forums of alternative dispute resolution.


As Ronald adeptly navigates all aspects of defense-oriented litigation and trials, he draws upon a legal acumen that is complemented by his background as a former criminal prosecutor. Recognized for his outstanding contributions to the legal community, Ronald was deservedly named among Super Lawyers Northern California Rising Stars from 2021 to 2023. Having graduated cum laude from the University of San Francisco School of Law, Ronald's passion for the legal field was evident as he served on the Board of Editors and published notable works in the USF Law Review. He further honed his skills during law school, leading his mock trial team in the ABA Labor and Employment Law Trial Advocacy Competition, as well as completing judicial externships in both the state and federal courts.
