Han C. Choi Scholarship


IN MEMORIAM: HAN C. CHOI

From his Law Firm, Ballard Spahr


Han C. Choi, who served as Managing Partner of Ballard Spahr's Atlanta Office, led the firm's Korea Initiative, and was respected locally and nationally for his extraordinary work on behalf of Asian American lawyers and students, died March 26, 2018.


Mr. Choi, 52, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in April 2017. He was determined to maintain his successful law practice, as well as his active civic and social life, for as long as possible. In the year since his diagnosis, Mr. Choi traveled with his wife, Catherine, and their three children. He was honored by civic organizations he helped build and grow, assisted clients with their business needs, and—as always—participated in activities that enriched the lives of others.


... "Han was a leader, a teacher, a mentor, a friend. He was all of those things in one," Ballard Spahr Associate Stephanie Kim said. "He truly cared about his clients, some of whom became his closest friends. And he listened to others because he didn't believe that his way was always the right way. Even in the most pressure-filled situation, he remained calm and looking for solutions. That had a quiet, uplifting effect on everyone around him.”
