Our History

About

The Cochran Firm was founded over 40 years ago by the late Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr., one of the country’s most well-known and well-respected legal advocates.

Comprised of a select group of lawyers chosen by Mr. Cochran himself to carry out his legacy, The Cochran Firm provides high-quality, effective representation for ordinary citizens throughout the country. Our attorneys pride themselves in standing up for the rights of people and families who have been wronged by the conduct of others, be it a personal injury or wrongful death matter, or a case arising out of police abuse or government misconduct.

The Cochran Firm has been twice named to the National Law Journal’s Plaintiff’s Hot List, a listing of the country’s top 12 plaintiff’s law firms. In addition, our lawyers have garnered some of the highest honors in their field, including obtaining “AV” ratings from Martindale-Hubbell, being selected to Super Lawyers, and earning Trial Lawyer of the Year awards from prominent industry associations.

At The Cochran Firm California , our experienced attorneys are a diverse group of California natives who celebrate and reflect the diversity of the people we represent.

Cochran, Jr. Middle School in the heart of Los Angeles’ mid-city neighborhood.

Through our work in numerous cases involving police misconduct and other civil rights issues, The Cochran Firm Los Angeles has been responsible for significant regulatory and procedural changes in the way businesses, police agencies, hospitals, and doctors conduct themselves, ensuring the safety of Angelinos.
