The Cochran Firm Legacy

JOHNNIE B&W

Welcome to the website of The Cochran Firm, a law firm founded by legendary attorney Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr. over four decades ago. With regional offices nationwide, The Cochran Firm is one of the nation’s largest personal injury & medical malpractice law firms with some of the most aggressive personal injury attorneys, known for their tireless and effective legal representation. The Cochran Firm Partners have secured over $35 Billion in verdicts, settlements, and judgments for our clients including but not limited to trucking accidents, personal injury, medical malpractice, and wrongful death cases.

With a reputation like ours, it’s easy to get swept away with accolades and awards. At The Cochran Firm, though, our experienced and aggressive personal injury attorneys and criminal defense lawyers focus not on praise, but the dedication to handling quality, legal representation for injured people, their families, and the ordinary citizen, as implemented by Johnnie Cochran over four decades ago. Contact us today to speak with an expert criminal defense or personal injury lawyer, and schedule a consultation to discuss your personal injury, medical malpractice, wrongful death or other case.
