Chinaz Koch

Texas Personal Injury Lawyer

Chinaz Koch was born in Kurdistan, Iraq and has called Texas her home since 2001. As a Kurdish refugee, Chinaz has been instilled with a thriving passion for fighting for the rights of others.

Chinaz used this passion to obtain a Bachelor of Science from Texas A&M—Corpus Christi, and used her new-found knowledge to become a probation officer in Nueces and Harris County. Although Chinaz enjoyed serving the community and working alongside judges and attorneys as a probation officer, she wanted to take her ability to help others to a higher level, and decided to pursue a legal career. Chinaz obtained her law degree from Thurgood Marshall School of Law, where she graduated with honors (magna cum laude).

During her time in law school, Chinaz was a member of the Veterans Law Student Association and the Death Penalty Awareness Society. Chinaz was also a dean’s list recipient, and was presented with various CALI Excellence awards. She also devoted her time to being a tutor in numerous classes and by helping struggling law students.

Aside from going to law school, Chinaz spent time getting practical experience as well. Chinaz interned for the Honorable Judge Kenneth Hoyt in the Southern District of Texas, the Harris County Attorney’s Office, and a Houston personal injury and criminal law firm.

Throughout her final year as a law student, Chinaz interned for Sloan Firm, and quickly realized her passion was best fulfilled by fighting for clients who have been wronged due to the negligence of others. Chinaz prides herself in vigorously representing her clients and providing them with the close, personal attention they deserve. As an attorney at Sloan Firm, Chinaz is relentless in the pursuit of justice for her clients.

When Chinaz is not zealously representing her clients, she can be found working out, exploring the diverse Houston restaurants, and spending time with her family and friends.
