The Cochran Firm
Founded over 40 years ago by famed attorney, Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr., The Cochran Firm, as it is known today, has established itself as one of the premier plaintiffs’ litigation and criminal defense law firms in the United States. With offices located across the United States, The Cochran Firm has brought together into one firm, a diverse group of some of the most highly-experienced and respected men and women dedicated to bringing quality representation for injured people, their families, and the ordinary citizen.
Recognized as leaders in the legal profession, the attorneys of The Firm have obtained significant verdicts or settlements in a multitude of noteworthy cases in many areas of its legal practice. With its integrated, state-of-the-art information software and case management system, The Cochran Firm is able to offer its clients the depth of legal expertise, talent, and resources available throughout The Firm.
Named to The National Law Journal’s Plaintiffs’ Hot List, The Cochran Firm has been profiled as one of America’s top plaintiffs’ law firms. The Hot List is a compendium of the country’s top 12 plaintiffs’ law firms doing the “most to shape the law in America.” In 2005, The Cochran Firm was named to The NLJ 250 list, The National Law Journal’s survey of the largest law firms in America. Notably, The Cochran Firm held the exclusive position of appearing concurrently on both of these celebrated lists.
As one of America’s largest personal injury law firms, The Cochran Firm has positioned itself to handle civil cases on behalf of its clients in the areas of personal injury, product liability, wrongful death, fraud, truck and automobile accidents, medical malpractice, environmental pollution, complex and commercial litigation, class action and mass torts, and nursing home abuse. Additionally, our criminal defense attorneys aggressively defend those clients charged with criminal offenses by developing strategies which will most effectively shape their case.
The Cochran Firm is the execution of Johnnie’s vision to have “a diverse law firm which reflects society and is capable of handling cases throughout America.” The attorneys and staff at The Firm are committed to upholding the standards of excellence set by its founding partner in representing all of their clients.
